He wrote several early stories, but it was not until he published Illumination (1896), better known by its American title, The Damnation of Theron Ware, that his remarkable gifts as a novelist were fully realized. The Market Place is a frightening yet fascinating novel. Contemporary with the Horatio Alger story it transforms the American myth into a study of the drive toward success by illuminating its moral simplicity. .The protagonist was a towering and menacing figure who rises out of the ruins of the aristocratic system that was then collapsing, or had collapsed.
