One of the bestselling late Victorian authors, the English novelist Ouida, pseudonym of Maria Louise Ramé, is known for her extravagant melodramatic romances of fashionable life. Her novels were considered controversial, offering a marked contrast to the moralising prose of early Victorian literature. Ouida penned gripping sensational novels, proto-adventure stories and important critiques on contemporary society. This comprehensive eBook presents Ouida’s collected works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts appearing in digital print for the first time, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
