Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Wilkie Collins was an English novelist, poet, and playwright writing in the mid 19th century. His writing was very popular consisting of 27 novels, 50 short stories, 15 plays, and over 100 poems. His best-known works were The Woman in White, The Moonstone and Armadale. Poor Miss Finch tells the story of a blind girl not is the syrupy style of a Pollyanna but in realistic terms. Collins says, ôAs for the object which I have had in view in writing this story, it is, I hope, plain enough to speak for itself. I subscribe to the article of belief, which declares, that the conditions of human happiness are independent of bodily affliction, and that it is even possible for bodily affliction itself to take its place among the ingredients of happiness. These are the views which "Poor Miss Finch" is intended to advocate--and this is the impression which I hope to leave on the mind of the reader when the book is closed.ö
