    Man and Wife ePUB ¶ Man and PDF/EPUB ² wife book, Man and free, Man and Wife PDFEPUBMy recent reading of Wilkie Collins’s Man and Wife was a great illustration of what a good idea it can be to come to novels in a state of blithe ignorance without any idea of how they are conventionally regarded Published in 1870 Man and Wife is apparently often seen as representing an early instance of the later Collins’s tendency to centre his novels around social issues a choice that is seen as signalling a decline in literary uality In Swinburne’s words ‘What brought good Wilkie’s genius near perdition Some demon whispered “Wilkie have a mission”’Fortunately I had no idea of any of this at the time I read the novel and I didn’t find the novel’s social issue focus offputting In fact I liked it very much Collins drills in on certain issues of marital law in Ireland and Scotland which could and did

    Man and Wife ePUB ¶ Man and PDF/EPUB ² wife book, Man and free, Man and Wife PDFEPUBYet another Wilkie Collins years ahead of its time Seriously why does everyone think Charles Dickens is the greatest English Victorian novelist After The Law and the Lady's feminist heroine we now have a novel which deals with the terrible situation many 19th century women found themselves in when they realised they'd married a complete pig Social commentary wrapped up in a gripping storyline with than its fair share of humour considering the emotional subject mattter

    Man and Wife ePUB ¶ Man and PDF/EPUB ² wife book, Man and free, Man and Wife PDFEPUBWhen Dickens was producing his scathing attack on the English chancery system Bleak House or his expose of the boarding school system Nicholas Nickleby his good friend Wilkie Collins produced this morality tale about the marriage laws in some parts Scotland Ireland of the British empire in the 19th century And he doesn't let the institution of marriage off easily showing how for a woman a marriage was a form of legalized bondage which permitted the husband to essentially steal all of a woman's own property Today when so much noise is heard about the

    Man and Wife ePUB ¶ Man and PDF/EPUB ² wife book, Man and free, Man and Wife PDFEPUBThey don't write 'em like this anyWhat the endorsers of 'the good old days' tend to forget and the view explored through the character of Sir Patrick is that the past has always looked better than the present So as a modern reader of fiction from the 1800's it was interesting to see that although this period of time might seem idealized to us now it wasn't so for the people living then Of course this seemed common sense once I started thinking about it but I just needed it pointed out to meOne of the things I love most about reading books from earlier periods is that it always provides an interesting insight to popular attitudes beliefs and insights at the time For example I thought the concern held by Sir Patrick and evidently Wilkie Collins himself about the degeneration of England being brought about by a 'fetish' amongst the young generation for physical exercise was fasc

    Man and Wife ePUB ¶ Man and PDF/EPUB ² wife book, Man and free, Man and Wife PDFEPUBI enjoyed the story Wilkie always throws in a nice little twist and a bit of irony for spice Too long by far though I would have enjoyed it much if it had been at least 100 pages shorter It's a light read but a heavy weight

    Man and Wife ePUB ¶ Man and PDF/EPUB ² wife book, Man and free, Man and Wife PDFEPUBWilkie Collins is known as one of the fathers of the mystery with The Moonstone and The Woman in White both of which I would recommend In this work Collins also shows himself as a master of suspense while engaging in some pointed social commentary as wellThe suspense and much of the commentary is built around the Scottish marriage laws of the time which recognized irregular marriages in which men and women who wittingly or not represented themselves as married were indeed married under law The plot develops around Geoffrey Delamayn who has gotten Anne Winchester in trouble and is compelled to meet her and marry her at a Scottish inn Delamayn conveniently has to return to London because of an ailing father and se
