This article examines the character of Lady Audley’s Secret by Mary Elizabehth Braddon. In fact I revisit this novel to discuss, the role poverty, whether Lady Audley a Mad Woman, deception as a feminist act, Lady Audley as Other, transgressive behavior as an expression of rebellion, angel in the house turned wild, harsh patriarchy, and at the end I will discuss passivity as a punishment for lady Audely who has been an active woman.
