Garland’s blunt and realistic prose delves into the struggles of farmers, the injustices they face, and the impact of economic hardship on families. The collection of short stories portrays the bleakness of everyday life in a raw and unfiltered manner, capturing the essence of the literary naturalism movement of the time. The stark descriptions and somber tone provide readers with a glimpse into the harshness of existence in the American heartland. Garland’s keen observance of human nature and his ability to convey it through his writing makes Main-Travelled Roads a poignant and thought-provoking read. Hamlin Garland, himself a product of the Midwest and a witness to the struggles of rural life, drew inspiration from his own experiences to craft the stories in Main-Travelled Roads. His background as a farmer and his deep connection to the land shines through in his portrayal of the characters and their environments. Garland’s commitment to depicting the truth of life in the Midwest adds credibility and depth to the narratives, providing readers with a glimpse into a world that is both harsh and beautiful in its simplicity.
