Naturalism influenced Theodore Dreiser, a novelist and writer. He composed "My Brother Paul" as a homage to his brother Paul. In 1901, he suffered from family troubles, which led to despair, and he was healed by Paul, a well-known songwriter. The poem is considered one of the best examples of Naturalism.
Paul was born on August 4th, 1871 in Indiana. He had two sisters named Carrie and Louise. His parents were George Washington Dreiser and Mary Ann Moore. He married Anna Elizabeth Smith on April 23rd, 1896 in St. Louis, Missouri. She was born on August 2nd, 1874 in Pennsylvania. They had three children: Ethel May, Robert Paul, and Theodore James. After earning a degree in journalism from Columbia University in New York City, he became an editor at the Chicago Daily News and later worked at the Philadelphia Inquirer. He died on September 16th, 1945 in Jersey City, New Jersey after a long illness at the age of 70.
Theodore Dreiser was born on October 24th, 1871 in Ohio. He had two siblings named Carrie and Louise. His father was a German immigrant farmer who suffered from depression. His mother was American. When Dreiser was only eight years old, his father committed suicide. This unfortunate event caused him to feel insecure about his future. He wanted to be a famous author since he was a child.
He's not Paul's birth-brother since Paul would have stated more about him and we'd find him named elsewhere in Paul's writings if he was. We know Paul had a sister and a nephew, but no mention of a brother is made.
Rufus did serve as an ambassador for Christ during the late 50s/early 60s and was even sent to Jerusalem with Luke on an important mission, but that wasn't until many years after Paul had been dead for almost 10 years now. If Paul had lived longer than he did, perhaps Rufus would have become a prominent figure in the early church too, but since we don't read about him again after this trip, it seems likely that he died soon after returning from his mission.
In addition, there are some differences in how some historians have tried to connect various people through DNA testing. One website claims that someone who has tested positive for being related to Paul also has tested positive for being related to Rufus. However, other researchers have pointed out problems with this evidence since both men were married and had children. They suggest instead that they believe Rufus to be the son of Paul's mother's first husband who she divorced before marrying Felix.
Dreiser was a socialist who published numerous nonfiction works about politics. Dreiser Looks at Russia (1928), the outcome of his tour to the Soviet Union in 1927, as well as two works giving a critical viewpoint on capitalist America, Tragic America (1931) and America Is Worth Saving (1932), were published (1941). His last book was An American Diary (1942).
In addition to his nonfiction, Dreiser wrote three novels: The Financier (1913), which was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize; Sister Carrie (1920), which became a classic of social realism; and An American Dream (1926).
Dreiser was born on August 8, 1871 in New York City into a wealthy family. His parents were German immigrants who owned a cotton business. When he was eight years old, the family moved to Chicago where his father bought a new store. There he met Ellen Walker, who worked with him in the store. They fell in love and got married when Dreiser was 21 years old. However, due to financial problems, they had to divorce. After losing his job, Dreiser went back to Chicago but failed to make any more money so he decided to travel west. While traveling across country, he met other writers and artists who encouraged him to write.
When he returned home, he started writing again but this time about his experiences while traveling.
He began writing at night and eventually went to a cabin in northern Minnesota to do so. After years of struggle, Paulsen returned to what he knew best: tales based on his own experiences. Paulsen frequently has his heroes come from difficult families, similar to his own. He also likes to focus on the difficulty of learning languages, especially foreign languages like German or French.
His novels are set in the Midwest after the American Civil War. Many of his characters are unemployed until they find work as farmers or miners. Some become hunters or trappers instead. A few even join the army and fight in the war between the States.
After the war ends, many people move to the cities looking for better jobs. This is why you will often find unemployed people living with their relatives or friends rather than making their own home.
Paulsen always makes sure that his readers can relate to his characters. This way, they will feel like they are experiencing something real. Unfortunately, this means that some people think that all writers are like Paulsen, which isn't true at all!
Some writers may have other hobbies besides writing, while others may even have multiple careers all at once. The only thing that matters is that they keep writing!
As for Paulsen, he currently lives in South Dakota with his wife and two children.
