No Name

‘Mr Vanstone’s daughters are Nobody’s Children’.

Magdalen Vanstone and her sister Norah learn the true meaning of social stigma in Victorian England only after the traumatic discovery that their dearly loved parents, whose sudden deaths have left them orphans, were not married at the time of their birth.

Magdalen Vanstone and her sister Norah learn the true meaning of social stigma in Victorian England only after the traumatic discovery that their dearly loved parents, whose sudden deaths have left them orphans, were not married at the time of their birth. Disinherited by law and brutally ousted from Combe-Raven, the idyllic country estate which has been their peaceful home since childhood, the two young women are left to fend for themselves. While the submissive Norah follows a path of duty and hardship as a governess, her high-spirited and rebellious younger sister has made other decisions. Determined to regain her rightful inheritance at any cost, Magdalen uses her unconventional beauty and dramatic talent in recklessly pursuing her revenge. Aided by the audacious swindler Captain Wragge, she braves a series of trials leading up to the climactic test: can she trade herself in marriage to the man she loathes?

Written in the early 1860s, between The Woman in White and The Moonstone, No Name was rejected as immoral by critics of its time, but is today regarded as a novel of outstanding social insight, showing Collins at the height of his powers.

    Everything in the Vanstone household is just tickety boo until a) father dear is killed in a train crash and b) mama dear dies in childbirth so c) their two lovely daughters are orphaned and there are complications whereby the estate is inherited by the estranged older brother who couldn’t give a monkey’s about the two lovely sisters so what are they to do? Well, actually, Wilkie is only interested in Magdalen, the sexier of the two, so let’s rephrase that, what is she to do?

    Does she

    a) upload th

    Does she

    a) upload the demos she has been making of her own songs in her bedroom onto youtube, get discovered, go viral and get to be the Victorian Female Bieber? We all remember the old broadside ballad

    Come all you roving gentlemen and listen to my song
    All about the Female Bieber, it won’t detain you long
    Her waist it was so slender and her fingers long and small
    And she played upon the mandoline the sweetest of them all

    b) Take a cabriolet to King’s Cross and consort her saucy wares in that notorious environs, become the reknowned consort of the vile and famous, and conclude by wielding unfathomable power behind the scenes in the highest circles, enabling her to reach down and crush the evil estranged brother like an ant?

    c) get entangled in some ridiculous, unlikely and completely delicious plot twists and turns involving becoming an actress, perpetrating brilliant confidence tricks, fake marriage proposals, impersonations and the like with one of the great is-he-a-villain-or-is-he-a-hero characters in English fiction (Captain Wragge)?

    Well, it’s c). Because a) is anachronistic, this is not steampunk, and b) is interesting but a bit too Zola and not as fun as c).

    To be read with an eager smile and a sachet of jellied eels.

    Love you Mr Collins! You never cease to amaze me with your writing and uncanny ability to suck me into your books which look to be a million pages, but read as if they are a few hundred. I so enjoy the fact that you have always shown a respect and concern for women and you present them, while often flawed, as people you admire and trust. Oftentimes Victorian authors belittle their female protagonists and have inauspicious fates awaiting those who do not walk the Victorian line. (hear that Mr Dic

    Within this story lies loving parents, sisters, and deceit. Our main protagonist, Magdalen, and her sister, Norah, are given crushing news after their parents’ death that rips the ground out literally from under them and propels them into an environment that they were little prepared for. Collins presents this story with what one can tell, his opposition to the laws of the court which will govern these girls destinies. He also provides a truly cruel uncle and his son who add the human aspect of unkindness and hatred.

    Magdalen takes it upon herself, through any means to right the wrong that has been done to her sister and herself. She becomes a worthy and devious woman to a quite worthy adversary, one Mrs Lecount, a woman one can grow to hate quite easily. How Magdalen succeeds and fails is the gist of this novel and as always Mr Collins is able to weave out a tale that keeps the reader going through page after page. He is the master storyteller, never confusing one with lots of rhetoric or too many words.

    I am always amazed that Mr Collins is not taught more in schools and is somewhat overlooked in the world of Victorian writers. He was a wonderful author who always thrills me and makes me very happy that I have read his works. Thanks, Mr Collins, for again keeping me up in the dead of night! You are well worth burning the midnight oil.

    Before Wilkie Collins became an enormously successful novelist in the mid-nineteenth century, he studied law with the intent of becoming an attorney. Although he completed his studies he never actually practiced. His knowledge and interest in the field is revealed in the plots of many of his novels. No Name is an example of Collins’ training in estate law and the various intricacies of the rules and loopholes during that period in mid 19th century England.

    The opening plot of No Name presents an interesting family problem. Two daughters discover that their parents are not married. This unusual family situation presents a very serious dilemma for them as the laws of the time do not allow them to entitlement of their father’s inheritance. Instead, the inheritance goes to their estranged uncle who is not fond of his brother (their father) and anyone in the immediate family. Legal action would be futile. One of these sisters is determined to get it back. This woman, even though according to the laws of Victorian England she was born with “no name”, will stop at nothing to ensure that her father’s inheritance is hers. What does she do? If I told you I’d have to kill you.

    description

    No Name is the fourth of Wilkie Collin’s four major works that I have read. This is another great read that is just as exciting and suspenseful as the authors more famous work. Next up on the list is the Law and the Lady. I can’t wait.
