Han er kendt for sin kritik af borgerskabet og gør grin med deres opførsel og dobbeltmoral. I 1892 var han fænslet i 14 dage da han havde skrevet en novelle med utilstedelige ord.
Hans satire og kyniske humor kom tydeligt til udtryk i romanerne Livsens Ondskab (1899), Slægten (1898), Knagsted (1902) og Pastor Sørensen og Co. (1913).
