This is the annotated edition including the rare biographical essay by Edwin E. Slosson called "H. G. Wells - A Major Prophet Of His Time". Lady Harman is simply one more girl married rather prematurely to a man much too old for her and in blind ignorance of the obligations that she is incurring.

Furthermore, Sir Isaac is jealous, and during the first six years of their marriage he has contrived, not only that his wife shall form no intimate friendships with other women, but that she shall never enjoy two minutes of uninterrupted private conversation with any man other than himself. Consequently, the adventure with which this chronicle opens, when Lady Harman, chaperoned solely by her chauffeur, inspects a country house that is offered for sale, and incidentally makes the acquaintance of its owner, the novelist, George Bromley, author of the "Euphemia Books," opens a crucial epoch in her life. It is her first actual contact with the world of art and letters, her first experience of any life other than staid, conventional, iron-clad conservatism. The seeds of rebellion have long been germinating within her, and undoubtedly would have borne fruit sooner or later; but it is this meeting with Bromley that hastens events, encourages her to defy her husband's commands and make the acquaintance of women of the advanced type …

Many female Victorian-era heroines find themselves expressing a form of loneliness directly connected to their lack of agency. Loneliness is defined by a lack, and it is this that is prevalent to these characters’ discussion of the social structures that define their lives. As there is no way to easily discuss a lack of agency without stating that there is something missing from the root agency, loneliness is an expression of missing components. This work analyses this “lack” found in loneliness as a trope to discuss a social lack. Many novels are crucial to this discussion, and this book focuses on Charlotte Brontë’s Villette (1853), Anne Brontë’s Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1848), George Eliot’s The Mill on the Floss (1860), Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the d’Urbervilles (1892), Florence Marryat’s The Blood of the Vampire (1897) and Ella Hepworth Dixon’s The Story of a Modern Woman (1894) to trace the evolution of the double use of lack in the nineteenth-century novel.
