Little Dorrit

New Edition

Charles Dickens
Edited by Harvey Peter Sucksmith and Dennis Walder

Oxford World's Classics

  • One of Dickens's greatest works of social criticism, Little Dorrit's scathing indictment of mid-Victorian England centres on the Marshalsea Prison and the Dorrit family who live there, against a background of government incompetence and financial scandal.
  • This edition uses the definitive Clarendon text and includes all the original illustrations by Phiz.
  • Wide-ranging introduction highlights Dickens's move from social and political to more personal, even spiritual concerns while maintaining the wide scope of his mature fiction.
  • Appendix reproduces Dickens's number plans for the novel.
  • Map of London.
  • Up-to-date bibliography and full chronology of the author's life and times.

New to this Edition:

  • All the illustrations by Phiz (previous edition only included 8 out of 41).
  • New Introduction by Dennis Walder.
  • New bibliography.
  • Substantially revised and updated notes.
  • New, fuller chronology.
  • Map of London.
  • Text entirely re-set in a larger, more attractive, and unworn typeface.
