"Dans la fournaise de l'été, en ce milieu du XIXe siècle, William Hartright, jeune professeur de dessin émérite, s'apprête à quitter Londres pour enseigner l'aquarelle à deux jeunes filles de l'aristocratie, dans le Cumberland. Il laisse derrière lui la vie trépidante de la ville et ses étranges incidents, comme cette rencontre en pleine nuit avec une jeune femme terrorisée, toute de blanc vêtue, semblant fuir un invisible danger... Mais la campagne anglaise, malgré ses charmes bucoliques, n'apaise pas le jeune William autant qu'il le souhaiterait. La demeure de Limmeridge recèle en effet de bien lourds secrets, et lorsque resurgit la mystérieuse dame en blanc, il est bien difficile d'affirmer qu'il ne s'agit pas d'un présage funeste... Dans ce roman, considéré comme son chef-d'oeuvre, Wilkie Collins met en scène, entre Londres et la campagne anglaise, une énigme victorienne des plus mystérieuses." (Source : quatrième de couverture).

Work Description

The Woman in White famously opens with Walter Hartright's eerie encounter on a moonlit London road. Engaged as a drawing master to the beautiful Laura Fairlie, Walter is drawn into the sinister intrigues of Sir Percival Glyde and his 'charming' friend Count Fosco, who has a taste for white mice, vanilla bonbons and poison. Pursuing questions of identity and insanity along the paths and corridors of English country houses and the madhouse, The Woman in White is the first and most influential of the Victorian genre that combined Gothic horror with psychological realism.
