Most widely held works by M. E Braddon
Lady Audley's secret by M. E Braddon ( Book )
169 editions published between 1800 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 3,291 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
Aurora Floyd by M. E Braddon ( Book )
113 editions published between 1863 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 1,677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Like Lady Audley, Aurora is a beautiful young woman bigamously married and threatened with exposure by a blackmailer. But in Aurora Floyd, and in many of the novels written in imitation of it, bigamy is little more than a euphemism, a device to enable the heroine, and vicariously the reader, to enjoy the forbidden sweets of adultery without adulterous intentions. Passionate, sometimes violent, Aurora does succeed in enjoying them, her desires scarcely chastened by her disastrous first marriage. She represents a challenge to the mid-Victorian sexual code, and particularly to the feminine ideal of simpering, angelic young ladyhood. P.D. Edward's introduction evaluates the novel's leading place among 'bigamy-novels' and Braddon's treatment of the power struggle between the sexes, as well as considering the similarities between the author and her heroine
The doctor's wife by M. E Braddon ( Book )
61 editions published between 1860 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Flaubert's Madame Bovary is regarded as a masterpiece of nineteenth-century literature. However, that novel hinges on a singularly unsympathetic portrayal of the title character. In this innovative novel, author Mary Elizabeth Braddon gives Mme Bovary a bully pulpit of her own, presenting the same story from the doctor's wife's perspective
