Little Dorrit
A Scholar on Little Dorrit

In an exclusive Masterpiece video interview, Dickens scholar Tatiana Holway illuminates the shadowy world of imprisonment and debt at the center of Little Dorrit and examines Dicken's personal restlessness and deep connections to the fictional landscape he created.

Tatiana Holway received her Ph.D. from Columbia University and taught literature at a number of different colleges. Her publications on Dickens include a Barnes and Noble Classics edition of Bleak House, with a new introduction and explanatory notes (2005), and, most recently, an essay entitled "Funny Money," in Contemporary Dickens, a collection edited by Eileen Gillooly and Deirdre David (2009). Currently, she is working on a book about Victorians' obsession with a giant tropical flower and how it inspired the engineering of the largest building in the world (forthcoming from Oxford University Press).
