The Mystery of Edwin Drood PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Mystery of Edwin Drood free pdf This is the "Penguin English Library Edition" of "The Mystery of Edwin Drood" by Charles Dickens. 'In the wakeful misery of the night, girded by sordid realities, or wandering through Paradises and Hells of visions...I loved you madly'. Dickens' last novel is a mystery built around a presumed crime - the murder of a nephew by his uncle. Dickens died before completing the story, leaving the mystery unsolved and encouraging successive generations of readers to turn detective. Beyond the preoccupying fact of this intriguing crime, however, the novel also offers readers a characteristically Dickensian mix of the fantastical world of the imagination and a vibrantly journalistic depiction of gritty reality. "The Penguin English Library" - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.

About Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens (1812-70) had his first, astounding success with his first novel The Pickwick Papers and never looked back. In an extraordinarily full life he wrote, campaigned and spoke on a huge range of issues, and was involved in many of the key aspects of Victorian life, by turns cajoling, moving and irritating. He completed fourteen full-length novels and volume after volume of journalism. The Mystery of Edwin Drood was Dickens's final, and tantalizingly unfinished, novel. The Pickwick Papers, Oliver Twist, Nicholas Nickleby, The Old Curiosity Shop, Barnaby Rudge, A Christmas Carol, Martin Chuzzlewit, Dombey and Son, David Copperfield, Bleak House, Hard Times, Litte Dorrit, A Tale of Two Cities, Great Expectations, and Our Mutual Friend are also published in the Penguin English Library.
