Charles Dickens Bleak House

£4.99

Product description

Charles Dickens
Bleak House read by Sir John Gielgud

Bleak House began to appear in monthly parts in 1852, when Dickens was just forty. He was at the height of his very considerable powers, and many critics have judged this to be his finest novel. At the centre is the law's delay, dramatically made manifest in the extraordinarily protracted matter of Jarndyce and Jarndyce, before the Court of Chancerty. There is a wonderful parade of the most striking characters to be found anywhere in fiction: poor, mad Miss Flite; the ruthless, calculating attorney, Mr Tulkinghorn; Mrs Jellyby, with her passionate concerns for the natives of Borioboola-Gha; the pathetic figure of Jo, the crossing-sweeper; and the feckless Mr Skimpole, based partly on the real-life personage of Leigh Hunt, the writer. From sart to finish, Bleak House provides the most gripping an impressive narrative ever written.

Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls.
