5-0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece
This is a true work of a master, as original as it comes. The subject she writes about is so complex but she does it in a very simple way. The question is simple, as humans would we make a different chance from the devil, if we were in the same position, and why does the devil do what it does.

5-0 out of 5 stars True Romance in the literary sense
I first heard of (or actually first saw the name of) Marie Corelli in The Books of My Life by Henry Miller.I was curious so I ordered The Sorrows of Satan: Or the Strange Experience of One Geoffrey Tempest, Millionaire. Once again, Mr Millers judgment has proven impeccable.I will refrain fromgoing off on a tangent about all the literature I have explored throughHenry Millers reccommendation. (The Books of My Life sits on my headboard) This is supposed to be a review of Ms. Corellis book.

This is asensational book.I had a difficult time putting it down.Readers willcome to care for the fate of one Geoffrey Tempest even though he has damnedhimself through his own choice and ignorance.There is a certain naivityin his corruption.Prince Rimanez leads him down the path of temptationwith great sorrow.Casting Satan as a sympathetic character may not appealto Christian fundamentalists but it is a great twist.(It has been done abit in Hollywood but this predates the movies.)The devil may truly seekredemption.One gets the sense that Corelli has empathy even for thedevil. He is, after all, only doing what he must do.It is his plight tolead men into temptation.Geoffrey Tempest is the one who has a choice. He chooses the easy path and ultimately he pays the price.One iscertainly glad that he does escape from Prince Rimanez grip at the end. The angel Mavis Clare is able to save him.He is able to redeem himselfbefore the final plunge.He turns back to God and is given a secondchance.

I am not going to enter into the debate over whether or notMavis Clare is supposed to be symbolic of Marie Corelli herself but I thinkthe book is clearly a shot at the critics of the time who constantlyostracized Corelli in spite her phenomenal sales.This book will stimulatereaders on both an emotional and spiritual level. I anxiously await readingother books by Marie Corelli.My literary debt to Henry Miller takesanother grand leap.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great forgotten melodrama
It was the best-selling novel of the nineteenth century and with its hypnotic descriptions and delicious dramatic irony; it's easy to see why.This Faustian tale of a man's corruption by wealth, society and his own vanity under the guidance of a devilish temptor while common enough has a unique twist in that the devil himself hates his job of temptation as it divides him from heaven.The reader can delight in the double meanings of the novel, knowing what the hero cannot see in his "benefactor".

The book is melodramatic, and at times longwinded, and sadly occassionally whiny, but it is strangely absorbing even when it descends into silliness, and the characters can be understood and to some extent sympathized with.It is not one of the great works, but it is a work of great conception. ...

Editorial Review

Product Description
Marie Corelli (1855-1924) was the most popular novelist of the turn of the century, outselling Hall Caine, Mrs. Humphry Ward, H. G. Wells, and Arthur Conan Doyle by the thousands. For thirty years she was ridiculed by reviewers and the literary elite--Edmund Gosse dismissed her as "that little milliner"--but these opinions had no impact on her mass appeal. In 1895, with The Sorrows of Satan, she broke all previous publishing records, and by 1906 a Corelli novel sold 100,000 copies a year.

Idol of Suburbia returns Marie Corelli to conversations about the late-Victorian and Edwardian literary world. As Annette R. Federico points out, Corelli's participation in the cultural life of her time was highly creative, combative, and contradictory. Her ongoing war with highbrow literary critics and her management of her own image illuminate continuing debates about literary value, class hegemony, and gender politics at the fin de sicle.

In examining Corelli's celebrity and her protean literary talents in the context of a changing book market, Federico reveals the profusion of the late-Victorian literary imagination. She analyzes Corelli's participation in literary decadence, feminism, and New Woman fiction, and she discusses how seriously we should take her aesthetic and its literary influence. Federico asks why heterosexual love seems pathological in so many of Corelli's novels and assesses the validity of biographical and psychoanalytic explanations of her celibacy and her lifelong companionship with another woman.

Idol of Suburbia is the first full-length study to address these questions and to set Corelli within the framework of literary history and contemporary critical theory. ... Read more
