This chapter presents a literary criticism of Charles Dickens' novel Little Dorrit using narratography. It focuses on the part of the novel where the character of Arthur Clenham is seeking to know the nature of the crime for which his father had hoped to cleanse his conscience and the counterplot in which the prisoner girl wronged by Arthur's parents was forced to marry him. This chapter analyzes the unspoken violence of this final plot turn into matrimony.
