The Stoic

(The third book in the Trilogy of Desire series)
A novel by

Dreiser, Theodore. The Stoic. Garden City, New York, Doubleday & Company, 1947. 15 cm x 22 cm. 310 pages. Original hardcover with original dustjacket in protective Mylar. Good condition with some signs of external wear. Small tears on dustjacket. Theodore Herman Albert Dreiser was an American novelist and journalist. He pioneered the naturalist school and is known for portraying characters whose value lies not in their moral code, but in their persistence against all obstacles, and literary situations that more closely resemble studies of nature than tales of choice and agency. (Goodreads) Frank Cowperwood, still married to his estranged wife Aileen, lives with Berenice. He decides to move to London, England, where he intends to take over and develop the underground railway system. Berenice becomes close to Earl Stane, while Frank has an affair with Lorna Maris, a relative of his. Meanwhile, he tries to fix Aileen up with Tollifer, but she becomes enraged when she finds out it was a ruse. Finally, Cowperwood dies of Bright's disease. His inheritance is squandered in lawsuits. Aileen dies shortly after. Berenice travels to India, where she is moved by poverty. Back in the United States, she realises there is poverty there too, and decides to set up a hospital for the poor, as Cowperwood intended. (Wikipedia)
