Thomas Wolfe
FameRank: 4

"Thomas Clayton Wolfe" was a major American novelist of the early twentieth century.

Wolfe wrote four lengthy novels, plus many short stories, dramatic works and novellas. He is known for mixing highly original, poetic, rhapsodic, and impressionistic prose with autobiographical writing. His books, written and published from the 1920s to the 1940s, vividly reflect on American culture and mores of the period, albeit filtered through Wolfe's sensitive, sophisticated and hyper-analytical perspective. He became very famous during his own lifetime.

After Wolfe’s death, his contemporary William Faulkner said that Wolfe may have had the best talent of their generation.{{cite web
