The Old Curiosity Shop is one of the most complexly framed or supplemented of Dickens’s novels, transformed (like Grimaldi the clown converted by Mrs Jarley into Lindley Murray the grammarian) from a miscellany – Master Humphrey’s Clock – into a novel. 12 And what we find again in Master Humphrey’s Clock, as in the novel it precedes and gives birth to, is an emphatic and obsessive mourning and semi-mourning. Humphrey himself is in a kind of mourning, although it is not clear at first for what. So too is his friend, the deaf gentleman, who like Humphrey is both mourning and failing to mourn (which are not different) a secret death which he does not acknowledge until it is too late.
