Overview

T. S. Eliot's appreciation of Armadale still stands. The third of Wilkie Collins's four great novels of the 1860s, coming after The Woman in White and No Name and immediately before The Moonstone, Armadale is quintessentially a novel of its decade. It deals with the emergence of the autonomous, sexually active woman from the dichotomies of Madonna and Magdalen; with the legal tangles of the unsatisfactory marriage laws; with the perception of the growing role of scientific intrusion into the privacy of the individual psyche. Above all, it explores the divided self, and the need to acknowledge the darker side of the personality: a modern theme grafted on to a traditional melodrama, and worked out with all Collins's skill in handling a complex and exciting plot.

I really enjoyed this book! Well written, with characters that are true to life even in our present time. This novel's plot, the players, their actions and motivations must have caused an uproar at the time of publicaction. Yet then and now is a superior work of fiction about the virtues and vices of our fickle human hearts!
