Lady Audley's secret by M. E Braddon( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lady Audley's Secret (1862) was one of the most widely read novels in the Victorian period. It exemplifies "sensation fiction" in featuring a beautiful criminal heroine, an amateur detective, blackmail, arson, violence, and plenty of suspenseful action. To its contemporary readers, it also offered the thrill of uncovering blackmail and criminal violence within the homes of the upper class. The novel makes trenchant critiques of Victorian gender roles and social stereotypes, and it creates significant sympathy for the heroine, despite her criminal acts, as she suffers from the injustices of the "marriage market" and rebels against them." "This Broadview edition includes a critical introduction and a broad selection of primary source material, including reproduction of the twenty-two woodcut illustrations from the London Journal serialization of the novel, two Victorian dramatizations of the work, satirical commentaries, and contemporary reviews."--Jacket
