Collins's Poor Miss Finch was published in 1872. The protagonist is a blind girl with whom two identical twins are in love. Identical, that is, except for the fact that one of them is bright blue. Early reviewers noted, with undisguised disappointment, the novel's lack of immoral titillation: it's a sensation novel but also simply a great story, one that explores profound psychological and metaphysical questions about the experience of blindness and the meaning of vision.
