The Secret Power | Gothic Literature.

The passage of time has rendered Marie Corelli’s works to the cemetery of forgotten books but during her lifetime she was one of the most widely read authors in the land. From the publication of her first novel, A Romance of Two Worlds, in 1886 to the end of World War I she sold more books than household names such as Arthur Conan Doyle, H. G. Wells and Rudyard Kipling
