"Through Victoria, the femme fatale heroine of her powerful Gothic novel, Charlotte Dacre revels in the uninhibited expression of female desire; for sexual consummation, for psychological and political power, for religious transgression. This novel is superbly edited and introduced by Adriana Craciun." - Anne K. Mellor, UCLA
"Like other editions in this fine series, this one provides an informative critical introduction, as well as several appendixes featuring notable sources for Dacre's novel and selections from the reviews it received in 1806." - Nineteenth-Century Literature
From the Publisher
The Broadview Editions series is an effort to represent the ever-changing canon of literature in English by bringing together texts long regarded as classics with valuable, lesser-known literature. Newly type-set and produced on high-quality paper in trade paperback format, the Broadview Editions series is a delight to handle as well as read.
Each volume includes a full introduction, chronology, bibliography, and explanatory notes along with a variety of documents from the period, giving readers a rich sense of the world from which the work emerged.See all Product description

This is a fantastic story. Zofloya, or the devil made flesh, is undeniably sexy as Dacre renders him and there is no denying the attraction which Victoria feels for him, almost simultaneously with the fear he invokes within her. His supernatural nature is subtly rendered for the reader - filling Victoria's chamber with silvery mist just before he materialises at the end of her bed and all those mysterious appearances and disappearances, just when he is wanted most.
Not to be missed - I'd never heard of this book before the course but would definitely recommend it for any one who is interested in Gothic or 19th Century literature.
I particularly liked the Broadview Literary Texts edition as it had a great piece on Nyphomania at the end which informed Dacre's work, some fantastic contemporaneous reviews (it was largely slated which just goes to show what critics know!) and a fabulous example of a gothic chapbook which completely plagiarises the work. Definitely worth the extra expense for this edition.
