Marie Corelli Great British Novelist Hand Written Signed 4 Page Letter
FOUR PAGE LETTER HAND WRITTEN AND SIGNED BY………… Mary Mackay (1 May 1855 21 April 1924), known by her pseudonym Marie Corelli. , was an English novelist. From the appearance of her first novel A Romance of Two Worlds. In 1886, she became the bestselling fiction-writer in England. Her works largely concerned with Christianity, reincarnation, astral projection and mysticism. Yet despite her many distinguished patrons, she was often ridiculed by critics. Corelli lived her later years in Stratford-upon-Avon. Whose historic buildings she fought hard to preserve. Mary Mackay was born in London to Elizabeth Mills, a servant of the Scottish poet and songwriter Dr Charles Mackay. In 1866, eleven-year-old Mary was sent to a Parisian convent. To further her education. Mackay began her career as a musician, giving piano recitals and adopting the name Marie Corelli for her billing. Eventually she turned to writing and published her first novel, A Romance of Two Worlds. In her time, she was the most widely read author of fiction. Her works were collected by Winston Churchill. And members of the British Royal Family. Yet although sales of Corelli’s novels exceeded the combined sales of popular contemporaries, including Arthur Conan Doyle. Critics often derided her work as “the favourite of the common multitude”. She faced criticism from the literary elite for her allegedly melodramatic writing. Called her a woman of deplorable talent who imagined that she was a genius, and was accepted as a genius by a public to whose commonplace sentimentalities and prejudices she gave a glamorous setting. Represented her as combining the imagination of a Poe. With the style of an Ouida. And the mentality of a nursemaid. A recurring theme in Corelli’s books is her attempt to reconcile Christianity with reincarnation. And other mystical ideas. She was associated at some point with the Fraternitas Rosae Crucis. And her books were a part of the foundation of today’s corpus of esoteric. Her portrait was painted by Helen Donald-Smith. Corelli famously had little time for the press. In 1902 she wrote to the editor of The Gentlewoman. To complain that her name had been left out of a list of the guests in the Royal Enclosure at the Braemar. Saying she suspected this had been done intentionally. The editor replied that her name had indeed been left out intentionally, because of her own stated contempt for the press and for the snobbery of those wishing to appear in “news puffs” of society events. Both letters were published in full in the next issue. The writer also gained some fame after her letter on the curse of the Pharaohs. To New York World. Corelli claimed that she had warned George Herbert, 5th Earl of Carnarvon. One of the finders of the tomb of Tutankhamun. About the “dire punishment” likely to occur to those who rifle Egyptian tombs, claiming to cite an ancient book that indicated that poisons had been left after burials. Corelli spent her final years in Stratford-upon-Avon. Novelist Barbara Comyns Carr. Mentions Corelli’s guest appearance at an exhibition of Anglo-Saxon items found at Bidford-on-Avon. Corelli’s eccentricity became well known. She would boat on the Avon. Complete with a gondolier. Whom she had brought over from Venice. Who had a deep dislike of Corelli, describes visiting her in Stratford and how the meeting changed his perception. For over forty years, Corelli lived with her companion, Bertha Vyver. To whom she left everything when she died. She did not identify herself as a lesbian. But several biographers and critics have noted the frequent erotic descriptions of female beauty. That appear in her novels, although they are expressed by men. Corelli was known to have expressed a genuine passion for the artist Arthur Severn, to whom she wrote daily letters from 1906 to 1917. Severn was the son of Joseph Severn. And close friend of John Ruskin. In 1910, she and Severn collaborated on The Devil’s Motor , with Severn providing illustrations for Corelli’s story. Her love for the long-married painter, her only known romantic attachment to a man, remained unrequited; in fact Severn often belittled Corelli’s success. During the First World War. Corelli’s personal reputation suffered when she was convicted of food hoarding. She died in Stratford and is buried there in the Evesham Road cemetery. Later Bertha van der Vyver. Was buried alongside her. Corelli is generally accepted to have been the inspiration for at least two of E. S characters in his Lucia series. Of six novels and a short story. The main character, Emmeline “Lucia” Lucas, is a vain and snobbish woman of the upper middle class with an obsessive desire to be the leading light of her community, to associate with the nobility, and to see her name reported in the social columns, coupled with a comical pretension to education and musical talent, neither of which she possesses. She also pretends to be able to speak Italian, something Corelli was known to have done. Miss Susan Leg is a highly successful writer of pulp romances under the pseudonym Rudolph da Vinci. Benson’s “Secret Lives” a famous novelist Susan Leg, writes a book in which the heroine is another writer – Serena Lomond. This character is meant to be very similar to Susan herself, but in fact Serena Lomond is the spit of Mavis Clare in Marie Corelli’s “The Sorrows of Satan”. The character makes her appearance in Benson’s work a few years after Marie Corelli’s death in 1924. A modern critic has written that Corelli was probably also the inspiration for “Rita’s” Eliza Humphreys. S main character in Diana of the Ephesians , which was published a year before E. Benson’s first Lucia novel, and had been rejected by Hutchinson, which later published the “Lucia” Lucas novels. In Chapter III of Bruce Marshall. S The World, the Flesh and Father Smith. The protagonist a Catholic priest is in hospital, recovering from a wound. A nurse gives him a copy of Marie Corelli’s Temporal Power , with the hope that the book would convert him to Protestantism. However, Father Smith finds the book “stupid and flamboyant”, puts it aside and prays for Corelli, since “she really ought to have known better”. In 2007, the British film Angel. Based on a book by Elizabeth Taylor. Was released as a thinly-veiled biography of Corelli. The film starred Romola Garai. In the Corelli role and also starred Sam Neill. It was directed by François Ozon. Who stated, The character of Angel was inspired by Marie Corelli, a contemporary of Oscar Wilde. Corelli was one of the first writers to become a star, writing bestsellers for an adoring public. Today she has been largely forgotten, even in England.
