Résumé Par l’analyse des conduites excentriques des quatre nouvelles femmes dans Winesburg, Ohio ainsi que leurs raisons, l’article indique que les excentriques possèdent en fait un monde spirituel beau et riche, et que, en tant que femmes, elles sont liées de plus par le sexisme et leurs solitude et désespoir sont beaucoup plus profonds que ceux des hommes excentriques.
Mot clés : Winesburg, Ohio, les nouvelles femmes, la solitude
