ANTONINA

 

 

OR

 

THE FALL OF
ROME

 

Antonina
was Collins’ first novel, published in 1850. Its success gave him at once a recognised place among the writers of fiction of that time, including Dickens, Thackeray and Bulwer. It also led Collins to abandon a career of law and make a profession of novel writing. Yet, curiously enough, the success of Antonina did not tempt him to venture again in the historical genre, as all of his following novels were modern.
