GLADIATOR, the author's third published novel was, in fact, a re-write of "Titan," an allegorical fantasy which Knopf is subject to its being completely re-written. However, Wylie wanted his first published novel to be a serious realistic work which would make a good impression on the critics, so he wrote and published HEAVY LADEN (1928) and BABES AND SUCKLINGS (1929), before reluctantly re-writing GLADIATOR. Published in March 1930, GLADIATOR sold a mere 2568 copies and Wylie terminated his contract with Knopf on the convenient grounds that the novel had not been given adequate promotion.
