Der viele Jahre andauernde Erbschaftsstreit ?Jarndyce kontra Jarndyce? im London der 1820/30er Jahre bildet den Rahmen, der die Schicksale vieler verschiedener Menschen miteinander verbindet.

Bleak House (eBook, PDF)
€ 4.49 *

Bleak House is a novel by Charles Dickens, first published as a 20 episode serial between March 1852 and September 1853. The novel has many characters and several sub-plots, and is told partly by the novel's heroine, Esther Summerson, and partly by an omniscient narrator. 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 wrote several conflicting wills. In a preface to the 1853 first edition, Dickens claimed there were many actual precedents for his fictional case. One such was probably the Thellusson v Woodford case in which a will read in 1797 was contested and not determined until 1859. Though the legal profession criticised Dickens's satire as exaggerated, this novel helped support a judicial reform movement which culminated in the enactment of legal reform in the 1870s. Sir Leicester Dedlock and his wife Honoria live on his estate at Chesney Wold. Unknown to Sir Leicester, before she married, Lady Dedlock had a lover, Captain Hawdon, and had a daughter by him. Lady Dedlock believes her daughter is dead. The daughter, Esther, is in fact alive and being raised by Miss Barbary, Lady Dedlock's sister. Esther does not know Miss Barbary is her aunt. After Miss Barbary dies, John Jarndyce becomes Esther's guardian and assigns the Chancery lawyer ´´Conversation´´ Kenge to take charge of her future. After attending school for six years, Esther moves in with him at Bleak House. Jarndyce simultaneously assumes custody of two other wards, Richard Carstone and Ada Clare (who are both his and one another's distant cousins). They are beneficiaries in one of the wills at issue in Jarndyce and Jarndyce; their guardian is a beneficiary under another will, and the two wills conflict. Richard and Ada soon fall in love, but though Mr Jarndyce does not oppose the match, he stipulates that Richard must first choose a profession. Richard first tries a career in medicine, and Esther meets Allan Woodcourt, a physician, at the house of Richard's tutor. When Richard mentions the prospect of gaining from the resolution of Jarndyce and Jarndyce, John Jarndyce beseeches him never to put faith in what he calls ´´the family curse´´. Meanwhile, Lady Dedlock is also a beneficiary under one of the wills. Early in the book, while listening to the reading of an affidavit by the family solicitor, Mr Tulkinghorn, she recognises the handwriting on the copy. The sight affects her so much she almost faints, which Tulkinghorn notices and investigates. He traces the copyist, a pauper known only as ´´Nemo´´, in London. Nemo has recently died, and the only person to identify him is a street-sweeper, a poor homeless boy named Jo, who lives in a particularly grim and poverty-stricken part of the city known as Tom-All-Alone's (´´Nemo´´ is Latin for ´´nobody´´). Lady Dedlock is also investigating, disguised as her maid, Mademoiselle Hortense. Lady Dedlock pays Jo to take her to Nemo's grave. Meanwhile, Tulkinghorn is concerned Lady Dedlock's secret could threaten the interests of Sir Leicester and watches her constantly, even enlisting her maid to spy on her. He also enlists Inspector Bucket to run Jo out of town, to eliminate any loose ends that might connect Nemo to the Dedlocks. Read this complete famous novel for further story....

Seit ´´Fegefeuer der Eitelkeiten´´ gab es keinen Roman mehr, der unsere Zeit so treffend, unterhaltsam und weitsichtig erklärt. Nero Golden kommt aus einem Land, dessen Namen er nie wieder hören wollte, seit er mit seinen drei erwachsenen Söhnen vor ein paar Jahren nach New York gezogen ist und sich eine junge Russin zur Frau genommen hat. Der junge Filmemacher René wohnt im Nachbarhaus und ist fasziniert von der Familie, die ihm besten Stoff für ein Drehbuch liefert: Aufstieg und Fall eines skrupellos ehrgeizigen, narzisstischen und mediengewandten Schurken, der Make-up trägt und sich die Haare färbt. René wird Zeuge und in einer folgenschweren Episode sogar Teilhaber des dekadenten Treibens im Golden House, dessen Besitzer nicht nur den Vornamen mit Kaiser Nero teilt ... Salman Rushdie erfasst den irritierenden Zeitgeist und zeichnet mit größter Erzählkunst ein treffendes Bild unserer heutigen Welt. Dieser Roman beweist aufs Neue, dass er einer der besten Geschichtenerzähler unserer Tage ist.
