Dickens’s Manuscript Edits

Dickens’s manuscripts are getting a high tech reveal, allowing scholars to see what Dickens erased or crossed out in the manuscript pages of his work. The Independent reports that the Victoria and Albert Museum have done this technique to The Chimes already. Gawker has a nice  tongue in cheek commentary on why we may want to leave Dickens alone. Why they choose The Chimes is still a mystery–not Dickens’s best work.
