This chapter examines Mary Ward’s novel Marcella (1894). It explores the ways that Ward’s representation of the titular protagonist Marcella Boyce’s experience of domestic space offers its readers an exercise in liberal cognition. It focuses specifically on the novel’s portrait of the Herbrand Street Peabody Buildings in Bloomsbury, fictionalised as the Brown’s Buildings, and the ways this space is used to facilitate the protagonist’s intellectual development.

Keywords:   Mary Wards, Marcellal, Liberalism, Liberal Cognition Peabody Buildings, Brown’s Building, Bloomsbury
