Item description for Una tragedia americana (An American Tragedy) (Narrativa (Punto de Lectura)) by Theodore Dreiser...

Based on a real-life story, An American Tragedy takes us into the life of Clyde Griffiths an apathetic man, totally lacking in character. Brought up in poverty, he murders his pregnant girlfriend to marry a woman who will bring him into the world of riches and social recognition he has always yearned for. This is the classic depiction of the harsh realities of American life, the dark side of the American Dream, and one man's doomed pursuit of love and success, it is a portrayal of one of the darker phases of the American character, it demands attention.

Description in Spanish: Inspirada en un caso real, la novela cuenta la historia de Clyde Griffiths, un hombre de carcter dbil, ablico e indeciso, criado en la pobreza, que asesina a su novia embarazada, de la que se avergenza, para casarse con una mujer que puede abrirle las puertas del bienestar material y la posicin social que ambiciona. La obra fue llevada al teatro y en dos ocasiones al cine, la segunda de ellas con gran xito, bajo el ttulo de Un lugar en el sol (1951) y con un reparto de lujo: Montgomery Clift y Elizabeth Taylor.
