The manuscripts from Charlotte Bronte, D.H. Lawrence, Percy Beesea Shelley, T.S. Elliott and Charles Dickens will recently come to an exhibition in Shanghai hosted by the British Library and the Shanghai Library on March 15 – April 15. The event will provide the manuscripts, original drafts, letters and the Chinese translation, adaptation and related comments.

Alexandra Ott, the British curator of the exhibition said nothing is more exciting than seeing the first-hand manuscripts. The meticulous manuscript from Charlotte Bronte and the rush, messy drafts from Charles Dickens indicate the distinct creative ways of the writers.
