Abstract: Leon Edel expressed the central puzzle of writing biography as "every life takes its own form and a biographer must find the ideal and unique literary form that will express it" (qtd. in Novarr 165). My primary challenge in writing Poisoned: The Trials of Mary Dean – a biography in the form of a (fictionalised) first-person memoir purportedly written by the subject herself – was the location of a textual voice for Mary that, if not her own, could have credibly belonged to a woman of her time, place and circumstance.
