The Moonstone

Third Edition

Wilkie Collins
Edited by Francis O'Gorman

Oxford World's Classics

  • The text is that of the 1871 corrected edition
  • The Introduction and Notes take into account the enormous amount of new material previously unavailable, including Collins's Letters, searchable periodicals, and publication of manuscript material
  • The Introduction sees the novel as a bravura exploration of mistaken judgments; as a plot that strikingly reflected Collins's own private life; and as a dazzling meditation on what can, but also importantly, cannot be merely made into sense
  • Three appendices provide a cartoon reaction to the conclusion of the novel in 1875; a detailed review of the dramatized version in 1877; and the long letter of advice that Collins received about how to manage the end of the novel

New to this Edition:

  • New introduction, select bibliography and explanatory notes
