The Woman in White (Penguin Classics)

The Woman in White (Penguin Classics)

Wilkie Collins


The girl in White famously opens with Walter Hartright's eerie stumble upon on a moonlit London street. Engaged as a drawing grasp to the gorgeous Laura Fairlie, Walter is drawn into the sinister intrigues of Sir Percival Glyde and his "charming" pal count number Fosco, who has a style for white mice, vanilla bonbons and poison. 

Pursuing questions of id and madness alongside the trails and corridors of English nation homes and the madhouse, The lady in White is the 1st and so much influential of the Victorian style that mixed Gothic horror with mental realism.
