Ronald WrightIolani's value lies in what it shows of Collin's growth. Many of its themes-strong, wronged women, ruthless patriarchal figures, bloodshed, sympathy for the weak - were developed more successfully in later works. The introduction by Ira Nadel, a professor of English at the University of British Columbia, is worth the price of admission. His account of Collins' life and influences, and of the manuscript's history , is (both fortunately and unfortunately) more compelling than the breathless tale itself.
