Coming to PBS in March 2009-a MasterpieceTM Classic production of Charles Dickens'sLittle Dorrit
Charles Dickens 's great satire on poverty, riches, and imprisonment, Little Dorrit is the story of Arthur Clennam, a man whose kindly interest in Amy Dorrit, his mother's seamstress, assures him nothing but trouble. Her father, William Dorrit, a man of shabby grandeur, has long been imprisoned for debt in the Marshalsea. A masterly evocation of the state and psychology of imprisonment,Little Dorrit is a supreme work of Dickens's maturity.
Baker & Taylor The daughter of an imprisoned debtor suffers injustices of nineteenth-century English society.
