ABSTRACT
This article analyzes the serial publication of Charles Dickens' novel "Bleak House." The novel, which is focused on the long interval of time that separates characters from their memories, mirrored this interval through its method of publication. Because the book was released in serial form over the course of one and a half years, readers were influenced to examine time both inside and outside its pages. The author examines the effects of the slow passage of time in between monthly installments on the audience.
