"The Wings of Icarus, Being the Life of One Emilia Fletcher," is an epistolary novel of a young heiress written by the daughter of the noted pre-Raphaelite painter of classical themes, Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. The book was published as part of a series written at the end of the 19th Century, "Pioneer Tales," which also included "The Green Carnation," by Robert Hichens, a thinly-veiled send-up of Oscar Wilde and Lord Alfred "Bosie" Douglas's ill-fated relationship.

Born in 1865 to Lawrence Alma-Tadema and his first wife, Pauline, Laurense Alma-Tadema wrote a number of books between 1890 and 1905, among them, "Love's Martyr, The Crucifix, Realms of Unknown Kings, Songs of Womanhood, Four Plays, The Meaning of Happiness," and "A Few Lyrics." She died in 1940.
