A talk by Dr Bob Bearman
Mary Mackay (1 May 1855 – 21 April 1924), known by her pseudonym Marie Corelli, was an English novelist.
She enjoyed a period of great literary success from the publication of her first novel in 1886 until World War I. Sales of Corelli’s novels exceeded the combined sales of popular contemporaries, including Arthur Conan Doyle, H. G. Wells, and Rudyard Kipling, although critics often derided her work as “the favourite of the common multitude”.
