Wilkie Collins – An Introduction
Wilkie Collins was born on 8th January 1824 at 11 New Cavendish Street in Marylebone, London. A novelist, playwright and author of short stories, William Wilkie Collins was a popular figure in Victorian literature and this was further enhanced by his charm and flamboyant lifestyle.
He was a friend of Charles Dickens and eventually they collaborated on several projects and magazines. His own vast talents outshone most other literary figures of the day and he is credited with the introduction of the modern detective story namely ‘The Woman In White’.
Other notable achievements were ‘The Moonstone’, ‘All Year Round’ and ‘Amadale’. In all Wilkie Collins wrote some 30 novels, 14 plays, over 60 short stories and at least 100 non-fiction essays.
He died from a paralytic stroke on 23rd September 1889, at 82 Wimpole Street, and was buried at Kensal Green Cemetery in West London.
