Description

Amy (Little Dorrit) the daughter of the ruined, but self-respectful William Dorrit, has put her entire heart in caring for her dear father, until one day her humble path is crossed by Arthur Clennam.

Their meeting proves providential not only for Amy’s life, but for the whole Dorrit family, whose new rise will, in many ways, be also their fall.

When Arthur Clennam returns to England after many years abroad, he takes a kindly interest in Amy Dorrit, his mother’s seamstress, and in the affairs of Amy’s father, William Dorrit who is long imprisoned for debt in the Marshalsea.

"Little Dorrit" is a social condemnation, particularly of the system of prisons set aside for the debtors of England. Through the memorable characters of Amy and her father William Dorrit, as well as the disenchanted Arthur Clennam, recently returned from abroad, Dickens weaves a suspenseful tale that plumbs the depths of confined minds.

Despite the changing fortunes of many of the characters, financial scandal is never far behind them, and they must seek freedom in unexpected ways.

Dickens fully employs his masterful irony, humor, and mature writing to create a powerful story about both physical and psychological imprisonment, as well as the freedom of a spirit that feels love.

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.

As in all his novels, in “Little Dorrit” Dickens ushers us into a fascinating and startlingly rich world of human characters and destinies, where virtue and nobility cross swords with vice and villainy, where strength and weakness intertwine with prejudice and magnanimity and where the author’s inspired pen wields a compelling and unforgettable power over the readers.

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.

Little Dorrit

:
An excellent reading!!! The pronunciations are very Brittish, but that seems appropriate. The various characters are very well delineated.

One disappointment: I have not been able to find the name of the narrator anywhere in the supporting documentation. It is stated in the narration, and sounds like "Alex Christoff", but I have no way of knowing how to accurately spell the narrator's name. I'd like to find other books narrated by him.
