dc.description.abstract This discussion of Mrs. Southworth's work focuses on four of her novels: Retribution (1849), The Curse of Clifton (1853), The Hidden Hand (1859), and The Bride's Fate (1869). In her own life, Southworth had many obstacles to overcome, and her heroines reflect this. Although in many ways Southworth was an independent woman during the 1800s, she was also dependent on others, such as her editor, for support and financial bonuses. In many ways Southworth's characters reflect this same paradox of independence while yet being dependent.
