Abstract: 
Chicago's Growth in sixty years from frontier outpost to the second largest city in America embodied for writers and artists the sudden and even violent transition to what we call the modern period. Among the themes in Smith's study are the place of art int he new city, the representation of women trying to succeed on the city's "male" terms, and the conception of the businessman as artist. *
