A rose thrown in Dickens’s grave with Dr Leon Litvack. Charles Dickens Museum video.



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.
