  • Highly regarded today as one of the greatest novels in English literature, Little Dorrit presents both a scathing indictment of mid Victorian England and a devastating insight into the human condition Examining the many social and mental prisons which incarcerate men and women, the novel also considers the nature of true spiritual freedom Against a background of administrative and financial scandal, Dickens tells the moving story of the old Marshalsea prisoner who inherits a fortune and his devoted daughter s love for a man who believes he has done with love He draws widely on the events of his own life and times, yet focuses a powerful imaginative vision which is as universal as it is specific, immediate, and intense In Little Dorrit Dickens displays his characteristic mastery of irony and pathos, of satire and comedy, and the novel exemplifies his most mature, ambitious, and effective writing This edition, which has the definitive Clarendon text, also includes Dickens s working notes and eight of the original illustrations from the first edition by Phiz.

    3. All of Dickens novels display a darker side to some degree or another as he explores the social ills of Victorian England, but none are so unremittingly dark as Little Dorrit Much of the action in Little Dorrit takes place in the Marshalsea debtors prison The heroine resides there at the beginning of the novel, and the novel s hero later is consigned to the prison up to the penultimate chapter The deus ex machina conclusion almost seems tacked on as an anticlimactic ending just so that Dickens c [...]


    4. I began reading Little Dorritt because of a mention of it in the game Lost For Words Emotional, ironic, wryly humorous in the British style, this book seemed to describe the urban scenes and society in any 21st U S city The Circumlocution Office could have been any bureau in the federal government, with as many yards of Scarlet Tape and buckets of forms It grips the reader s heart, exercises the mind, and expands the imagination You NEED to read it, to understand the American Divide in our day T [...]
