Meanwhile, their benefactor falls on hard times when he becomes the victim of a gigantic fraud perpetrated by an eminent financier and is himself sentenced to the Marshalsea. Little Dorrit finds him there, and a relationship develops between them that juxtaposes ambition with humility, acquisitiveness with generosity, regret with optimism.
A masterly evocation of the state and psychology of imprisonment, Little Dorrit is one of the supreme works of Dickenss maturity.
