《月亮宝石》是英国侦探文学的创始作,也是英国文学大师柯林斯的代表作,故事情节惊险曲折,结局出人意外。作者威廉·威尔基·柯林斯,与狄更斯同时代的作家,两个都受到美国作家爱伦·坡的影响,柯林斯的作品更接受现代的侦探小说。

《月亮宝石》是威廉·威尔基·柯林斯的第一部侦探小说。这是一个由一颗巨大的钻石引起的曲折离奇的故事。月亮宝石—印度世代相传的一颗钻石。一个英国军官从印度佛寺掠走了这颗宝石,于是,这颗价值连城的宝石便传到了英国。此后,这颗被诅咒的宝石夺走了许多它的拥有者的生命。令人生畏的印度人若隐若现的身影,紧追着这颗宝石。

The Moonstone (1868) by Wilkie Collins is a 19th-century British epistolary novel, generally considered the first detective novel in the English language. The Moonstone and The Woman in White are considered Wilkie Collins’ best novels. Besides creating many of the ground rules of the detective novel, The Moonstone also reflected Collins’ enlightened social attitudes in his treatment of the servants in the novel.

威廉·威尔基·柯林斯(1824——1892年)生于伦敦,是继爱伦·坡之后,英国文学史上又一位侦探小说家。他的第一部书是记述其父生平的《威廉·柯林斯的一生》。柯林斯一生创作颇多,不少作品在维多利亚时代最风行的杂志《家常话》上发表。代表作为《白衣女人》、《月亮宝石》、《新济良所》。其他如《可怜的芬区小姐》、《一个无赖的一生》、《黑袍》等均有影响。

IN the first part of Robinson Crusoe, at page one hundred and twenty-nine, you will find it thus written:
