With a new introduction by Marie Mulvey Roberts. Dismissed as the "mad wife" of Lord Edward Bulwer-Lytton, Rosina Bulwer-Lytton was committed to an asylum for, among other things, openly opposing him during his campaign as a Tory MP. Her written retaliation offers her side of the story. Was she a wronged woman or a hysteric who misrepresented an eminent man? You can read her story yourself and decide.  From the Subversive Women series from Thoemmes Preses, Bristol. 1994. Paper. NEW. $12.00
