Armadale (Italian Edition) by Wilkie Collins

By Wilkie Collins

Dopo il successo de l. a. donna in bianco, il romanzo dell’estate 2015 secondo Antonio d’Orrico, proponiamo Armadale, un altro capolavoro di Wilkie Collins, il padre riconosciuto del genere poliziesco.

Romanzo innovativo, con una protagonista incredibilmente maligna, definito da T.S. Eliot il miglior libro dell’autore. Quando l’anziano Allan Armadale fa una confessione terribile in punto di morte, non immagina nemmeno lontanamente le ripercussioni che ne seguiranno: il segreto che rivela coinvolge l. a. misteriosa Lydia Gwilt, tentatrice dai capelli rosso fuoco, bigama, dipendente dal laudano e avvelenatrice di mariti. I suoi maliziosi intrighi carburano los angeles trama di questo dramma appassionante: una storia di identità confuse, maledizioni ereditate, rivalità amorose, spionaggio, denaro… e assassinio. Il personaggio di Lydia Gwilt orripilò i critici dell’epoca, al punto che un recensore los angeles descrisse come «una delle donne maligne più recidive di sempre, i cui espedienti e le cui brame hanno infangato los angeles narrativa». Resta fra le più enigmatiche e affascinanti donne del diciannovesimo secolo, e il cuore nero di questo sensazionale romanzo vittoriano.
