Bleak House is a complex plot of love and inheritance set against the nineteenth-century English legal system with all its tortuous avenues and disguised resolutions. In the legal firm of Jarndyce & Jarndyce, a young orphan and ward of court Esther Summerson tells much of the story. As always, it is the skilled pen of Dickens himself that creates the momentum with his acute eye for both individual characters and their traits as well as the backdrop of Victorian London.

Author Bio: Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was born in Landport, Portsmouth, England, the second of eight children in a family continually plagued by debt. A legacy brought release from the nightmare of debtors’ prison and child labor and afforded him a few years of formal schooling. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his early writings brought him the amazing success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. He was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era, and he remains popular, responsible for some of English literature’s most iconic characters.
