Caroline Clive's writing, though largely obscure today, was celebrated during the mid-nineteenth century. She published four novels and several collections of poetry, and contributed to a number of periodicals. As an initiator of the sensation novel, CC arguably revolutionized the aims and objects of fiction in the latter half of the nineteenth century.
