Description

Widely considered to be Dickens' s greatest satire on poverty, Little Dorrit is the story of Amy " Little" Dorrit' s struggle to hold her poverty-stricken family together in the face of her father' s imprisonment in the Marshalsea debtor' s prison. Called the " child of the Marshalsea," Little Dorrit struggles to support her family as a seamstress while dreaming of a future free of the Marshalsea.

Little Dorrit was originally published as a serial between 1855 and 1857 as a critique of the British debtor' s prisons, in which debtors were imprisoned and unable to work until their debts were paid. The story pulls significantly from Dickens' s own experience as the child of an imprisoned debtor.
