  • "The story of William Dorrit, imprisoned for debt in Marshalsea Prison, and his daughter and helpmate, Amy, or Little Dorrit, the novel charts the progress of the Dorrit family from poverty to riches."
  • "This complex, sombre work, haunted by the symbol of the prison, is more than any other Dickens novel a study of society."@en
  • "Charles Dickens's great satire on poverty, riches, and imprisonment, Little Dorrit is the story of Arthur Clennam, a man whose kindly interest in Amy Dorrit, his mother's seamstress, assures him nothing but trouble. Her father, William Dorrit, a man of shabby grandeur, has long been imprisoned for debt in the Marshalsea."
  • "Born in a debtor's prison where her father has been sent, Amy Dorrit's story is an indictment against the inequity of the Victorian English legal system. Dickens writes with sympathy and venomous humor in this exploration of social injustice and inequality."@en
  • ""Little Dorrit grows up in Marshalsea prison, where her father is confined for his debts, and she helps to feed the family with her needlework until her father receives an inheritance when she is in her teens, and more problems ensue.""@en
  • "Describes the life of Little Dorrit, who was born and brought up in the Marshalsea prison where her father was confined for debt."@en
  • "Little Dorrit is a classic tale of imprisonment, both literal and metaphorical, while Dickens' working title for the novel, Nobody's Fault, highlights its concern with personal responsibility in private and public life. Dickens' childhood experiences inform the vivid scenes in Marshalsea debtor s prison, while his adult perceptions of governmental failures shape his satirical picture of the Circumlocution Office. The novel s range of characters - the honest, the crooked, the selfish and the self-denying - offers a portrait of society about whose values Dickens had profound doubts.>"@en
  • "Na lange tijd in een strafgevangenis te hebben gezeten, gaan een Engelsman en zijn gezin, tot grote welstand gekomen, op reis, maar ze blijven gevangen in hun minderwaardigheidsgevoelens."
  • ""Charles Dickens' 1855-57 novel Little Dorrit depicts life in debtors' prison, the effects of the lack of money, the return of fortune, and the absurdity of governmental bureaucracy. The protagonist, Amy Dorrit, works unbeknownst to her father as a seamstress to support them while living in Marshallsea prison. The novel is divided into two parts: Poverty and riches. The first part of the novel is Amy Dorrit's story, so I used the spools and threads to represent her life in debtors' prison. Rather than make a clamshell box, the spools act as the walls of the case, suggesting that, while her sewing was a way of providing for her family, it was also a prison in itself. Because Amy tried to make her life as pleasant as possible, the colors of the threads used here are brighter and more varied than in Riches (part the second)"--Artist's statement."@en
  • "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'. - Publisher."@en

As Arthur soon discovers, the dark shadow of the prison stretches far beyond its walls to affect the lives of many, from the kindly Mr. Pancks, the reluctant rent-collector of Bleeding Heart Yard, and the garrulous Flora Finching, to Merdle, an unscrupulous financier, and the bureaucratic Barnacles in the Circumlocution Office. A masterly evocation of the state and psychology of imprisonment, Little Dorrit is one of the supreme works of Dickens's maturity"--Cover page 4."

This gripping new series brings to life Dickens's powerful story of struggle and hardship in 1820s London. When Arthur Clennam (Macfadyen) returns to England after many years abroad, his curiosity is piqued by the presence in his mother's house of a young seamstress, Amy Dorrit (Foy). His quest to discover the truth about?Little Dorrit? takes him to the Marshalsea Debtors Prison, where he discovers that the dark shadows of debt stretch far and wide. Filled with humorous yet tragic characters, Little Dorrit is a stirring rags to riches to rags story, exposing the underbelly of nineteenth century British society as only Charles Dickens can."@en

Earning meager wages as a seamstress to support her family, Amy is befriended by her employer's son, Arthur, who wants to help. When Arthur uncovers an unknown inheritance due to Mr. Dorrit, the family is finally freed from prison. Newly wealthy, they travel to Italy, where the proud Mr. Dorrit instructs his children to sever old connections and learn the ways of the upper class. But leaving their past behind proves not to be so easy. Meanwhile, their benefactor, Arthur, falls on hard times when he becomes the victim of a gigantic financial fraud. When he next meets Little Dorrit, their places are reversed: Arthur is imprisoned in the Marshalsea, too ashamed of his position to declare his love. But to Little Dorrit, love has always transcended class. A masterly evocation of the state and psychology of imprisonment, Little Dorrit is one of the supreme works of Dickens's maturity."

  • "One of Charles Dickens' most personally resonant novels, Little Dorrit speaks across the centuries to the modern reader. Its depiction of shady financiers and banking collapses seems uncannily topical, as does Dickens' compassionate admiration for Amy Dorrit, the "child of the Marshalsea," as she struggles to hold her family together in the face of neglect, irresponsibility, and ruin. Intricate in its plotting, the novel also satirizes the cumbersome machinery of government. For Dickens, Little Dorrit marked a return to some of the most harrowing scenes of his childhood, with its graphic depiction of the trauma of the debtors' prison and its portrait of a world ignored by society. The novel not only explores the literal prison, but also the figurative jails that characters build for themselves."

  • "Little Dorrit grows up in the Marshalsea debtor's prison, where her father has been imprisoned ever since her birth. When Mr Dorrit's debt is excused, he is anxious to forget his inglorious past and be accepted back into the best circles of society. Dickens criticizes the hierarchical society which would demand such an impossible thing of a man, and also questions which class of their acquaintance are good people and true friends.

  • "Against a background of government incompetence and financial scandal, Arthur Clennam searches for the key to the affairs of the Dorrit family, prisoners for debt in the Marshalsea. Mixing humour and pathos, irony and satire, Little Dorrit reveals a master of fiction in top form. This new edition includes all of Phiz's original illustrations."

  • "Novel of satire and protest whose protagonist Amy Dorrit, was born within the walls of Marshalsea, a debtors prison."@en
  • "A tale of imprisonment --- both literal and symbolic --- emphasises its theme of personal responsibility in all areas of life. Dickens draws on his childhood memories of the Marshalsea Debtor's Prison."@en
  • "When Arthur Clennam returns to London after many years in China working for the family business, he wants to learn whether or not his father's dying words and a watch with a stange inscription have anything to do with his mother's new seamstress, young Amy Dorrit. His search brings him to the Marshalsea Debtors Prison, where he learns the truth about struggle and hardship in 1820s England."
  • "Of the complex, richly rewarding masterworks he wrote in the last decade of his life, Little Dorrit is the book in which Charles Dickens most fully unleashed his indignation at the fallen state of mid-Victorian society. Crammed with persons and incidents in whose recreation nothing is accidental or spurious, containing, in its picture of the Circumlocution Office, the most witheringly exact satire of a bureaucracy we possess, Little Dorrit is a stunning example of how thoroughly Dickens could put his flair for the theatrical and his comic genius the service of his passion for justice."
