This new volume in the Literary Lives series focuses on the career
of the popular Victorian novelist Wilkie Collins (1824-1889), and
provides a new account of his professional life in the literary
world of nineteenth-century Britain. It draws on recently available
business and personal correspondence to establish a fresh portrait
of one of Victorian Britain's busiest authors, taking in Collins's
notoriously complicated private life and his friendship with
Charles Dickens, as well his work as journalist, reviewer and
playwright. New insights are given into the international
dimensions of Collins's career. There is discussion of Collins's
best-known novels, including The Woman in White, The Moonstone and
Armadale, but attention is also given to lesser-known works and to
Collins's plays, which have long been neglected. The volume will
appeal to all students of Wilkie Collins and also to those
interested in the literary world of Victorian Britain and the
social and business networks which lay at its heart.
