Hall Caine and the melodrama on page, stage and screen

Hammond, Mary (2004) Hall Caine and the melodrama on page, stage and screen Nineteenth Century Theatre and Film, 31, (1), pp. 39-57.

Record type: Article


The Victorian novelist Sir Thomas Henry Hall Caine (1853-1931) became a household name during a spectacular career that spanned more than forty years. He sold in total around ten million copies of his fifteen novels, extended their reach still further through several successful dramatisations, was mobbed by fans wherever he went, and was lauded or lampooned almost daily in the Press. This essay reviews and reassesses Caine's work and the intersections between his popular novels and plays, and adaptations of his works to film.
