Title page of the Tauchnitz edition, published the same year as the first London edition.

THE ANSWER TO yesterday’s literary puzzle: East Lynne, by Mrs. Henry Wood, one of the most popular novels of the nineteenth century.

The book is very easy to find on line, though ambitious graduate students will be disappointed to learn that neither the word “bourgeois” nor the word “masculinity” may be found anywhere in the novel.

Project Gutenberg ebook.

  3. Poor Flopsy…

  4. Dr. Boli.
