Summary
Bleak House, Dickens's most daring experiment in the narration of a complex plot, challenges the reader to make connections--between the fashionable and the outcast, the beautiful and the ugly, the powerful and their victims. Nowhere in Dickens's later novels is his attack on an uncaring society more imaginatively embodied, and nowhere is the mixture of comedy and angry satire more deftly managed
Summary
Esther Summerson is the ward of Mr. Jarndyce whose case in Chancery Court seems to have no end
