Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
(It is almost impossible to find these three novels together. The Kindle editions substitute "The Genius" for "The Stoic," so you never finish the trilogy. I wound up with this increasingly rare old hardcover, but for carrying around I found myself reading the first two books on Kindle and "The Stoic" in an old paperback.) This is a fictionalized biography of Yerkes, who funded the telescope named for him, and built the transportation system of Chicago. But in actuality the hero is Dreiser, fantasizing about himself as a man with a rare taste for beauty and great personal charm and power. "The Genius," so often mistakenly stuck at the end of the trilogy, is actually about a very similar character, Dreiser's imagined self, this time as a great painter as well as a commercial genius. In the trilogy, as in "The Genius" and in his more famous books, Dreiser's writing is rather plodding. Here, his detailed, heavily researched discussions of matters of finance can be heavy going. Just the same, the three books of the trilogy are full of interest and hold the reader. "The Financier," the first novel in the trilogy, is by far the finest of the three, but all are worthwhile. Among their attractions, setting to one side the hero's various affairs with younger women, are their depiction of the America that was, and that was changing rapidly. Dreiser has a way of building his characters so that there are some moments in the books when you particularly feel his power. When the wife Yerkes doesn't love dies, Yerkes cries, and I confess I cried too. "An American Tragedy" and "Sister Carrie" and "Jennie Gerhardt" are all greater books, but they are not the only measures of Dreiser's greatness.
