The Time of Man

A Novel

Considered her finest work and an American classic, Roberts's novel traces the coming of age of Ellen Chesser, the daughter of a poor itinerant farmer. Against all privations and the forces that would subdue her, Ellen is sustained by a sense of wonder and by an awareness of her own being. Reduced to the bare elements of life, her world becomes a ceremony of daily duties that bind her to the natural world and her family. The Time of Man stands as a beautifully written tribute to the human spirit.

Reviews

"This is a book that embraces life . . . . [I]t is written in a prose at once lucid and arresting, rhythmical, fresh in phrasing and construction, giving always the effect of effortless arrangement."—New York Times

"One of the most authentic and moving depictions of a woman's identity and experience I have ever read. . . . I felt the same shock of recognition and revelation upon reading The Time of Man that I did when I read Their Eyes Were Watching God."—Appalachian Journal

"Originally published in 1926, this re-released epic novel of Americana is now considered a classic."—Kentucky Living

"Original, powerful, and, without ever verging upon sentimentality, tender."—Saturday Review of Literature
