A Library Of Tales Volume 1 PB - Lady Herbert Of Lea

A Library Of Tales Volume 1 PB - Lady Herbert Of Lea

Code / ISBN: 9781784695453
Format: Paperback
Date Published: 17/10/2017
Description: Lady Herbert’s Wayside Tales are in the classic vein of “improving literature”. CTS published thirty volumes of them in 1899; some were still in print two decades later.

The Two Sisters is a case-study in the perils Victorian life afforded to penniless women orphans: drink, and concubinage. The Story of a Conversion encourages servants not to let fear of losing their position prevent them from becoming Catholic; whilst Can Both Churches Be True? is a sort of Socratic dialogue about the problems of the Anglo-Catholic “branch theory” (whereby the Church of England is that part of the Church Catholic in England). It contains some good hits (“It’s making the truth just a matter of geography!”) but is hardly fiction in any strong sense.

The other three stories are concerned with deathbed or near-deathbed conversions.
It is easy to suppose all these stories were drawn from life, even the Italian local colour (Lady Herbert became Catholic whilst living in Palermo).
