Overview

A second helping from the 'Queen of Sensation' and her dark imaginings



Lovers of the Victorian fiction of Wilkie Collins know that to discover his female counterpart they need look no further than the works of Mary Elizabeth Braddon. She was a prolific author of the kind of dark melodrama much loved by her contemporary audience and her most renowned work, 'Lady Audley's Secret,' has been often dramatised, filmed and, indeed, has never been out of print from the time of its original publication. Never was the accolade, 'The Queen of Sensation' so well deserved as it was by her. It is not unusual that a writer who produced so much material-and much of that with a flavour of the Gothic-should also turn her talents to the genre of supernatural and strange fiction, since there was much precedent for it among her literary peers and much appetite for it among the reading public. So it is, perhaps, unsurprising that this Leonaur collection of Mary Elizabeth Braddon's forays into the other worldly and bizarre runs to four substantial, satisfying volumes.

In this second volume the principal work is the novel, 'The Conflict'. A duel to the death is generally recognised as being a conclusive end to the matter-but the victor here discovers that that may not always be true!.This novel was originally published in two volumes-both of which are included in this special Leonaur edition. Also here are the novelettes 'At Chrighton Abbey' and 'Dr. Carrick' and the short story 'Her Last Appearance.'

This collection is available in soft cover and hardcover with dustjacket. Leonaur hardcovers are cloth bound with head and tail bands and gold foil embossed spines.
