Characteristic of Dickens' later writings, "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.
