Marie Corelli (1855 - 1924)

By Darren Barnett

Marie Corelli (1855 - 1924)

Author, convalesced at the Kings Hotel, Brighton.

Marie Corelli wrote her first novel 'A Romance of Two Worlds' in 1886. She was a very popular novellist but not critically acclaimed.

A recurring theme throughout Corelli's books was her attempt to reconcile Christianity with reincarnation, astral projection and other mystical topics (which makes her an appropriate Brighton character)! Her primary Brighton link though is her convalescence at the Kings Hotel in Brighton after an operation.
