But one part of the story remained a tantalizing secret: the authorís identity. That mystery ____2____ solved by a professor of English in South Carolina, who said recently that he has discovered the novelistís name: Hannah Bond, ____3____ slave on a North Carolina plantation owned by John Hill Wheeler. The professorís research offers insight into how a house slave was heavily influenced by the great literature of her time and how she managed to ____4____ a daring escape, disguised as a man. According to the professor, the influences of Dickens, ____5____ Bleak House, can be explained by Bondís servitude on a plantation that kept boarders from a girlsí school; the curriculum there required the girls to recite passages of Bleak House from memory. Bond could have listened while they studied, or taken a copy to read.
