Rebell is often dismissed as a failed author of pornography, remembered for only one title, Les nuits chaudes du Cap Français (1902),[5] which won the Prix Nocturne in 1966. He was also a poet, whose Les Chants de la pluie et du soleil, dedicated to his friend René Boylesve, inspired André Gide in Les Nourritures Terrestres. He was also known as a polemicist of royalty because of his Union des trois aristocraties (1894), which treated the three aristocracies based on family name, money, and talent.
