Inhaltsangabe: It has been said that for well sustained story interest and intriii cacy of plot, Wilkie Collins has no peer in English fiction and i the best examples of his genius are found in The Moonstone 4(issued with our first Comdie Humaine Series) and The Woman in White. Though ranking below his great contemporaries Thackeray, Dickens and George Eliot when one considers the tiigher reaches of the novelists art, as a story-tefler, pure and simple Collins outranks them all. Says Mr. Swinburne of one of his novels, Dickens never wrote and Thackeray never tried to write a story so excellent in construction and so persistent in its hold on the readers curiosity a curiosity amounting, in the case of the younger ana more impressible readers, to absolute.anxiety. The Woman in White, published in i860, made Col Hns sreputation as a novelist; and one of the characters in this remarkable I mystery story Count Fosco, an unctuous type of villain is thought by many to be his masterpiece of portraiture. The literary career of William Wilkie Collins (bom in 1824) coincides very nearly with the second half of the nineteenth cen tury. His first novel, A ntonina, was published in 1850, and Kfrom that date until his death in 1889 his stories followed one ;another in uninterrupted succession. The list of his more important publications, including several volumes of short stories, .comprises twenty-seven titles. His life, which was uneventful, was passed in his birthplace, London, with the exception of several periods of travel one of which (1873-4) was spent in the .U nited States.

"There in the middle of the broad, bright high-road-there, as if it had that moment sprung out of the earth or dropped from the heaven-stood the figure of a solitary woman, dressed from head to foot in white garments."
Thus young Walter Hartright first meets the mysterious woman in white in what soon became one of the most popular novels of the nineteenth century. Secrets, mistaken identities, surprise revelations, amnesia, locked rooms and locked asylums, and an unorthodox villain made this mystery thriller an instant success when it first appeared in 1860, and it has continued to enthrall readers ever since. From the hero's foreboding before his arrival at Limmeridge House to the nefarious plot concerning the beautiful Laura, the breathtaking tension of Collin's narrative created a new literary genre of suspense fiction, which profoundly shaped the course of English popular writing. Collins other great mystery, "The Moonstone," has been called the finest detective story ever written, but it was this work that so gripped the imagination of the world that Wilkie Collins had his own tombstone inscribed: "Author of "The Woman In White." . .
