    Wilkie Collins
    A close friend of Charles Dickens from their meeting in March 1851 until Dickens death in June 1870, William Wilkie Collins was one of the best known, best loved, and, for a time, best paid of Victorian fiction writers But after his death, his reputation declined as Dickens bloomed Now, Collins is being given critical and popular attention than he has received for 50 years Most of his books are in print, and all are now in e text He is studied widely new film, television, and radio versions of some of his books have been made and all of his letters have been published However, there is still much to be discovered about this superstar of Victorian fiction.Born in Marylebone, London in 1824, Collins family enrolled him at the Maida Hill Academy in 1835, but then took him to France and Italy with them between 1836 and 1838 Returning to England, Collins attended Cole s boarding school, and completed his education in 1841, after which he was apprenticed to the tea merchants Antrobus Co in the Strand In 1846, Collins became a law student at Lincoln s Inn, and was called to the bar in 1851, although he never practised It was in 1848, a year after the death of his father, that he published his first book, The Memoirs of the Life of William Collins, Esq R.A to good reviews The 1860s saw Collins creative high point, and it was during this decade that he achieved fame and critical acclaim, with his four major novels, The Woman in White 1860 , No Name 1862 , Armadale 1866 and The Moonstone 1868 The Moonstone , is seen by many as the first true detective novel T S Eliot called it the first, the longest, and the best of modern English detective novels in a genre invented by Collins and not by Poe.

    Wilkie Collins fue uno de los precursores del relato detectivesco y de intriga. Su talento es enorme a la hora de introducirnos en las historias que plantea, y en unas pocas frases es capaz de trasladarte al escenario de la trama. Así, genios del calibre de Borges eran grandes admiradores suyos. Collins, nacido en Londres en 1824, fue gran amigo de otro genio indiscutible, Charles Dickens, que le apadrinó en el difícil mundo literario de la época. De la mano de Dickens, Collins llegó a publ [...]

    Quel che molti non sanno è che il talento di Wilkie Collins, che si può definire scoperto da Charles Dickens, rimase anche in ombra dalla celebrità di quest'ultimo. È chiaro che i lavori di Collins dovevano prima piacere al direttore editoriale di Household Words, Dickens appunto, e poi agli altri. Nonostante ciò gli scritti di Collins sono parecchi e questo è solo uno dei meno celebri: è in tutto e per tutto archetipo del genere gotico, il discendente di un'antica famiglia perseguitata d [...]

    Un piccolo gioiello del gotico con una finissima definizione dei luoghi e dei personaggi, scritto da quel maestro del genere che fu Wilkie Collins.Una lettura veloce, piacevolissima e piena di suspance.

    Sensation novel breve ma notevole, che tratta lo spinoso tema della follia e che per questo ha avuto una pubblicazione un po' travagliata (vedi il rifiuto di Dickens in veste di direttore della rivista Household Words).L'ambientazione duplice, prima in una vecchia dimora inglese, poi in Italia (tra Napoli e i territori di confine con lo Stato della Chiesa), è una caratteristica che ho apprezzato, e così pure la coppia di personaggi principali, il razionale narratore e il "folle" Alfred Monkton [...]

    wilkie Collins rimane uno dei miei scrittori preferiti. Qui lo scrivo e qui lo affermo. E se vi piace Dickens non vi potete esimere dal leggere anche Wilkie Collins. Il problema è che anche se Collins fu uno scrittore prolifico (25 romanzi, racconti, opere teatrali, ecc.)in questo momento in Italia si trova poco o niente. Questo racconto è gotico e sorprendente. E Collins, maestro del finale aperto e della conclusione irritante crea l'attenzione del lettore fino all'ultima pagina. Bello wilkie [...]

    Collins es un maestro del misterio. Es imposible dejar de leerlo y es imposible saber a dónde te llevarán sus historias. Quisiera cargar todo el día el libro conmigo para ver si mi día se vuelve tan intrincado y misterioso como sus historias, historias que además suceden a personajes tan cotidianos y aburridos en algunos casos como algunos de nosotros. Desde un viajero del ártico hasta una vieja maldición familiar con un muerto desaparecido bajo el mar muy recomendable.

    Un relato largo de corte fantástico muy bien escrito, genial para meter entre lecturas más densas sin bajar la calidad de las mismas. Me ha gustado muchísimo, y esta edición es muy recomendable (es pequeña y la letra no es demasiado grande pero se lee muy cómodo y además la portada tiene un tacto muy agradable).

    Daniela
    Pieni voti per questo piccolo gioiello di Wilkie Collins.Le pagine scorrono facilmente grazie anche alla scrittura carica di suspense e dal ritmo incalzante. E' una trama di follia. Una follia che rimante indecifrabile fino alla fine perchè mescolata con mistero, fantasmi, superstizioni e tradizioni di un'antica famiglia. Il tutto ambientato in un atmosfera classica eppure oscura e tenebrosa.

    Los esfuerzos de Monkton y su amigo por sepulturar un familiar y acabar una maligna profesía.Entretenidorelato con mucho suspenso y algo de tristeza.Unalograda mezcla gótica,policial y psicologica.Seguiré a este autor.

    While Collins' short stories are nowhere as brilliant as his novels, this is an entertaining collection of mysteries, from classic "who-done-it"s to slightly supernatural stories. For fans of Victoriana and those who are interested in the beginning of the mystery genre.
