East Lynne

Editorial Reviews

Lyn Pykett University of Wales
"This is a splendid edition. Its introduction is an authoritative and up to date guide to the novel and its context. A generous and judicious selection of contemporary reviews of East Lynne and the sensation novel further amplify the context, and provide an excellent resource for students."
Elisabeth Rose Gruner University of Richmond
"In his introduction, Andrew Maunder suggests that East Lynne may be 'one of the most famous unread works in the English language.' This immensely readable and teachable edition should help to preserve its fame while increasing its readership. Maunder locates the novel in its various contexts—social, historical, and literary—focusing especially on the material conditions of the novel's publication, and the various "woman questions" of the middle nineteenth century. The supplemental materials are thorough and well-chosen, and for the selections from T. A. Palmer's theatrical adaptation alone, the Broadview edition would be my choice for teaching."

Ellen Wood (1814 - 1887) was better known as Mrs. Henry Wood. She is perhaps remembered most for her 1861 novel East Lynne but many of her books became international best-sellers, being widely received in the United States and surpassing Charles Dickens' fame in Australia.

Women didn't always have it as comfortable as they do now. East Lynne is a Victorian tragedy with all the span of emotions the Victorians can muster. Should appeal to a wide range of readers.

If you love the great stories of love and intrigue written by Charles Dickens and Jane Austen, you'll love this book. I could not put it down!
