              Among other public buildings in a certain town, which for many reasons it will be prudent torefrain from mentioning, and to which I will assign no fictitious name, there is one ancientlycommon to most towns, great or small: to wit, a workhouse; and in this workhouse was born; ona... day and date which I need not trouble myself to repeat, inasmuch as it can be of no possibleconsequence to the reader, in this stage of the business at all events; the item of mortality whosename is prefixed to the head of this chapter.For a long time after it was ushered into this world of sorrow and trouble, by the parishsurgeon, it remained a matter of considerable doubt whether the child would survive to bear anyname at all; in which case it is somewhat more than probable that these memoirs would neverhave appeared; or, if they had, that being comprised within a couple of pages, they would havepossessed the inestimable merit of being the most concise and faithful specimen of biography, extant in the literature of any age or country.Although I am not disposed to maintain that the being born in a workhouse, is in itself themost fortunate and enviable circumstance that can possibly befall a human being, I do mean tosay that in this particular instance, it was the best thing for Oliver Twist that could by possibilityhave occurred. The fact is, that there was considerable difficulty in inducing Oliver to take uponhimself the office of respiration, -a troublesome practice, but one which custom has renderednecessary to our easy existence; and for some time he lay gasping on a little flock mattress, rather unequally poised between this world and the next: the balance being decidedly in favourof the latter. Now, if, during this brief period, Oliver had been surrounded by carefulgrandmothers, anxious aunts, experienced nurses, and doctors of profound wisdom, he wouldmost inevitably and indubitably have been killed in no time. There being nobody by, however, but a pauper old woman, who was rendere

              I give Pirrip as my father's family name, on the authority of his tombstone and my sister, -Mrs. Joe Gargery, who married the blacksmith. As I never saw my father or my mother, and never saw any likeness of either of them (for their days were long before the days of photographs),... my first fancies regarding what they were like were unreasonably derived from their tombstones. The shape of the letters on my father's, gave me an odd idea that he was a square, stout, dark man, with curly black hair. From the character and turn of the inscription, Also Georgiana Wife of the Above, I drew a childish conclusion that my mother was freckled and sickly

              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 c...entre of Bleak House is a long-running legal case in the Court of Chancery, Jarndyce and Jarndyce, which comes about because a testator has written 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.
