Poetry Drama Audio Programs-Hailed by George Bernard Shaw as Dickens masterpiece among masterpieces for its social indictment and sense of humanity, iLittle Dorriti is both an examination of Victorian England and a surprising love story.pThis BBC Radio 4 dramatisation recreates the authors mid-19th Century London, in particular the East London area of Marshalsea. Drawing upon his own fathers imprisonment in Marshalsea Debtors Prison, Dickens placed the institution firmly in the heart of the novel when telling the story of Amy Dorrit.pThe youngest child of debtor William Dorrit, Amy is born in Marshalsea prison. She and her father are befriended by Arthur Clennam, whose mother employs little Dorrit as a seamstress. The fortunes of the Dorrits undergo an extreme change when William inherits a fortune, and the family moves to Italy.pBack in England, Arthur Clennam finds himself the victim of a massive fraud and ends up in Marshalsea. There he is found by Little Dorrit, whose fortune has had no effect on her generosity and humility. Arthur realises that she loves him, but it is not until the Dorrit fortune is lost that the two of them can be united at last. p Peopled with Dickens usual host of memorable characters, the authors mix of satire and genuine sentiment has made this one of his best-loved works.
