The novels of Wilkie Collins occupy a marginal space in the canon of English literature. Collins is all too frequently seen as a minor member of the Dickens clique or, at best, the creator of the middle-brown detective novel. However, this is to ignore his prolific and varied output. This book offers a new and fresh appraisal of the Collins novels and treats in detail many of the author's works all but ignored by the twentieth century reader.


"...O'Neill's presentations of women, gender issues, and sexuality are illuminating."
