(P/B) HEART AND SCIENCE
A STORY OF THE PRESENT TIME
Εκδότης: BROADVIEW PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0735-0037

Wilkie Collins's later novels are often as concerned with social issues as they are with simple storytelling - but as more and more critics are suggesting, the best of them are as readable and thought-provoking today as they were when they first appeared. Of none is this more true than of his 1883 novel Heart and Science, which Collins himself placed alongside his masterpiece The Woman in White. Heart and Science turns on the fate of the orphaned Carmina Graywell, who is left in the charge of her aunt and guardian Mrs. Gallilee when her ...

(H/B) THE MOONSTONE
Εκδότης: CRW PUBLISHING
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3874-0109

The Moonstone is a magnificent yellow diamond, 'large as a plover's egg', with a bloody history, which has been stolen from the home of Lady Verinder. An innocent man is accused of the crime. From this simple beginning Wilkie Collins creates a stunning, complex narrative of dark mystery, suspense and atmosphere. It is one of the cornerstones in the development of crime fiction. The poet and critic T.S. Eliot declared that it was 'the first, the longest and the best of modern English detective novels'. But The Moonstone, which has fascinate...

(P/B) THE EVIL GENIUS
Εκδότης: BROADVIEW PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0735-0038

Wilkie Collins is best known for his great mystery The Moonstone and The Woman in White - and for a life as sensational as are those novels. (The writer who famously advised other novelists to 'make 'em laugh, make 'em cry, make 'em wait' is now known to have kept entire households in different parts of England going simultaneously.) Yet Collins also wrote a succession of extraordinarily powerful novels of private life; of these The Evil Genius is among the finest. The story is motivates by the attraction between Herbert Linley and the ...

(P/B) BLIND LOVE
Εκδότης: BROADVIEW PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0735-0039

Blind Love is Wilkie Collins's final novel. Although he did not live to complete the work, he left detailed plans for the last third of this absorbingly plotted novel which were faithfully executed by his colleague, the popular author Walter Besant. The novel is set during the Irish Land War of the early 1880s and tells the story of Iris Henley, an independent young woman who marries the "wild" Lord Harry Norland, a member of an Irish secret society, and becomes unhappily drawn into a conspiracy plot. The Broadview edition of Blind Love i...

(P/B) THE LAZY TOUR OF THE TWO IDLE APPRENTICES
Εκδότης: HESPERUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0957-0158

In autumn 1857, Charles Dickens embarked on a sightseeing trip to Cumberland with his friend, the rising star of literature Wilkie Collins. Writing together, they reported their adventures for Dickens' periodical Household Words, producing a meditation on the pleasures of bachelor bonding and an example of collaborative journalism at its best. The Lazy Tour of the Two Idle Apprentices showcases both long-cherished and entirely novel sides of these well-loved men of letters. (From the publisher)...

ΤΑ ΠΑΓΩΜΕΝΑ ΒΑΘΗ
Εκδότης: ΠΟΝΤΙΚΙ
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3550-0094

Ο Κόλλινς εμπνεύστηκε τα "Παγωμένα Βάθη" από την αποτυχημένη αποστολή του Φράνκλιν, το 1845, για την ανακάλυψη του βορειοδυτικού περάσματος της Αρκτικής και αρχικά τα έγραψε σε μορφή θεατρικού έργου. Το έργο διασκευάστηκε από τον Ντίκενς και παίχτηκε για πρώτη φορά τον Ιανουάριο του 1857 από το θίασο του Ντίκενς, με τον Κόλλινς και τον Ντίκενς στους πρωταγωνιστικούς ρόλους του Φράνσις Άλντερσλι και Ρίτσαρντ Ουάρντορ αντιστοίχως. Εμπνευσμένος από την ιδέα του ερωτευμένου που αυτοθυσιάζεται, ο Ντίκενς δημιούργησε το Σίντνεϊ Κάρτον, ήρωα του ...

Valeria Woodville's first act as a married woman is to sign her name in the marriage register incorrectly, and this slip is followed by the gradual disclosure of a series of secrets about her husband's earlier life, each of which leads on to another set of questions and enigmas. Her discoveries prompt her to defy her husband's authority, to take the law into into a labyrinthine maze of false clues and deceptive identities, in which the exploration of the tangled workings of the mind becomes linked to an investigation into the masquerades o...

(P/B) WHO KILLED ZEBEDEE?
Εκδότης: HESPERUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0957-0058

London, circa 1880: a lovelorn policeman, a pocket knife and the unsolved crime of a young husband, murdered on his honeymoon. Narrated as the deathbed confession of a London policeman, Who Killed Zebedee? exposes the seamier side of Victorian Britain: a realm of cheap hotels, under-paid servants and desperate measures. With a policeman as his narrator, and a female cook as the detective's accomplice, Collins places the world of lower-middle class England at the centre of his fiction. The accompanying tale, John Jago's Ghost, set in Americ...
