The Mighty Atom

Folcroft Library Editions

Marie Corelli lived in the time or Darwin, and took real exception to the intellectual incursions then being made on territory previously reserved to matters of faith. In its way, it's a sad thing: in _The Mighty Atom_ a gifted writer rails against the evidence of man's senses. There may be -- we'd say there are -- ways to reconcile the eternal with the evidence of our senses. But surely a harangue in the cloak of fiction is not the way to do it; rather more by railing at the dark she teaches folks to find the intellectual courage to step into it. Regardless, Corelli was a gifted writer, and whether the tale she tells here is the one she intended or not, she tells a fine and interesting tale. (Jacketless library hardcover.)

About the author

Marie Corelli (1 May 1855 -- 21 April 1924) was a British novelist. She enjoyed a period of great literary success from the publication of her first novel in 1886 until World War I. Corelli's novels sold more copies than the combined sales of popular contemporaries, including Arthur Conan Doyle, H. G. Wells, and Rudyard Kipling. Corelli was born in London. She wrote both fiction and nonfiction, short stories and dramatic plays. Some of her works were adapted to film and theatre productions. In her final years, Corelli lived on Stratford-Upon-Avon. She was considered to be eccentric and could be seen boating there in a gondola from Venice complete with a gondolier. Corelli died there in 1924 and is buried in the Evesham Road cemetery. Her house, Mason Croft, still stands on Church Street and is now the home of the Shakespeare Institute.
