In this short video, Dr Leon Litvack explores the public impact of Dickens’s death. He focuses on the portrait of Dickens on his deathbed by John Everett Millais, and on a rose thrown into his grave by an anonymous member of the funeral crowd. Both objects are now part of the Charles Dickens Museum’s collection (dickensmuseum.com). Permission to reproduce granted by Charles Dickens Museum.
