Bleak House centers on the case of ‘Jarndyce and Jarndyce,’ which drags its way through the Court of Chancery. It brings together a strange cast of characters, which are some of Dickens’ best. There are Ada and Richard Clare, who are watching their inheritance being eaten by court costs. Esther Summerson is the ward of the court, but his pedigree remains shrouded in mystery. Tulkinghorn is the shark of a lawyer. Inspector Bucket is the headstrong investigator searching for the truth. And there’s also Jo who might be too easily written off as an unimportant crossing-sweeper. Like so many of Dickens’ works, Bleak House is a critique of society encapsulated in an unforgettable story. Bleak House’s plot is one of Dickens’ most ambitious plots, ranging the mansions of the nobility to the squalor of the poor.
