Product Description

Please, sir, I want some more.

Oliver Twist's simple request has stirred pity ever since its first publication. An orphan sent to the workhouse, and then lent out to an undertaker whose wife treats him badly, Oliver runs away to London where he meets up with the Artful Dodger and elderly thief Fagin. A mixture of social criticism and brilliantly conceived satire, Oliver Twist criticizes the poor laws through a careful reconstruction of the London underworld.

Part of the Penguin Classics Hardcover Series, the fabric-bound, imprinted cover was designed by the acclaimed Coralie Bickford-Smith. Oliver Twist features a pattern of green pocketwatches on a cream background. Ribbon marker is also included. 608 pages, hardcover.

Publisher's Description

Part of Penguin's beautiful hardback Clothbound Classics series, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith, these delectable and collectible editions are bound in high-quality colourful, tactile cloth with foil stamped into the design. The story of the orphan Oliver, who runs away from the workhouse only to be taken in by a den of thieves, shocked readers when it was first published. Dickens's tale of childhood innocence beset by evil depicts the dark criminal underworld of a London peopled by vivid and memorable characters - the arch-villain Fagin, the artful Dodger, the menacing Bill Sikes and the prostitute Nancy. Combining elements of Gothic Romance, the Newgate Novel and popular melodrama, Dickens created an entirely newkind of fiction, scathing in its indictment of a cruel society, and pervaded by an unforgettable sense of threat and mystery.

Editorial Reviews

"The power of [Dickens] is so amazing, that the reader at once becomes his captive, and must follow him whithersoever he leads."
--William Makepeace Thackeray
