summary
In this extended meditation on what many consider to be Dickens's and 19th-c. England's greatest work of narrative fiction, notable Dickens scholar John Jordan draws on narrative theory and psychoanalysis to show how Dickens was not only a powerful investigator of the unconscious mind but also a deeply committed advocate for social justice and inclusivity. This new look at Bleak House will significantly change the way in which the novel as well as its illustrations are read and understood from here on.
