London (United Kingdom), November 14 (EFE).- (Photo: Guillermo Garrido) The deep friendship, travel and collaboration between Charles Dickens and the author Wilkie Collins will, starting tomorrow, Wednesday, be the focus of an exhibition in London that will allow us to discover the “man and friend” behind The great English writer. “Mutual Friends: The Adventures of Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins,” open to the public until February 25, explores the close relationship between the two literary geniuses, sharing secrets, visits around the world, and theatrical productions. Resource images from the exhibition ‘Mutual Friends: The Adventures of Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins’ at the Charles Dickens Museum in London. Includes collections from Emma Harper, Curator of the Charles Dickens Museum: 1. This is not just one great writer, but two great writers, between Charles Dickens (1812-1870) and his friend Wilkie Collins (1824-1880). I think people can identify with them individually through their work. Wilkie Collins, “Moonstone” and “The Lady in White”; But not many people know that (both authors) collaborated together and were good friends. 2. I think the relationship has changed. First of all, I think of Charles Dickens as a mentor to Wilkie Collins; Where Wilkie Collins presents his works, while Charles has already become a famous writer (…) and learns from Charles Dickens: Wilkie is keen to learn from this great writer. Then they start collaborating and you can see that when that collaboration happens, they influence each other. 3. We get close to them as friends, we explore their friendship, they correspond, we have a wonderful letter from Charles Dickens to Wilkie, the year he breaks up with his wife, and his birthday is the next day and he doesn’t feel like making a big deal, but he says, “Wilkie, can you To come with me to Brighton (southern England) to cheer me up?” 4. A wonderful letter that Charles sends to his friend after his separation from (his wife) Catherine. His birthday is the next day and he doesn’t feel like doing much, but he says: “Wilkie, can you come with me to Brighton (southern England) to cheer me on?” 5. They are Victorian writers, and we are trying to present them as the man and friends behind all these great novels.
