La Pequeña Dorrit

L. a. pequeña Dorrit (en inglés unique, Little Dorrit) es una novela por entregas escrita por Charles Dickens, publicada por primera vez por entregas de 1855 a 1857. l. a. obra es una sátira oscura y directa sobre l. a. incompetencia del gobierno de los angeles época y l. a. hipocresía de l. a. sociedad victoriana.

Para criticar esta situación, Dickens sitúa buena parte de los angeles trama en l. a. prisión de deudores de Marshalsea, en l. a. margen derecha del río Támesis a su paso por Londres, que es descrita con gran viveza sobre todo porque el propio padre del autor fue encarcelado en ella.

Esta, es otra de las obras maestras de Dickens. Leerla y analizarla podría llevar al lector a entender las duras críticas de este autor para con una sociedad sumergida en las miserias humanas de su tiempo y que hoy día se replican de muchas maneras.
