Little Dorrit

by Charles Dickens

Upon its publication in 1857, Little Dorrit immediately outsold any of Dickens's previous books. The story of William Dorrit, imprisoned for debt in Marshalsea Prison, and his daughter and helpmate, Amy, or Little Dorrit, the novel charts the progress of the Dorrit family from poverty to riches. In his Introduction, David Gates argues that "intensity of imagination is the gift from which Dickens's other great attributes derive: his eye and ear, his near-universal empathy, his ability to entertain both a sense of the ridiculous and a sense of ultimate significance."This Modern Library Paperback Classic is set from the text of the 1857 edition.From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Mystery of Edwin Drood

by Charles Dickens

The Mystery of Edwin Drood is the final novel by Charles Dickens. The novel was left unfinished at the time of Dickens' death, and readers have often speculated how it might have ended. The novel is named after Edwin Drood, one of the characters, 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 fiancee, and has also caught the eye of the high-spirited and hot-tempered Neville Landless, who comes from Ceylon with his twin sister, Helena, who immediately makes an enemy of Drood. It is hinted strongly that Jasper is the murderer of Drood, who is missing at the end of the extant text, but it is not known whether Dickens had a surprise in mind. The story is set in Cloisterham, a lightly fictionalised Rochester, and feelingly evokes the atmosphere of the town as much as its streets and buildings. Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Nuestro amigo común

by Charles Dickens

Un joven se encamina a Londres para aceptar una herencia paterna que, según estipula el testamento, tan solo podrá disfrutar si se casa con Bella Wilfer, una hermosa muchacha a la que nunca ha conocido. Poco antes, sin embargo, aparece flotando en el Támesis un cadáver que la policía identifica con el joven heredero. Es el principio de una onda que afectará a toda la sociedad londinense. En Nuestro amigo común, Dickens demostró todo el vigor de su prosa y de su imaginación en un deslumbrante ejercicio de virtuosismo literario.«Los comienzos de las novelas de Dickens suelen ser memorables, pero ninguno supera el primer capítulo de Nuestro amigo común, penúltima novela que escribió y última que terminó. Llevados por la barca del pescador de cadáveres, nos parece entrar en el reverso del mundo.»ITALO CALVINO
