Counter
Wilkie Collins's intriguing story about a blind girl, Lucilla Finch, and the identical twins who both fall in love with her, has the exciting complications of his better-known novels but it also overturns conventional expectations. Using a background of myth and fairy-tale to expand the
boundaries of nineteenth-century realist fiction, Collins gives one of the best accounts in fiction of blindness and its implications.
