GhostsDickens s short story To Be Read at Dusk was published in The Keepsake in 1852 I did not know what The Keepsake was and so had a look at Wikipedia where I learned that it was a literary annual running from 1828 to 1857 containing short fiction poems essays and engraved illustrations Apparently one of the target groups were young ladies which I would never have guessed from the story itself The Keepsake was started by the engraver Charles Heath and though as to Wikipedia the literature published is often regarded second rate among the contributors there were a lot of well known and important authors of the Romantic period Among the contributors of the 1829 edition you can find Sir Walter Scott Coleridge Wordsworth Shelley and Southey Nevertheless after reading the story I had an idea why the contributions to that annual anthology could be considered second rate because To Be Read at Dusk falls short of what I am used to when I read DickensThe story starts interestingly enough making us share the perspective of the narrator who disgusted with the boasts of an American fellow traveller Dickens still seems to be under the influence of the anti Americanism he so scathingly displayed in Martin Chuzzlewit leaves the guest room and decides to listen to the talk of five couriers One two three four five There were five of themFive couriers sitting on a bench outside the convent on the summit of the Great St Bernard in Switzerland looking at the remote heights stained by the setting sun as if a mighty uantity of red wine had been broached upon the mountain top and had not yet had time to sink into the snowThis is not my simile It was made for the occasion by the stoutest courier who was a German None of the others took any notice of it than they took of me sitting on another bench on the other side of the convent door smoking my cigar like them and also like them looking at the reddened snow and at the lonely shed hard by where the bodies of belated travellers dug out of it slowly wither away knowing no corruption in that cold region This atmosphere of cold beauty of the majestic grandeur of nature apparently affects the couriers who soon start talking about supernatural experiences debating whether they can be explained away by putting them down to mere coincidence or whether something uncanny is lurking in the shadows One story centres on an English couple newly wedded the bride being haunted in her dreams by the vision of a dark remarkable looking man in black with black hair and a grey moustache a handsome man except for a reserved and secret air This face does not do anything but simply regards her from out of a veil of impenetrable darkness In the course of their honeymoon the bride makes the acuaintance of a man taken home to them by her own husband an Italian calling himself Dellombra of all names and this man as you can easily guess is the spitting image of the mysterious nightmare face The husband however takes no heed of his wife s apprehensions and so Fate takes its courseThe other story told by the German courier centres on the doppelg nger motif and the foreshadowing of the death of a relative It is not as original as the first story and it ends uite abruptly triggering the end of the whole piece which left me rather unsatisfiedThe story was not particularly scary and despite the magnificent beginning it could have been written by other writers but the Inimitable as well It also lacked Dickens s typical humour and I could not help thinking that he wrote it because for some reason or other he had agreed to contribute a piece to The Keepsake and now had to fulfil his promise
