Bleak House

Bleak House is a drama- romantic based novel by Charles Dickens'. Jarndyce and Jarndyce is an interminable law case in the Court of Chancery, concerning two or more wills and the beneficiaries of them. Sir Leicester Dedlock and his wife Honoria live on his estate at Chesney Wold. Lady Dedlock is a beneficiary under one of the wills. Mr Tulkinghorn recognizes the handwriting on the copy. He traces the copyist, a pauper known only as "Nemo", in London. The Jarndyce family waits in vain to inherit the money from a contested wealth in the settlement of Jarndyce and Jarndyce's extraordinarily long-running litigation, Bleak House. The current case involves the two young court wards, Ada Clare and Richard Carstone, who are requesting permission to live with a distant cousin, Mr. John Jarndyce. Later, Mr. Tulkinghorn, a barrister, pays a visit to Sir Leicester Dedlock and Lady Honoria Dedlock at their London house. She's also involved in the case, and when the lawyer looks over affidavits with her, she takes an unexpected interest in one of the documents' penmanship. Jarndyce later offers Woodcourt a house named Bleak House and gives Esther his permission to marry Woodcourt instead of him. The new will eventually settles the case in Richard's favor, but the estate's funds have already been depleted by legal fees.
