The Drood Case by Felix Aylmer

There are two ways of looking at Edwin Drood. On the one hand there are those who read it as a puzzle to be solved; on the other, there are those to whom it is Dickens’s last novel, which happened to be unfinished, and which might be thought to be either the climax of his career or merely the gesture “of a man already three quarters dead.” Most of the writers about Drood come in the first category; most of the readers, even though they may not realize it, come in the second. Clearly it is “a mystery” and “not a history,” as Dickens told his sister-in-law. But there are two mysteries to be solved. One is how the plot would have developed if the book had been finished. The other is how the novel would have fitted into the pattern of Dickens’s whole development. Sir Felix Aylmer’s The Drood Case gives a fascinating analysis of the plot; . It offers a brilliant, hypothetical outline of how the tale might have been written, but is bound to leave the greatest doubt whether such a tale could ever have been written by Dickens.
