Little Dorrit

Book Synopsis Little Dorrit by : Charles Dickens

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'.

Little Dorrit's Shadows

Book Synopsis Little Dorrit's Shadows by : Brian Rosenberg

In Little Dorrit's Shadows, Brian Rosenberg explores the specific relations between Dickens's ambivalent or self-contradictory imagination and his creation of character, arguing that contradiction and uncertainty do not merely color Dickens's characterization but account in large part for its distinctiveness and success. Characters that seem initially to be thoroughly knowable prove in the end to be as present and absent, definite and indefinite as shadows. Rosenberg is fully familiar with Dickensian criticism and with commentary on the subject of characterization in general. He concentrates on Dickens's eleventh novel, Little Dorrit, in which doubts and conflicts combine to shape the fictional structure on virtually every level. And because Little Dorrit is founded on contradiction, the contradictory elements in the characterization are granted free rein. Working outward from close analyses of characterization in Little Dorrit to more general considerations of Dickens's other novels, Rosenberg does justice both to the achievement of Little Dorrit and to the ways it resembles and differs from Dickens's fourteen other substantial texts.
