Man As He Is: A Novel in Four Volumes
Bage's novels were chiefly intended to inculcate certain political and philosophical opinions. He was deeply impressed by the French revolution, and the effects of the new principles are clearly traceable in his works. Considered altogether apart from their moral and social bearings, the novels of Bage display an unquestionable power in drawing and developing character, while their style is always entertaining and frequently incisive. This title is considered his best work.
