Reseña del editor:


Read one of the greatest masterpieces of all time in a beautiful edition.

Bleak House is a masterpiece by Charles Dickens, first published as a serial between March 1852 and September 1853. It is considered to be one of Dickens' most ambitious and finest novels, containing vast, complex and engaging arrays of characters and sub-plots.
Memorable characters include Ada and Richard Clare, whose inheritance is gradually being devoured by legal costs; Esther Summerson, a ward of court, whose parentage is a source of deepening mystery; the menacing lawyer Tulkinghorn; the determined sleuth Inspector Bucket; the realistic John Jarndyce; the childish and disingenuous Harold Skimpole, as well as the imprudent Richard Carstone; and even Jo, the destitute little crossing-sweeper.

At the novel's core is long-running and costly litigation in England's Court of Chancery, 'Jarndyce and Jarndyce', which has far-reaching consequences for all involved. This case revolves around a testator who apparently made several wills.

Though lawyers and judges criticised Dickens's portrait of the English legal system as exaggerated, his novel helped to spur an ongoing movement that culminated in the enactment of legal reform in the 1870s.

This savage, but often comic, indictment of a society, is one of the greatest masterpieces of all time.

Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was an English writer and social critic. He is regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. His works enjoyed unprecedented international popularity during his lifetime. More than a century later, Dickens is still considered a literary genius, famous for his humour, satire, and keen observation of character and society.

This outstanding novel is a must-read of classic literature and will delight readers of all ages.
