Or, get it for Kobo Super Points! In this series View all Book 9. He was a literary superstar who had set himself up as a paragon of family virtue: a father of nine whose novels erected domestic bliss as the moral ideal. And he was loved for it. When Dickens fell for Ternan, a poor, not particularly talented actress, he threw this public image of himself into mortal jeopardy — and had to resort to Machiavellian subterfuge to keep it secret.
The lengths he went to included excising all mention of Ternan from the press reports of a famous train crash they were both in, trudging across muddy fields to avoid being followed to the home he had set up for her — and burning every scrap of correspondence. He was one man before and another man after.
When he keeled over from a stroke in at the age of only 58 it was arguably the effort of maintaining his double life that had killed him. The seeds of disaster were there from the beginning. By the mids, when his marriage was already 20 years old, Dickens was no longer attracted to his wife, Catherine. When he hired Nelly for a semi-professional production he was involved in, most commentators agree he was in the midst of a midlife crisis.
Kathryn Hughes speaks too of a kind of double morality Dickens evolved at the time. When the police mistook Nelly and her sister for prostitutes, Dickens complained to Scotland Yard at the slight. She was his mistress. For the duration of the romance Dickens supported Nelly; and left her sufficient money after he died to ensure she never had to work again. But Nelly paid her own high price for the affair.
Not only did their child die in infancy, but she had to live the life of a recluse, using assumed names and constantly risking vilification herself. Thirty-one years old by then, she reinvented herself as a student in her early twenties and went on to marry a teacher, George Robinson.
She never told either him or their children her real age.
