dc.description.abstractThis study addresses the critical tendency to view Wilkie Collins’s early novels, Basil, Hide and Seek, and The Dead Secret, as failed attempts at writing The Woman in White. I propose that these novels deserve more attention, as they demonstrate Collins’s technical concerns in creating a novel of suspense, specifically those related to narrative construction and narratorial presence. I first explore how the early novels serve as experimentations with technique and conclude by discussing how Collins’s narrative strategies in The Woman in White and The Moonstone stem from his findings in the earlier novels.
