Wilkie Collins manages to combine melodrama wives in mortal danger from their villainous husbands, ambiguous marriages with obsessive bees in his bonnet, to wit: the lax Scottish laws on what constitutes a marriage, and the degenerative effects physical activity had on Victorian health and morals.

Now I hate exercise as much as the next man more than most, actually but I have a hard time believing that Victorians were so delicately constructed that they could grievously jeopardize their health by training three months to run a four mile race.

Still, once you hack through all the didactical underbrush, there are some entertaining incidents and characters to enjoy. Jan 10, Michelle Mead rated it it was amazing. I zoomed thru this book at a pace I was not expecting as a major lover of classic literature!

Wilkie Collins is a MASTER of pacing, which I should have remembered from reading shorter works of his--but this was actually modern pacing, which was very impressive for Victorian literature, considering it was written when there were no TVs or internet, it being the entertainment. I get easily obsessed with classic authors, as I've done with Hardy, Wilde, Dostoevsky, to name a few, and now Wilkie will I zoomed thru this book at a pace I was not expecting as a major lover of classic literature!

I get easily obsessed with classic authors, as I've done with Hardy, Wilde, Dostoevsky, to name a few, and now Wilkie will be in that category for me. Excellent, reminds me why I write and gives me faith in writing that I don't feel with hardly any modern writers. Forgive me, Wilkie, for I have sinned. I almost lost my faith in you, and somewhere around the middle of the book, wanted to throw in the towel and give you a two-star rating. However, that's mostly my crazy personal preferences about romantic intrigues more on that later.

Man and Wife is Collins' dual condemnation of the state of the marriage institution in Victorian England and the problem as he saw it of too much emphasis on physical training and athleticism. The theme of legitimacy is Forgive me, Wilkie, for I have sinned. The theme of legitimacy is something he revisits often in his work, as well as the relationship between husbands and wives.

Here, we follow two women; one is Anne Silvester, whose mother also Anne Silvester was cruelly treated by her husband--left on a claim that their marriage was not valid. Anne seems fated to follow her mother's path. Her friend, Blanche mother: also named Blanche, and best friend of Anne the First , is in love with a young Englishman named Arthur.

Anne, however, is Blanche's governess, and not possessing any extraordinary beauty because, of course, that's what's important!

Ha ha ha! However, the famed athlete Geoffrey Delamare has seduced Anne, and now she's in a compromising situation read: pregnant. In a complicated series of misconceptions, should-haves, and misguided confidences, Anne, Geoffrey, Blanche, and Arthur all become entangled in the extremely messy marriage laws of the U. Marriage laws in Scotland, for example, were very lax, but respected in England.

Merely promising to marry someone is, in effect, an act of marriage.

Part 2: The Duties of Men

Blanche's uncle, Sir Patrick Lundie, becomes the hero of the story as he attempts to save Anne from a horrible fate, as well as figure out who, exactly, is married to whom. He condemns Geoffrey and his ilk for emphasizing only the physical, and thus completely neglecting the moral and spiritual aspects of the man. Collins really rips into society's obsession with physical appearance which I think a lot of modern readers can relate to!

Aside from his intricate plotting, another reason I love Collins is his fearless wit and sarcasm. His descriptions of Blanche's stepmother, Lady Julia Lundie, are hilarious and totally spot-on in their exposure of her hypocrisy and self-interest. The reason I felt discouraged and rather annoyed with this story has to do with the main theme of marriage and legitimacy. All of the problems would have been readily cleared up if people had just told the truth the first time, instead of running around saying things like, "Oh!

I cannot tell my wife what I did for her best friend, because then my wife will hate me! It is too painful! I cannot tell the truth about that letter because it goes against my code of honor!

This is my main beef with so-called romantic comedies as well. For heavens' sake! All of this mincing around the subject is painful to endure. Yes, I realize that without all of this miscommunication there would, effectually, be no story. There are many stories one can tell without all of this horrible blithering on about honor and secrets and promises and so forth.

However, that's more my personal feelings on the topic, and really doesn't reflect too much on Collins' story. I only wish that that section of the story had been shorter, and the last part, which is a real nail-biter in terms of suspense and nefarious deeds being a-planned, much longer.

I wouldn't recommend this to a first-time Collins reader, but it's fun to read if you're already familiar with some of his other, more well-known books.

As is often the case, I dithered over the rating of this one. Three seems low, four high. It's an easy read by nineteenth-century fiction standards, anyway and despite being over pages long rarely seems slow or tedious, even when it goes off on tangents. Several of the characters are fascinating, in a heightened sort of way; none are plausible, really, as people, but many are well-etched.

Sir Patrick Lundie, the satirically-inclined, clever, noble elderly lawyer who ends up really being the male protagonist, is fascinating, if perhaps not entirely consistent in how he's characterized. Indeed, at times, this book seems to shift gears abruptly, as if Collins's ideas about the book morphed as he wrote it was published serially originally, but I don't know whether it was finished before publication began, or whether he wrote it in installments. The first fifty pages or so are set a generation earlier than the rest of the novel and bear relatively little relevance to what follows, for instance.

The tone of the final third or so of the book is much darker than what came before, becoming almost gothic right down to implicit supernatural presences, though we are free to read those as the signs of a deranged mind. There's a bizarre secondary plot about how deleterious to the physical and moral health of men extensive engagement in athleticism is; why Collins wedded these two social concerns is not easy to parse, and it does not really work, though Collins's technical skills paper over the rough spots reasonably well.

Indeed, Collins is a good technician, well skilled at building suspense and heightening reader interest, though he's not quite skilled enough for readers to be unaware of how they are being manipulated. Consequently, the book probably requires a sympathetic reader. The climax involves a pretty clever take on the idea of the locked room mystery. Apr 07, Rhiannon rated it it was amazing.

In the contrasting characters of Ann Silvester and Hester Dethridge, Collins makes it plain that the then current lot of the married woman affected all classes of society.

He also uses the novel to criticise the type of man,then very much in fashion, who placed brawn above brains and physical prowess in sports as the only test of character that counted. But although Collins is using the novel to draw attention to these things , it is never at the expense of story. The tale moves through a convoluted chain of events, when innocent circumstances become fraught with unintended consequences, and someone doing a favour for a friend against their better judgement finds his whole future threatened.
