Little Dorrit was the eleventh novel from Charles Dickens, serialised between 1855 and 1857. A rags to riches story set in the 1820’s, Little Dorrit centres around the changing fortunes of the Dorrit family.
Charles Dickens was only 12 years old at the time of his fathers’ imprisonment in the Marshalsea. This was to become Dickens worst memory, which was to haunt him for the rest of his life. He was put into lodgings at nearby Lant Street, and sent out to work in a boot blacking factory, on the site of present day Hungerford Bridge.
