Recommended for: People who think they like D.H. Lawrence
"Twelve Men" is 12 unrelated character sketches that are supposed to be Dreiser's ideal man, and ultimately, a portrait of himself. Which is to say generous, pious and totally boring. The men in these stories are all painted to be disciple-like do-gooders. Were all people like this in 1909? There were a few good observations on people. The only interesting sketch was of the character who, seeming human at all, had a temper and was unforgiving.
