ABSTRACT
This article focuses on Pulitzer Prize winner U.S. playwright and writer Thornton Wilder, who was born in Madison, Wisconsin in 1897. He wrote many famous novels and plays and won numerous literary awards for his work. He was 30 years-old when he wrote "The Bridge," a novel which was so popular that he made enough money to quit his job as a French teacher, build a house and become a full-time writer. Some of his works include "The Bridge of San Luis Rey," "The Ides of March" and "The Matchmaker."
