Sunday Diversion: The Answer for Classic Novel Jumble #2

Answer time for last weekend’s Sunday Diversion. But before we get to the answer, here’s the puzzle for all you latecomers.

Here’s how it works:

1. I give you a cryptic clue about the answer, which is a play on the title of a classic novel.

2. I give you a series of jumbled words related to the novel and a clue for each. You then unscramble them.

3. Each unscrambled word contains a couple of letters of the solution. [The letters that go into the solution are bracketed]

4. Once you have all the letters, you then unscramble them to figure out the solution.

Alright, here we go.
