Bleak House by Charles Dickens Summary

The law courts prevailing over the case of Jarndyce & Jarndyce are overwhelming in their pedantic, futile red-tape bureaucratic adherence to old principles and are partly based on Dickens' time as a young law clerk. With a massive cast of characters--many with ingeniously comic names--and his most complex plot, Bleak House is believed by many to be Dickens' greatest work.

Bleak House by Charles Dickens Summary

Sur fond d’un interminable procès, impliquant une cinquantaine de personnages, Bleak House est le grand roman juridique de Dickens, qui dénonce une institution devenue folle. Raconté par deux personnages différents, de manière très moderne, le récit met en jeu tout un réseau de coïncidences, plusieurs fausses pistes et nombre d’espoirs déçus ou trahis. Roman foisonnant où la justice tourne à l’absurde, où l’on enquête et juge à l’infini, Bleak House est aussi un roman policier dont le véritable héros est Londres, la ville à l’atmosphère empoisonnée par la révolution industrielle. Dans une veine à la fois satirique, sombre et constamment drôle, Dickens décrit un monde où la nature est peu à peu corrompue par l’homme, et signe là son passage définitif vers le roman total.

Bleak House by Charles Dickens Summary

London. Michaelmas term lately over, and the Lord Chancellor sitting in Lincoln's Inn Hall. Implacable November weather. As much mud in the streets as if the waters had but newly retired from the face of the earth, and it would not be wonderful to meet a Megalosaurus, forty feet long or so, waddling like an elephantine lizard up Holborn Hill. Smoke lowering down from chimney-pots, making a soft black drizzle, with flakes of soot in it as big as full-grown snowflakes—gone into mourning, one might imagine, for the death of the sun. Dogs, undistinguishable in mire. Horses, scarcely better; splashed to their very blinkers. Foot passengers, jostling one another's umbrellas in a general infection of ill temper, and losing their foot-hold at street-corners, where tens of thousands of other foot passengers have been slipping and sliding since the day broke (if this day ever broke), adding new deposits to the crust upon crust of mud, sticking at those points tenaciously to the pavement, and accumulating at compound interest. Fog everywhere. Fog up the river, where it flows among green aits and meadows; fog down the river, where it rolls defiled among the tiers of shipping and the waterside pollutions of a great (and dirty) city. Fog on the Essex marshes, fog on the Kentish heights. Fog creeping into the cabooses of collier-brigs; fog lying out on the yards and hovering in the rigging of great ships; fog drooping on the gunwales of barges and small boats. Fog in the eyes and throats of ancient Greenwich pensioners, wheezing by the firesides of their wards; fog in the stem and bowl of the afternoon pipe of the wrathful skipper, down in his close cabin; fog cruelly pinching the toes and fingers of his shivering little 'prentice boy on deck. Chance people on the bridges peeping over the parapets into a nether sky of fog, with fog all round them, as if they were up in a balloon and hanging in the misty clouds.

Charles Dickens - Bleak House by Charles Dickens Summary

"It is not a large world. Relatively even to this world of ours, which has its limits too (as your Highness shall find when you have made the tour of it and are come to the brink of the void beyond), it is a very little speck. There is much good in it; there are many good and true people in it; it has its appointed place. But the evil of it is that it is a world wrapped up in too much jeweller's cotton and fine wool, and cannot hear the rushing of the larger worlds, and cannot see them as they circle round the sun. It is a deadened world, and its growth is sometimes unhealthy for want of air.“ Bleak House by Charles Dickens wins with its superb descriptive writing, subtle humour, and the exciting plot. At the centre of Bleak House is a long-running legal case in the Court of Chancery, Jarndyce and Jarndyce, which came about because a testator has written several conflicting wills. In a preface to the 1853 first edition, Dickens wrote there were many actual precedents for his fictional case.

Bleak House I by Dickens C. Summary

Bleak House opens in the twilight of foggy London, where fog grips the city most densely in the Court of Chancery. The obscure case of Jarndyce and Jarndyce, in which an inheritance is gradually devoured by legal costs, the romance of Esther Summerson and the secrets of her origin, the sleuthing of Detective Inspector Bucket and the fate of Jo the crossing-sweeper, these are some of the lives Dickens invokes to portray London society, rich and poor, as no other novelist has done.

La Maison d'Âpre-Vent — Bleak-House by Charles Dickens Summary

La Maison d'Âpre-Vent (Bleak-House) Charles Dickens Cet ouvrage a fait l'objet d'un véritable travail en vue d'une édition numérique. Un travail typographique le rend facile et agréable à lire. Le procès Jarndyce mobilise les efforts de la Chancellerie depuis vingt ans, au sujet d'un héritage sujet à caution ; de sorte que les parties concernées sont totalement dépassées par cet imbroglio juridique. John Jarndyce, l'un des héritiers putatifs, recueille généreusement deux orphelins, Ada Clare et Richard Carstone. Il s'agit de cousins éloignés, également concernés par l'affaire, mais dont les intérêts sont antagonistes. Il engage en même temps comme gouvernante une jeune fille de modeste condition, Esther Summerson, qui sera la narratrice du roman. Ada et Richard, dès le premier regard, s'éprennent l'un de l'autre ; et Esther, dont la naissance illégitime est nimbée de mystère, leur sert de chaperon et de confidente. Tous quatre s'installent dans la maison d'Âpre-vent, vaste demeure qui porte bien son nom. Autour d'eux gravitent bien des personnages, diversement hauts en couleurs.
