1881 Collins Novelist Wilkie


EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures the enigmatic and intellectual presence of Wilkie Collins (1824-1889), a renowned English novelist and master of the Victorian-era mystery genre. Taken in the late 1880s, the image reveals Collins in the prime of his later years, with a thoughtful expression that suggests both introspection and creativity. Born in London on January 12, 1824, Collins began his literary career as a journalist before turning to fiction. He is best known for his innovative and groundbreaking works, including "The Woman in White" (1860) and "The Moonstone" (1868), which are considered seminal texts in the development of the detective novel. Collins' novels were notable for their complex plots, intriguing characters, and exploration of social issues, making him a pioneer of the genre. Collins was also an influential figure in the literary world, mentoring and collaborating with other prominent writers of the time, such as Charles Dickens and George Eliot. He was a prolific writer, producing over 20 novels, numerous short stories, and plays. Despite his literary success, Collins' personal life was marked by tragedy. He suffered from a debilitating illness for much of his adult life and was partially blind in one eye. He was also a lifelong bachelor and devoted caregiver to his mother and sister. This photograph provides a glimpse into the complex and intriguing life of a literary giant, whose works continue to captivate and inspire readers around the world. Wilkie Collins' enduring legacy as a master storyteller and innovator in the detective genre is evident in the many adaptations of his works that continue to be produced to this day.
