Collins, Wilkie: Antonina. v1. 03 Oct 2021

Ancient Rome, AD 408: Young Antonina had the misfortune to live in interesting times — the days when mighty Rome was brought low by the terror of the Goths — the period of the march of the Gothic invaders over the Alps to the close of the first barbarian blockade of Rome.

Collins’ first published novel, and his only historical fiction — subsequent writing was always set in modern society. An interesting read for Wilkie Collins fans, if only to observe his early beginnings, and compare how his talent and style evolved.

William Wilkie Collins (8 January 1824 – 23 September 1889) was an English novelist, playwright, and short story writer. He remains most famous for his novels The Woman in White (1859) and The Moonstone (1868), in which he pioneered a new style of “sensation” writing, the influence of which can still be seen in today’s culture in the genres of crime, mystery and suspense. The Moonstone is considered to be the first modern English detective novel.
