Collins, Wilkie: Wilkie Collins in All the Year Round. v1, 12 Aug 2015

Wilkie Collins lived in London from 1824 to 1889, a period in which 'the inevitable self-assertion of wealth, so amiably deplored by the prosperous and the rich; [was] so bitterly familiar to the unfortunate and the poor.'

He was short, plump, and short sighted; despite his severe suffering from gout he was a traveller, bon vivant, journalist, satirist, essayist, novelist, dramatist and social activist; and friend, collaborator, and rival of Charles Dickens. He became addicted to laudanum, and several of his characters praise it.

Many of his works were first published as serials in Charles Dickens' journals Household Words and All the Year Round. This ebook contains the twenty articles in All the Year Round attributed to Collins by the editors of the Dickens Journals Online site. They give a fascinating picture of the attitudes of his times.
