Emily Frederick Clark

Standard Name: Clark, Emily Frederick
Indexed Name: Emily Frederick Clarke
EFC wrote for the support of her family (whose supposedly distinguished origins were very important to her). Between 1798 and 1819 she published four novels, a volume of poems, and another of stories. Much other work remained unpublished. The Feminist Companion summarises the pattern of her fiction as high life, partly abroad; ideal heroines happily married after undeserved suffering; villains punished, and loyal lower orders . . . thanked.
