1656. Ernest Poole, 1880-1950.

Ernest Poole was a novelist concerned with social problems. He commonly wrote with the point of view of a socialist of the early part of the century. His first novel, The Voice of the Street (1906), which depicts poverty in New York’s East Side, in a way set the pace for his works, which often deal with American problems, frequently with a New York particularization. However, there are exceptions, such as With Western Eyes (1926), in which a Russian scientist views America; The Nancy Flyer, a Stagecoach Epic (1949), a reconstruction of stagecoach history in Poole’s adopted state of New Hampshire; and Blind: A Story Of These Times (1920), which in part portrays tenement life in New York, but also deals with Europe and the Russian Revolution. The Bridge, an autobiography, was published in 1940.
