The Titan is a novel by Theodore Dreiser, completed in 1914 as a sequel to his 1912 novel The Financier.[1] Both books were originally a single manuscript, but the narrative's length required splitting it into two separate novels.[2] Dreiser's manuscript of The Titan was rejected by Harper & Brothers, publisher of The Financier, due to its uncompromising realism; John Lane published the book in 1914.[3] The Titan is the second part of Dreiser's Trilogy of Desire, a saga of ruthless businessman Frank Cowperwood (modeled after real-life streetcar tycoon Charles Yerkes). The third part of the trilogy, The Stoic, was Dreiser's final novel, published in 1947 after his death.
