Bleak House 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.
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.
Andrew Bolt and John Roskam discuss the book, its themes and Charles Dickens’ life and times.
