Books Info:

The Sorrows of Satan free pdf The Sorrows of Satan is an faustian novel by Marie Corelli. It is widely regarded as one of the world's first bestsellers, partly due to an upheaval in the system British libraries used to purchase their books and partly due to its popular appeal. Roundly condemned by critics for Corelli's moralistic and prosaic style it nonetheless had strong supporters in Oscar Wilde and various members of royalty. Widely ignored in literary circles, it is increasingly regarded as an influential fin de siecle text. The book is occasionally subtitled "Or the Strange Experience of one Geoffrey Tempest, Millionaire.""

About Marie Corelli

Marie Corelli, pseudonym of Mary Mackay (born 1855, London, Eng.-died April 21, 1924, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick), best-selling English author of more than 20 romantic melodramatic novels. Her first book, A Romance of Two Worlds (1886), dealt with psychic experience-a theme in many of her later novels. Her first major success was Barabbas: A Dream of the World's Tragedy (1893), in which her treatment of the Crucifixion was designed to appeal to popular taste. The Sorrows of Satan (1895), also based on a melodramatic treatment of a religious theme, had an even wider vogue. Throughout her immensely successful career, she was accused of sentimentality and poor taste. Later in life she played an at times controversial role in efforts to preserve historic buildings in Stratford-upon-Avon.
