Bleak House Preface Summary

  • This preface says in two pages what could be summed up in five words nowadays: "based on a true story."
  • Dickens says that all the Courts of Chancery stuff in the book is true, ripped from the headlines as it were.
  • And you know what else? Human spontaneous combustion (spoiler!) is totally real too. Um, yeah OK.
