Bleak House is not certainly Dickens's best book; but perhaps it is his best novel. Such a distinction is not a mere verbal trick; it has to be remembered rather constantly in connection with his work. This particular story represents the highest point of his intellectual maturity. Dickens' ninth novel was intended to illustrate the evils caused by long, drawn-out suits in the Courts of Chancery.
