Dupuy, Eliza Ann
THE CANCELLED WILL
Eliza Ann Dupuy (1814-1881), born in Petersburg, Virginia, was primarily a novelist
although she wrote many short stories for the New York Ledger under the pen name
Annie Young. Among her longer works were The Conspirator (1850), All for Love
(1873), and The Discarded Wife (1875). Dupuy spent her entire life in the South,
teaching and writing. Despite her firm southern point of view, her articles and
short stories were accepted in the North, even during the Civil War years. A
facile writer and systematic worker, she injected sensationalism and melodrama
into her novels. Her works were based on such trappings of the domestic novel
and the melodramatic romance as coincidence, stock characters and situations,
digressions, and authorial intervention in the narrative. They had no great literary
pretensions at all, but, nevertheless, found many readers who were eager for
this type of make-believe and adventure. Eliza Dupuy's fiction belongs to a tradition
in American literature as old as Susanna Rowson and as recent as Faith Baldwin.
