The Mystery of Edwin Drood (The Novels of Charles Dickens: An Introduction by David Timson)
David Timson talks about Charles Dickens, much loved for his great contribution to classic English Literature.
Left unfinished after Dickens died in 1870, The Mystery of Edwin Drood centres on Edwin Drood’s uncle, John Jasper, and his love for Rosa Bud, Edwin’s fiancee. Set in the dark, fictional cathedral city of Cloisterham, the novel is awash with guilt, disguise and mystery. It contains some fine writing, and just before his death, Dickens left an indication of where the plot was going, which will be included.
