When a mystery tale failed to reveal its mystery, it will open an unlimited room for discussion. The Mystery of Edwin Drood qualifies this. I have just finished it yesterday for Celebrating Dickens, and now have a lot of unanswered questions, and have been playing ‘detective’ to try to answer it. I think it would be fun too to hear other’s theories and ideas on it too. So, if you have read this last and unfinished novel of Dickens, let’s have a discussion on The Mystery of Edwin Drood through this post. For you who haven’t read it, you better skip this post, as it will give you many spoilers! You can still join us later when you have read the book though...
- Everyone is invited here, whether or not you are participating in Celebrating Dickens.
- We will have the discussion via comment box.
- I will start one or two topics, then you can post your own idea, response or theory upon it by replying the comment.
- If you want to discuss something apart from my topic, you can start it by posting a new comment.
- It will be better if you give title to your comments to help others get to the subject easier.
- To follow the discussions, you can “subscribe by mail” all comments in this post (just click the link below the comment box).
- There have been a lot of theories on this from Dickens’ critics, but I invite you to have your own imagery of the story.
So….let’s imagine and discuss!
