Abstract

George Egerton was the pen name of Mary Chavelita Dunne – a charismatic woman whose work foreshadowed that of later female novelists such as Dorothy Richardson and Virginia Woolf. The Wheel of God (1898) uses literary devices which can be seen as indicative of proto-modernism. Woman is here depicted as an unknowable force, and in a style that is fragmentary and episodic. It is a fascinating and unique example of women’s fiction from this period.
