Jordan guides us through the haunted chambers of Bleak House, from the psyche and syntax of its narrators to the book’s mythological underpinnings to Dickens’s construction of himself and the serial. Jordan is the most readable of readers. He never cuts a work down to size, but rather leaves it a more magically rich habitation for us to enjoy. This is now the gold standard of criticism for Dickens.
