Publisher's Summary

The Titan is the second volume in what the author called his "trilogy of desire," featuring the character of Frank Cowperwood, a powerful, irresistibly compelling man driven by his own need for power, beautiful women, and social prestige.

Having married his former mistress, Aileen Butler, and moved to Chicago, Cowperwood almost succeeds in his dream of establishing a monopoly of all public utilities. Dissatisfaction with Aileen leads him, however, to a series of affairs with other women. When the Chicago citizenry frustrates his financial schemes, he departs for Europe with Berenice Fleming, the lovely daughter of the madam of a Louisville brothel.

At last, Cowperwood experiences "the pathos of the discovery that even giants are but pygmies, and that an ultimate balance must be struck".

    What disappointed you about The Titan?

    TOO MUCH TIME SPENT ON TALKING ABOUT BUSINESS DEALS.


    What could Theodore Dreiser have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    SPENT MOST OF THE BOOK TALKING ABOUT HIS PERSONAL LIFE.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    THE NARATOR WAS NOT BAD. BUT HE WAS NOT GOOD EITHER. HE ADDED NO EMOTION TO THE STORY.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Titan?

    MOST OF THE BUSINESS DEAL SCENES. THEY BORED ME.


    Any additional comments?

    I HAVE READ TWO OTHER BOOKS BY DREISER. THEY WERE VERY GOOD. THIS ONE WAS A DISAPPOINTMENT. I WON'T WASTE MONEY ON THE FINANCIER AS I BET IT WILL BE SIMILAR TO TITAN IN DISCUSSING BUSINESS DEALS.
