Description The Time of Man de Elizabeth Madox Roberts:

From Pulitzer Prize nominee Elizabeth Madox Roberts comes The Time of Man, a powerful and arresting Southern American classic. Set at the turn of the century during the pioneering era, it tells the story of Ellen Chesser, a strong young woman with a mind of her own. She and her family travel from one small community to another in rural Kentucky, eking out a living as itinerant farmworkers. Initially she feels isolated and lonely, resenting the hardship of her life and longing to be with her childhood friends. Yet slowly she learns what it means to fall in love and forges lasting friendships with other young people at the local dances. She is left stunned, therefore, when the man she is to marry comes to her to confess a dark secret. His past is shameful to him and heartbreaking for her, but Ellen's independent spirit and strength of character sustain her in the aftermath. When further accusations come to light, they threaten to disturb the tranquility of her life and that of the community where she lives forever. Written in the subtle, soaring prose for which Elizabeth Madox Roberts was known, The Time of Man is a spectacular coming of age story. As she grows older, Ellen Chesser is forced to confront the darker side of human nature but ultimately manages to overcome the difficulties she faces with a resolute dignity. Born in 1881, and with writing comparable to Willa Cather, William Falkner, Robert Penn Warren, Elizabeth Madox Roberts also possesses a vital link to succeeding generations of female authors such as Kate Chopin and Toni Morrison. A fascinating character, Roberts took the unprecedented step of enrolling at University of Chicago at the age of thirty-six in 1917, pursuing her ambition for a college education and her love of literature.
