  • "The betrothal of Edwin and Rosa by their fathers when they were still young, leads to unhappiness, jealousy and violent quarrels."

  • "When young Edwin Drood mysteriously disappears from the quiet cathedral town of Cloisterham, foul play seems certain. The prime suspect is John Jasper, Edwin's uncle, who frequents the dark opium underworld and conceals a secret passion beneath his church choir respectability. Paul Scofield captures the haunting, occasionally humorous atmosphere and the many colorful characters in this unusual crime novel. Dickens' entertaining story is even more of a mystery than he intended, for he died before the work was completed."@en

  • "Edwin Drood and Rosa Budd are engaged to be married, as their parents have desired. But unbeknownst to Drood, his youthful uncle, Jasper, is deeply in love with Rosa -- so much so, in fact, that his despair has turned him into a secret opium addict. Neville Landless is also in love with Rosa, and Jasper helps feed his jealousy of Drood. Then one day Drood vanishes. Because of Jasper's assertions, Landless is held and questioned for Drood's murder but no body is found. Meanwhile, Landless' sister Helena also disappears and not long after a stranger named Datchery shows up and begins asking questions about Drood's disappearance. Suspicion seems to be following Jasper when Dickens' story stops."@en
  • "Moving from a sedate cathedral town to London's sordid opium dens, the mystery of who killed the missing Edwin Drood, or if he was actually killed at all, is finally resolved."@en
  • "This tale of murder and mystery is set among the tombs and gargoyles of Cloisterham, based on Rochester."@en
  • "Master Humphrey's Clock, besides providing the original setting for The Old Curiosity Shop and Barnaby Rudge, was the scene of Dickens's revival of Mr. Pickwick and the Wellers.\A Child's History of England is not representative of Victorian schoolroom history: filled with distrust for the 'good old days', it gives 'an unsparing picture of prolonged wickedness in high places, exposed with lurid detail and much rough sarcasm'."@en
  • "Dicken's last novel is a mystery built around a presumed crime, the murder of a nephew by his uncle. He died before completing the story, leaving the mystery unsolved and encouraging successive generations of readers to turn detective."
  • "The Mystery of Edwin Drood was left unsolved when Charles Dickens died the day after completing the sixth of twelve planned serial installments. Orphans Edwin Drood and Rosa Bud, who had been betrothed by their parents to marry when Edwin turned twenty-one, mutually agree to break the engagement. Edwin mysteriously disappears, and the story ends before we know his fate.--back cover."
  • "Sinister John Jasper foments a quarrel between his nephew, Edwin, and Neville, an admirer of Rosa, John's betrothed."
  • "Central to the plot is John Jasper: in public he is a man of integrity and benevolence; in private he is an opium addict. And while seeming to smile on the engagement of his nephew, Edwin Drood, he is, in fact, consumed by jealousy, driven to terrify the boy's fiancee and to plot the murder of Edwin himself. As in many of Dickens's greatest novels, the gulf between appearance and reality drives the action. Set in the seemingly innocuous cathedral town of Cloisterham, the story rapidly darkens with a sense of impending evil. Charles Dickens's final, unfinished novel is in many ways his most intriguing. A highly atmospheric tale of murder, The Mystery of Edwin Drood foreshadows both the detective stories of Conan Doyle and the nightmarish novels of Kafka. Though The Mystery of Edwin Drood is one of its author's darkest books, it also bustles with a vast roster of memorable'and delightfully named'minor characters: Mrs. Billikins, the landlady; the foolish Mr. Sapsea; the domineering philanthropist, Mr. Honeythunder; and the mysterious Datchery. Several attempts have been made over the years to complete the novel and solve the mystery, but even in its unfinished state it is a gripping and haunting masterpiece. (Book Jacket Status: Jacketed) From the Hardcover edition."@en
  • "Tells of the mysterious murder of Edwin Drood in mid-nineteenth century England."
  • "This novel is a mystery story, a background of opium dens, moldering monastic crypts."@en

  • "Master Humphrey's Clock was originally a weekly magazine published by Charles Dickens between 1840 and 1841. The collection includes a number of short stories in addition to two novels: The Old Curiosity Shop and Barnaby Rudge. The eponymous character, Master Humphrey, is the most important narrator in all this series of stories, but not the only narrator. He starts the narrative by introducing himself. He is a crippled man who lives alone and who is fond of storytelling. He has a circle of friends who share the same hobby. They include a merchant, a deaf gentleman and Mr. Pickwick. They all organize weekly meetings at Master Humphrey's to read stories aloud and discuss them. The clock of the title is situated at the center of Master Humphrey's table around which the group sit. Another character named Mr. Weller decides to run another storytelling club in the house's kitchen and gathers around him the house's maid and a barber, among others. This mirror club is called Mr. Weller's Watch. In Master Humphrey's Clock, some of the characters reappear in different stories, like Mr. Pickwick. Besides, some of these short stories serve as frame narratives for other stories, which explains the importance of having the series published together."@en
  • "This book, Charles Dickens' final novel, was never completed, leaving the reader to wonder at the final fate of the characters. Edwin Drood's uncle, a choirmaster named John Jasper, falls in love with his pupil, who happens to be Drood's fiance, Rosa Bud, who is also fancied by Neville Landless, a man from Ceylon (now better known as Sri Lanka). Amid these turbulent relationships Drood mysteriously vanishes."
  • "Edwin Drood is contracted to marry Orphan Rosa, but they break the engagement off and soon afterwards Edwin disappears. Is it murder? And is his jealous uncle, a sinister choirmaster with a double life and designs on Rosa, the killer? Dickens died before completing the story, leaving the mystery unsolved and encouraging successive generations of readers to turn detective. In addition to its tantalizing crime, the novel also offers a characteristically Dickensian mix of the fantastical world of the imagination and a vibrantly journalistic depiction of gritty reality."@en
  • "Master Humphrey's Clock was a weekly periodical edited and written entirely by Charles Dickens and published from April 4, 1840-December 4, 1841. It began with a frame story in which Master Humphrey tells about himself and his small circle of friends and their penchant for telling stories."@en
  • "Handsome young Edwin Drood disappears one stormy night and the ensuing investigation turns into a battle between good and evil."
  • "Presents two serial publications: "Master Humphrey's Clock," in which an old gentleman shares stories with a group of companions, and "A Child's History of England," recounting notable events in English history from ancient times through the nineteenth century."@en
  • "Charles Dickens's classic periodical contained a frame story, several short stories, and two novels. This publication contains just the frame story and the short stories. Master Humprey, a lonely London man, decides to start up a club where the members would read aloud the manuscripts that Master Humphrey kept in an old longcase clock. The members include Mr Pickwick, who also stars in Dickens's 'The Pickwick Papers'."
  • "The Mystery of Edwin Drood is the final, uncompleted novel by Charles Dickens. John Jasper is a choirmaster who is in love with one of his pupils, Rosa Bud. She is the fiancee of his nephew, Edwin Drood. A hot-tempered man from Ceylon also becomes interested in her and he and Drood take an instant dislike to one another. Later, Drood disappears, and as Dickens never finished the novel, Drood's fate remains a mystery indeed."@en
