The Heart of Jane Warner by Florence MarryatPublished in 1885, The Heart of Jane Warner is a story involving irregular marriage, dementia, and drug addiction. The Graphic dismissed it as yet another portrayal of “the selfishness and brutality of man, and the frailty of angelic woman.”  John Bull objected to the “many nasty allusions and innuendoes which interfere with the reader’s enjoyment.”
