Bleak House is a novel by Charles Dickens published in monthly installments between March and September It is held to be one of Dickens s finest novels containing one of the most vast complex and engaging arrays of minor characters and sub plots in his entire canon br br At the novel s core is long running litigation in England s Court of Chancery Jarndyce v Jarndyce which has far reaching consequences for all involved The litigation which already has taken many years and consumed between and in court costs is emblematic of the failure of Chancery br br Though Chancery lawyers and judges criticised Dickens s portrait of Chancery as exaggerated and unmerited his novel helped to spur an ongoing movement that culminated in the enactment of legal reform in the s, In what may be Dickens s best novel humble orphaned Pip is apprenticed to the dirty work of the forge but dares to dream of becoming a gentleman and one day under sudden and enigmatic circumstances he finds himself in possession of great expectations In this gripping tale of crime and guilt revenge and reward the compelling characters include Magwitch the fearful and fearsome convict Estella whose beauty is excelled only by her haughtiness and the embittered Miss Havisham an eccentric jilted bride, b i Liberty equality fraternity or death the last much the easiest to bestow O Guillotine i b br br After eighteen years as a political prisoner in the Bastille the ageing Doctor Manette is finally released and reunited with his daughter in England There the lives of two very different men Charles Darnay an exiled French aristocrat and Sydney Carton a disreputable but brilliant English lawyer become enmeshed through their love for Lucie Manette From the tranquil roads of London they are drawn against their will to the vengeful bloodstained streets of Paris at the height of the Reign of Terror and they soon fall under the lethal shadow of La Guillotine br br This edition uses the text as it appeared in its serial publication in to convey the full scope of Dickens s vision and includes the original illustrations by H K Browne Phiz Richard Maxwell s introduction discusses the intricate interweaving of epic drama with personal tragedy br back cover, In October Charles Dickens heavily in debt and obligated to his publisher began work on a book to help supplement his family s meagre income That volume i A Christmas Carol i has long since become one of the most beloved stories in the English language As much a part of the holiday season as holly mistletoe and evergreen wreaths this perennial favourite continues to delight new readers and rekindle thoughts of charity and goodwill br br With its characters exhibiting many qualities as well as failures often ascribed to Dickens himself the imaginative and entertaining tale relates Ebenezer Scrooge s eerie encounters with a series of spectral visitors Journeying with them through Christmases past present and future he is ultimately transformed from an arrogant obstinate and insensitive miser to a generous warm hearted and caring human being Written by one of England s greatest and most popular novelists i A Christmas Carol i has come to epitomize the true meaning of Christmas
