This 1915 novel is set in Virginia in the waning years of the nineteenth century. A marriage between an aristocratic Southern gentleman and the spoiled daughter of a businessman affords Cabell the opportunity, with lapidary grace and gently devastating irony, of skewering the chivalric illusions of the Old South.
