The Mystery of Edwin Drood (1870), an exploration of life in an English cathedral town, treats opium, hypnotism, violent passion, and murder, but the mystery announced by the title remains unsolved, as Dickens died before completing this final work. Dickens contracted to provide twelve monthly serial parts, but as a result of Dickens’s death, the novel was published in six installments, appearing between April and September 1870. Charles Collins designed the wrapper for the monthly parts, and Luke Fildes provided the illustrations.
