The House of Cobwebs


"The House of Cobwebs" consists some stories, including the title story. Each story was focused on a main hero and plunged the heroes in the different adventures that allow to a reader to understand the person of the story. While the reader may be led to expect a dramatic resolution, Gissing's stories sometimes just come to a halt – his stories had an unpredictable, a nonlinear plot. The stories were well-written, realistic and gave to a reader some food for thought. In "The House of Cobwebs" Gissing for the most part explores his pessimistic themes. The characters in these stories were better off in the end, materially or emotionally than they were at the beginning.
