Chapter

Abstract

Mary Ward’s three-volume novel, Marcella, was first published in 1894, and became one of the most successful of her social reform novels but it was not well-received by everyone. Undeterred by the criticism it received, Mary wrote a sequel, Sir George Tressady, which was serialised in Century Magazine before publication as a novel in 1896.
