The Mystery of Edwin Drood is the final novel by Charles Dickens. The novel was left unfinished at the time of Dickens' death and thus how it might have ended remains unknown. The novel is named after Edwin Drood but it mostly tells the story of his uncle, a choirmaster named John Jasper, who is in love with his pupil, Rosa Bud. Miss Bud is Drood's fiancée, and has also caught the eye of the high-spirited and hot-tempered Neville Landless, who comes from Ceylon with his twin sister, Helena.
This edition publishes the first 23 chapters originally written by Dicken's

'The Mystery of Edwin Drood, ' Dickens's last novel, lay unfinished at his death. Speculation remains rife as to its probable conclusion, but should not distract the reader from the merits of what was actually written. The ancient city of Cloisterham, its human frailty, and the lawful life, is an effective background for what Dickens's daughter called a tale of 'the tragic secrets of the human heart'. This edition contains Dickens's working plans for the novel, the original design, and eight of the original illustrations. The text is that of the Clarendon edition.About the Author:
