Sherwood Anderson wrote short stories in a very realistic tradition, often focussing on the poor and helpless. In this tale, he introduces us to an old woman who, all her life, has been the victim of poverty and unkindness. She is invisible, living outside her community, expecting nothing and getting only that (3,520 words).
