1824 1889 Candle Collins Diamond Melodrama Moon Mystery Novelist Novels Sambourne Satire Wilkie


EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures the enigmatic and intriguing figure of Wilkie Collins (1824-1889), a renowned English novelist known for his groundbreaking works in the genres of mystery and melodrama. The image, created in 1889 by the renowned illustrator and satirist, George Du Maurier, under the pseudonym "Sambourne," offers a unique perspective on Collins' literary prowess. Collins' novels, filled with suspense, intrigue, and unexpected twists, were a staple of Victorian literature. His most famous works, such as "The Woman in White" and "The Moonstone," continue to captivate readers with their intricate plots and unforgettable characters. In this photograph, Collins is depicted with a candle, surrounded by an array of books, creating an atmosphere reminiscent of the dimly lit rooms in his novels. However, this photograph is not just a simple portrait. Sambourne, a master of satire, adds a layer of complexity to the image by including a diamond in the foreground, casting an ominous shadow on the table. The diamond, a symbol of wealth and power, serves as a reminder of the themes of greed and obsession that often underlie Collins' novels. The inclusion of the moon in the background further emphasizes the historical and mysterious elements of the photograph. The moon, a symbol of mystery and the unknown, is a common motif in Collins' works, adding to the overall theme of the image. This photograph is not only a testament to Collins' literary legacy but also a visual representation of the intrigue and suspense that defined his novels. Sambourne's satirical touch adds an extra layer of depth to the image, making it a fascinating and thought-provoking piece of Victorian literature and art.
