Description
Beginning as a novel that one of the Victorian novelists simply failed to write, The French Lieutenant's Woman opens the world of the 1860s and 70s to the perspective of time and imagination, allowing us to see the image of modern man reflected in the past. The romantic triangle at the heart of the novel—set in a moody 19th-century Lyme Regis in Dorset, England—involves Charles Smithson, a gentlemen with a vaguely scientific bent; his fiancée, Ernestina Freeman, the daughter of a wealthy merchant; and the enigmatic Sarah Woodruff, who has been deserted after an affair with a French naval officer—and with whom Charles is obsessed. What makes The French Lieutenant's Woman extraordinary, however, is John Fowles interjecting himself and commenting—safely from his 20th-century vantage point—on the Victorian scene.

"A remarkable, original work in which at least two visions operate simultaneously, the one Victorian and melodramatic, the other modern and wise. An outlandish achievement!"—Joyce Carol Oates
