Product Description

Hope, Joy, Youth, Peace, Rest, Life, Dust, Ashes, Waste, Want, Ruin, Despair, Madness, Death, Cunning, Folly, Words, Wigs, Rags, Sheepskin, Plunder, Precedent, Jargon, Gammon, Spinach, and two named for the Wards in Jarndyce.

Bleak House, like Mrs. Flite's birds' names, center upon the everlasting case of Jarndyce v. Jarndyce. Tied up in Chancery, the case concerns the inheritance of Richard Carstone and Ada Clare, two young cousins who, along with Ada's companion Esther Summerson, travel to Bleak House as the wards of Mr. Jarndyce. Despite the best warnings of Mr. Jarndyce that the case is the family's "curse," and to refuse to put any faith in a positive outcome, Richard increasingly strives towards securing a resolution which favors the will naming him and Ada as the heirs. As intersecting storylines weave in and out, connections and secrets are revealed, resulting in a complex work which showcases Dickens finest observations on London life as well as his complete command of storytelling.

760 pages, softcover. Wordsworth Edition.
