This chapter considers the Phantom Fortune, centring on imperialist and colonial issues, and addresses the questions that are raised by capitalistic economic practices during late Victorian Britain. It views Phantom Fortune as another attempt to go beyond the Lady Audley paradigm, and to refresh Braddon’s narrative using the influence of French realism. The chapter reveals Braddon’s affiliation to Marx, and views Phantom Fortune as a model of Braddon’s wide and prolific career.

Keywords:   Phantom Fortune, imperialist issues, colonial issues, capitalistic economic practices, Lady Audley paradigm, French realism, Karl Marx
