Set in the 1850's in bohemian Paris, 'Trilby' by George du Maurier, was published in 1895, and became one of the most popular novels of its time (although it has been criticised for being anti-semitic). It tells the story of Trilby o'Ferrall, an Irish girl who comes under the spell of Svengali, a rogue hypnotist, who pushes her to sing, despite her not particularly wanting to. The novel gave us the word 'Svengali', now used to denote a manipulative person.
