This is the fourth video lecture on Henry Dunbar, the 1864 sensation novel by Mary Elizabeth Braddon. It uses what is now an infamous attack on sensation novels in 1863 by the cultural commentator Henry Longueville Mansel as a platform to raise issues about sensation fiction in general and Henry Dunbar in particular. This video investigates the links to sensation fiction of railway reading and sensation drama. You can find the first video on Henry Dunbar here:
