The Game as It Is Played comprises the best of Donald Pizer's essays on Theodore Dreiser. Pizer, one of Dreiser's principal critics over the past forty years, is especially concerned in establishing the distinctive nature and quality of Dreiser's naturalism in many of these essays. From one of Dreiser's earliest short stories to his acknowledged masterpiece, An American Tragedy , Pizer demonstrates that in Dreiser's hands naturalism is not the blunt instrument it is usually assumed to be but rather a powerful tool for the rendering of a complex view of the human condition. In addition, the essays explore several of the more controversial areas of Dreiser scholarship, including his late conversion to communism, his anti-Semitism, and the text of Sister Carrie .
