'A tour de force. . . full of wit, surprises and intrigue . . . We can imagine Jane Austen reading Miss Marjoribankswith enjoyment and approval in the Elysian Fields.' So wrote Q.D.Leavis, who declared Margaret Oliphant's heroine Lucilla to be the 'missing link' in 19th century literature between Jane Austen's Emma and George Eliot's Dorothea Brooke, and 'more entertaining, more impressive and more likeable than either.' Returning home to tend her widowed father Dr Marjoribanks, Lucilla soon launches herself into Carlingford society, aiming to raise the tone with her select Thursday evening parties. Optimistic, resourceful and blithely unimpeded by self-doubt, Lucilla is a superior being in every way, not least in relation to men. This edition is introduced and edited by Margaret Oliphant's acclaimed biographer Elizabeth Jay.

Elisabeth Jay is Emeritus Professor of English at Oxford Brookes University. Her interests lie predominantly in the nineteenth and early twentieth century, and she has published widely on the fiction, prose and poetry of this period. She is on the Advisory Boards of the journals Literature & Theology (OUP) and English (OUP) and of the Institute of English Studies (University of London).
