A house to letWas first published in the special Christmas issue of 1858 of the Household Words magazine, of which the writer was director.Dickens requested the collaboration of three authors who wrote regularly in the magazine, Adelaide Anne Procter, Elizabet Gaskell and Wilkie Collins. The object of such literary diversity was the publication of a number of the Household Words magazine dedicated to a central theme that became the focus of the contributions of all these authors.A house for rent revolves around a mysterious building that Sophonisba, the old woman who tells (or begins and ends up telling) the story, watches from her window. That house for rent is dark and desolate, and nobody seems to inhabit it; urged by curiosity, he will ask for the help of his butler, Trottle, and his best friend, Jabez Jarber, to find out why the current state of the building and what lies behind its walls. Six different texts will form the puzzle and shed light on that dark house in perpetual rent.
