The law courts prevailing over the case of Jarndyce & Jarndyce are overwhelming in their pedantic, futile red-tape bureaucratic adherence to old principles and are partly based on Dickens' time as a young law clerk. With a massive cast of characters--many with ingeniously comic names--and his most complex plot, Bleak House is believed by many to be Dickens' greatest work.

Widely regarded as Dickens’s masterpiece, Bleak House centers on the generations-long lawsuit Jarndyce and Jarndyce, through which “whole families have inherited legendary hatreds.” Focusing on Esther Summerson, a ward of John Jarndyce, the novel traces Esther’s romantic coming-of-age and, in classic Dickensian style, the gradual revelation of long-buried secrets, all set against the foggy backdrop of the Court of Chancery. Mixing romance, mystery, comedy, and satire, Bleak House limns the suffering caused by the intricate inefficiency of the law. The text of this Modern Library Paperback Classic was set from the first single-volume edition, published by Bradbury & Evans in 1853, and reproduces thirty-nine of H. K. Browne’s original illustrations for the book.

His ninth novel ‘Bleak House’ Charles Dickens filled with abundant secrets and intricate plot moves. Every single page will literally cause a wide range of emotions. The original intent of the work was to focus on a detailed description of living conditions in the London slums, the spiritual and physical appearance of the poor and renegades of the capital. With the change in design, the ideological and compositional center of the novel shifted - it became the Chancery Court, the supreme Court of Justice, at that time the highest court after the House of Lords. The author of the "Bleak House" denounces English justice.

Considered by many to be Dickens’ best work, Bleak House focuses its gaze on the British legal system, and does not flinch. A distinctly dissimilar cast of characters find their worlds intertwined by two things: a legal case, Jarndyce and Jarndyce, which has lasted so long that at least one generation of the Jarndyce family has expired since its start, and the thick fog that seems to hang over both the case and their entire lives. Brilliantly divided into two strands of narration, one the voice of orphan Esther Summerson, and one an omniscient narrator picking up the thread of haughty Lady Dedlock’s life, Dickens seamlessly draws us into the worlds of the aristocracy all the way down to the poorest of London slums.
