    Paperback ¼ Basil PDF ✓ basil kindle, Basil MOBI I am now about to relate the story of an error innocent in its beginning guilty in its progress fatal in its results All hail serendipity I did not know of the existence of Wilkie Collins’s novel Basil until a few days ago when I finished reading William Godwin’s Caleb Williams and saw Collins’s novel cited as analogous to Godwin’s in respect of its subject matter That prompted me to follow it up and I’m very glad I didThe only works by Wilkie Collins I had read before are his great novels of the 1860s The Woman in White Armadale No Name and The Moonstone all superb Basil is early—it dates from 1852—and I can’t say it is as good as the later works You can see all the same elements here but they haven’t yet shaken down and resolved themselves into a harmonious composite there is something jarring a

    Paperback ¼ Basil PDF ✓ basil kindle, Basil MOBI45There is something I love about a Wilkie Collins novel I think it is the way he builds the mystery and suspense without any overtly horrible occurrences I thought Basil rather soft headed and unsympathetic in the beginning but as the story progressed I began to feel real concern for this young man pretty much trapped in a mess of his own making I decided early on that the father was not going to be as unforgiving as the son believed but Wilkie Collins’ characters seldom do what we think they will do which is part of the enjoyment of reading him and I found the father as exasperating as the sister was kind The story depends very heavily on chance and fate to draw these tragedy bound characters into one another’s spheres When you have accepted that element you must concede that anyone would be as foolish and headstr

    Paperback ¼ Basil PDF ✓ basil kindle, Basil MOBIAfter a couple dull disappointing tales by Wilkie this melodramatic racy little romp restored my faith in the old boyEven for a second novel it displays a lot of the traits one expects from Collins in his later mature works There's social commentary aplenty a shady female and sexual shenanigansThe title character's a nice guy who makes all the wrong decisions involving all the wrong people One could argue he's a bit of a dullard And you'd be right But he's a likable trusting dullard and he gets a real raw deal from his daddy because of ridiculous customs of tradition among blood aristocratsThe only thing knocking it down to 4 stars was the laborious epilogue that shifted from Basil's POV to a series of letters by people who involved in the last stages of Basil's rotten adventure It took the wind out of the sails of the story's perspective and I thought it
