Having previously tried my hand at short serial stories collected and reprinted in After Dark and The Queen of Hearts I ventured on my first attempt in this book to produce a sustained work of fiction intended for periodical publication during many successive weeks The experiment proved successful both in this country and in America Two of the characters which appear in these pages Rosamond and Uncle Joseph had the good fortune to find friends everywhere who took a hearty liking to them A more elaborately drawn personage in the story Sarah Leeson was I think less generally understood The idea of tracing in this character the influence of a heavy responsibility on a naturally timid woman whose mind was neither strong enough to bear it nor bold enough to drop it altogether was a favorite idea with me at the time and is so much a favorite still that I privately give Sarah Leeson the place of honor in the little portrait gallery which my story contains Perhaps in saying this I am only acknowledging in other words that the parents of literary families share the well known inconsistencies of parents in general and are sometimes unreasonably fond of the child who has always given them the most trouble Wilkie Collins January, In one moment every drop of blood in my body was brought to a stop There as if it had that moment sprung out of the earth stood the figure of a solitary Woman dressed from head to foot in white br br em The Woman in White em famously opens with Walter Hartright s eerie encounter on a moonlit London road Engaged as a drawing master to the beautiful Laura Fairlie Walter becomes embroiled in the sinister intrigues of Sir Percival Glyde and his charming friend Count Fosco who has a taste for white mice vanilla bonbons and poison Pursuing questions of identity and insanity along the paths and corridors of English country houses and the madhouse em The Woman in White em is the first and most influential of the Victorian genre that combined Gothic horror with psychological realism br br Matthew Sweet s introduction explores the phenomenon of Victorian sensation fiction and discusses Wilkie Collins s biographical and societal influences Included in this edition are appendices on theatrical adaptations of the novel and its serialisation history, The novel has a convoluted plot about two distant cousins both named Allan Armadale The father of one had murdered the father of the other the two fathers are also named Allan Armadale The story starts with a deathbed confession by the murderer in the form of a letter to be given to his baby son when he grows up Many years are skipped over The son mistreated at home runs away from his mother and stepfather and takes up a wandering life under the assumed name of Ozias Midwinter, b Mr Vanstone s daughters are Nobody s Children b br br Magdalen Vanstone and her sister Norah learn the true meaning of social stigma in Victorian England only after the traumatic discovery that their dearly loved parents whose sudden deaths have left them orphans were not married at the time of their birth Disinherited by law and brutally ousted from Combe Raven the idyllic country estate which has been their peaceful home since childhood the two young women are left to fend for themselves While the submissive Norah follows a path of duty and hardship as a governess her high spirited and rebellious younger sister has made other decisions Determined to regain her rightful inheritance at any cost Magdalen uses her unconventional beauty and dramatic talent in recklessly pursuing her revenge Aided by the audacious swindler Captain Wragge she braves a series of trials leading up to the climactic test can she trade herself in marriage to the man she loathes br br Written in the early s between i The Woman in White i and i The Moonstone i i No Name i was rejected as immoral by critics of its time but is today regarded as a novel of outstanding social insight showing Collins at the height of his powers
