Though he later gained widespread acclaim as a pioneering writer of fantasy fiction, James Branch Cabell's early novels are largely realistic and dryly humorous in tone.

American author James Branch Cabell developed into a well-known fantasy writer later in his literary career, but his early novels focused on documenting (and slyly commenting upon) the lives of the American aristocracy in the early twentieth century.

Gallantry : dizain des fêtes galantes by James Branch Cabell( Book )

31 editions published between 1906 and 2010 in English and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American writer James Branch Cabell carved out a literary niche of his own with a body of work that combines fantasy, humor, and allegory. The novel Gallantry succeeds marvelously on all three levels. In terms of plot, it's a rollicking action-adventure quest story that fans of fiction set in the medieval era will relish. Thematically, it's a clever send-up of the very notion of gallantry and all of the harm wrought by this complex social code
