This paper examines and reviews the imagery in Sherwood Anderson's short story "Hands," which offers a glimpse of small town life in America's Midwest. The writer of this also paper discusses and details the plot of the novel and the main character Wing Biddlebaum, who's described by Anderson as a poor little man, beaten, pounded and frightened by the world.

From the Paper:

"One can tell from the imagery beginning with the decaying porch, that there was not much use fixing the place up. It was home, for whatever it looked like, to this nervous little bald man. Winesburg surely had, as most small Midwestern towns did, a sort of pecking order. There were the affluent, with fertile fields, or grain and feed stores, bankers and other businessmen who foreclosed loans and sold over-priced goods to their regular customers, while winning them over with the smiles."
