Charles Dickens's The Mystery of Edwin Drood (1870), what Earle Davis called “
the world's greatest mystery story” and Sylvère Monod termed “the most perfect
mystery in literature, in that it will be mysterious for ever,” is perhaps the most
famous unfinished novel in the English language.2 As an enigmatic fragment, the
novel begs for conclusion. But despite the repeated attempts by critics over the
last century to conclude the novel, it must remain ...

Serialisation had a palpably relaxing effect on Thackeray's artistic concentration.
Trollope, a harsh critic, compared the other novelist unfavourably with himself in
this respect: I knew, from what I read from month to month, that this hurried
publication of incompleted work was frequently, I might perhaps say always,
adopted by the leading novelists of the day. That such has been the case, is
proved by the fact that Dickens, Thackeray, and Mrs. Gaskell died with unfinished
novels, of which ...

MAURICE DENIS BY ALL ACCOUNTS, Aubrey Beardsley was among the most
literate of the great Victorian illustrators. Like his contemporaries Charles Ricketts
and Laurence Housman, he approached the task of illustration through the
sensibilities of a reader. And like them, he ultimately chafed at the limitations
imposed on him by the role of illustrator, spending the best part of two years
writing an unfinished "romantic novel" ( The Story of Venus and Tannhauser) that
he hoped ...

But she was Victorian; and since I always saw her in the same static long shot,
with her back turned, she represented a reproach on the Victorian age. An
outcast. I didn't know her crime, but I wished to protect her. That is, I began to fall
in love with her. Or with her stance. I don't know which. (Fowles, "Notes" 136) In
the introduction to his well-known essay "Notes on an Unfinished Novel" John
Fowles tells of the "pregnant female image" (137) which inspired him to write The

aloud while he wrote. His early biographer john Forster offers several instances
of characters drawn from real people: 'Mrs Gamp's original was in reality a person
hired by a most distinguished friend of his own.' The Marchioness in The Old
Curiosity Shop was based on 'the orphan girl from the Chatham workhouse' who
worked for his family when he was a boy. When writing his last, unfinished, novel
