No Name Author Wilkie Collins Summary ↠ 2 Read ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ê Wilkie Collins Ths Disinherited and ousted from their estate they must fend for themselves and either resign themselves to their fate or determine to recover their wealth by whatever means Wilkie CollinsI should mention that this guy is one hell of an interesting writer if I can go by anything said by Dan Simmons in Drood since the author is the main characterPutting that all aside which I probably should as it is a really really bad idea in the first place I must tamp down my initial presentiments and judge this book by its own merits Hard So hardWhat we ve got here is a very sensationalist novel decrying all the worst aspects of inheritance law and the stigma surrounding bastards Or bastardettes as the case may be These poor girls are cruelly separated from their inheritance and soon after losing both papa and momma are beset with poverty as well Fortunately we re introduced to Magdalen the most vivacious and forthgoing actress of her age to only show in a single production only to use her talents across every scheme gambit grift she can possibly imagine with her new friend Captain Rag to GET HER MONEY BACKAnd when we get to this part of the tale I ll admit I was pretty much hooked What a rollercoaster There s death after death and a revolving door fortune and so many schemes and setbacks and you KNOW the servant is the Biggest Bad in the tale And just when you think that having to battle through household after household in this drama wasn t enough we re slammed in the face with utter desolationIndeed for Magdalen there will never be a name she can call her own Or will thereThe moral of the story is pretty much as sensationalist as you can get for the time Wilkie Collins is HOT for 1862 Please don t expect ACTUAL murdering going on or selling herself on the streets or anything LEWD like a close up description of the skin texture of a frogOh wait maybe you can expect that last oneuite fun uite fun It would make a really fantastic BBC production I think

No Name Author Wilkie Collins Summary ↠ 2 Read ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ê Wilkie Collins Rs It is the story of two sisters Magdalen and Norah who discover after the deaths of their dearly beloved parents that the parents were not married at the time of their bir No Name is yet another beautiful book by Wilkie Collins Touching on a different legal concept the book takes uite a turn from his famous work The Woman in White Merging a legal concept with a heart touching story seems to be Wilkie Collins s style It is truly appealing especially when he exposes the gaps in law by which the very persons who need the protection of the law are left unprotected No Name is a touching story of a woman s uest to redress an injustice that has caused her and her sister to become outcasts penniless and robbed of their rightful inheritance due to a mere legality When they were orphaned Magdalen and Norah learn the bitter truth of their legitimacy Their parents were unmarried at the time of their birth and as such in the eyes of law they are illegitimate children in other words they are nobody s children and have no name In the absence of law or any other person to help them Magdalen makes it her cause to remedy the wrong done to her and her sister Norah by any means The principal heroine of the story is Magdalen She is strong willed and impetuous Her vindictive nature is aroused when her uncle declines to take notice of them due to their illegitimacy and to provide for them or assist them Stung to the core she resolves to recover the fortune by any means In the absence of law as a protector deception becomes her protector and weapon by which to achieve her end Magdalen is not a heroine of Victorian liking She is a criminal and a sinner in the eyes of a rigid Victorian society Her conduct is far too modern for Victorian understanding But Magdalen could be a modern heroine The modern society though cannot condone her conduct for no decent society can sanction deception would understand Magdalen better would appreciate the circumstances that drove her to act as she did However Collins doesn t abandon Magdalene to face Victorian social justice He shows that Magdalene sees the reason of her follies under the kind guidance of her sister and her new love and that she was repentant at the end and is determined to become a better person worthy of her sister and husband Norah is a complete contrast to Magdalene Her journey through their misfortune is one of patience and endurance With her goodness and righteous conduct she wins the battle with dignity So Norah is a Victorian heroine Both these characters were likable in their own way but Magdalen was the better heroine for me despite all her sins Her character had such colour and vibrancy so that the connection readers feel with her is instantaneous From the supporting characters the two villains one male and the other female were the best Their cunning battle to outsmart the other was uite interesting to read All the above would have failed however to make this book a fascinating read if it wasn t combined with Collins s beautiful prose and his sensitive and sincere writing The descriptive writing paints a complete picture of the events and characters of the story the cleverly executed plot and smooth flow of the story hold fast the readers to the story the touch of humour here and there adds a bit of lightness to otherwise a grave story the compassionate writing where Magdalen was concerned emotionally moves the readers Collins has adopted a new style of writing here He tells his story through a combination of narrative chronicle and epistolary writing This method was very refreshing It gives the reader a break from the monotony of the narrative I very much enjoyed this style The story the legal concepts the characters and Collins s beautiful writing made reading No Name pleasurable and memorable This novel is truly a literary gem I was very much surprised to learn that it is a lesser known work by the author I personally think that it is one great work by Collins I feel privileged to have read it
