Braddon, Mary Elizabeth: Lady Audley's Secret. v1. 09 June 07

Murder! Mayhem! Madness!

Mary E. Braddon was a writer who wrote a number of Victorian thrillers.

Here's some quotes:

"['Lady Audley's Secret'] is full of action that you might find in any potboilers, shocking for the comtemporary people, which includes: murder, arson, secret passage, blackmail, you name it. But the way Braddon handles them is always steady and well-controlled, and at some places they look unexpectedly modern, reading like a movie script, anticipating the cinematic treatment in the early 20th century…Her book has many flaws, surely, but should be never called dull."

And another one:
"It's really kind of trashy, falling into the sensational genre, but don't let that deter you - it'll keep you up at night AND provide the romantic bygone otherness of say, a Jane Austen novel. It's also an interesting window into Victorian femininity, undermining as it does the ideal of the passive angel in the house, and replacing her with a kind of femme fatale anti-heroine…A really good read."

I hope you enjoy it.
