Editorial Review

Product Description
This book is the first full-length biographical and critical study of the American Realist author Harold Frederic (1856-1898). As London correspondent for the New York Times and the author of nine novels, Frederic was internationally known at the time of his death; today he is remembered mainly for his novel The Damnation of Theron Ware (1896). Drawing on archival and published material not available to earlier writers on Frederic, Myers paints a fascinating portrait of the man and his times as an expatriate in London in the 1890s, his friendship with James, Crane, Wells, and their circle, and the scandal surrounding his death at the age of 42. ...

Editorial Review

Product Description
Published in 1896, The Damnation of Theron Ware or Illumination is a profound psychological portrait of the spiritual undoing of a guileless Methodist minister who is taken in by a rural townspeople’s various progressive ideas, from liberalism to bohemianism, only to be spurned by them for being too conventional. Described by Everett Carter as “among the four or five best novels written by an American during the nineteenth century,” the novel, as Joyce Carol Oates writes in her Introduction, has “shrewd, disturbing insights into the human pysche.”

This Modern Library Paperback Classic is set from the text of the authoritative Harold Frederic Edition. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful find
I'm a lousy writer, so a positive review is difficult for me to write-- it is always easier to write a negative review, but I'll do my best because I feel like this work is ridiculously neglected. Besides being a fascinating document of social and intellectual trends in mid to late 19th century America, it is a wonderful study of an individual who does not comprehend the limits of his own intellect. Ultimately, it is about self delusion. The theme is relevant today.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great novel, terrible printing
By all means read the book, but this "Quill Pen Classics" edition is a glorified print-out. As soon as I opened the cover the two front pages tore away from their binding, and within a day of reading it the cover fell off, with more pages threatening to go. Moreover, the type is bad and faded in parts. Better to find a used Penguin or Modern Library edition. I wish I had.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Disturbing Book - But Excellent
I won't bother repeating the plot line or lift any of the criticism found in the introduction, instead I will offer my thoughts on this amazing book.

1. It is an excellent picture of what religion may have really been like in the 1880s in upstate New York.I especially enjoyed the revelation that the barnstormer preachers didn't really believe in the religion, but rather did preached fire and brimstone because that was what they were good at and needed a gig.I am sure that is how it has been for centuries in any religion, I never considered that before.

2. What is most amazing to me is that Theron Ware was convinced he was making good decisions as he transformed himself, that he was improving himself by associating with intelligent interesting people, rather than the boring, uneducated people of his own religion.Yet, though he thought he was improving, in the eyes of those he wanted most to like him, he was devolving into a terrible person.This makes me wonder, I suppose, when we make decisions in life to pursue some course of action, or to be some sort of way, it doesn't necessarily make us a better person, although at the time we may think it might.

3. I didn't think the book was that clear on why the Catholics thought little of him. Granted they didn't like him talking bad about his own folks, still, that does not make a person unlikeable.To me this was confusing and perhaps poorly presented, but perhaps that is how life is.

4. It seems that Theron would have remained most likable and respectable if he would have kept to his own people and not dabbled with these "out of the box" type thoughts.But how can a man who sees the emptiness and backwardness of his co-religionists remain?That is what I don't understand.

5. Theron thought he was very clever, when actually he was somewhat uneducated, and looked down upon by those who were.Reminds me of myself.Whenever you start thinking you know something, remember Theron Ware.

6. Celia reminds me of some hard core left wing artist types I went to college with.It is hard for me to believe that people like that existed in the US in the 1880s.I have had to revise my understanding of history somewhat.

Overall, this is a thought-provoking book about life in general and how best to conduct it, but it doesn't offer any answers, but some difficult questions that I tried to present above.

Theron made some mistakes, but before we condemn him, I think it would be best to put yourself in his shoes and ask yourself, what would you have done differently? Probably nothing, and you would have ended up in the same place he did.

I have a version with an introduction by Everett Carter.If you have that introduction, don't bother reading it before and certainly not after.It is worthless unless you are a serious literature student.

3-0 out of 5 stars Difficult to get through
This book was good although extremely hard to read and get through.I only finished it because it was for book club.I would not recommend this classic.

5-0 out of 5 stars Timeless classic
Illumination (1896) has been an underground classic among serious writers and readers since its publication. Although it sold well in its day, it was largely lost to mainstream attention for most of the 20th century. Only in the 1980s did it first start appearing in school settings with the first critical edition by Nebraska Press (and Penguin Press editions around the same time). It has been called an "American classic" by more than one critic and writer.

First, an explanation of the odd title. Frederic intended the title to be simply "Illumination", which it was indeed published as in England, but due to some mis-communication at his (soon to be bankrupt) American publishers - a working draft had the internal working name of "damnation" - it was mistakingly published as "The Damnation of Theron Ware". Later publishers in the 1930s then combined the two into the full title "The Damnation of Theron Ware, Or, Illumination".

This is an important novel and can be critically approached from a number of perspectives. Probably most important and timeless (c.f. Richard Dawkins "The God Delusion" (2006)) is Theron Ware's "Illumination" about truth in religion. Is the value of religion based on the belief in a real God, or just a belief in a god that may not even exist - the existence of which doesn't matter - the value in religion comes from _pretending_ to believe. It is unclear in the end if Sister Soulsby, Forbes and others truly believe, or just pretend to believe, and if it even matters.

The narrative technique of writing from Theron's perspective, hearing in the first person about his own "Illumination" and personal growth (a positive healthy thing it seems to him) - which is then re-played at the end of the novel from other peoples perspective, is very powerful and well crafted. It really makes the reader examine times in their own lives when they thought they were on the right and true path. It has a certain Rashomon theme of subjectivity and what is the truth of events from multiple perspectives. ... Read more
