Theodore Dreiser
The Stoic
New York: Doubleday & Company, 1947
The Stoic is the story of Frank Cowperwood's boldest venture, the building of the London subway system. Together with The Financier and The Titan, it forms parts of Dreiser's trilogy of the nineteenth-century American dream of material power. Dreiser died before he could revise the conclusion, about which he had deep reservations; it was left to his widow Helen, among others, to re-draft and edit the final published version.
