Publisher's Description

This fiercely comic tale stands in marked  contrast to its genial predecessor, The Pickwick  Papers. Set against London's seedy back  street slums, Oliver Twist is  the saga of a workhouse orphan captured and thrust  into a thieves' den, where some of Dickens's most  depraved villains preside: the incorrigible  Artful Dodger, the murderous bully Sikes, and the  terrible Fagin, that treacherous ringleader whose  grinning knavery threatens to send them all to the  "ghostly gallows." Yet at the heart of this  drama is the orphan Oliver, whose unsullied  goodness leads him at last to salvation. In 1838 the  publication of Oliver Twist firmly established the  literary eminence of young Dickens. It was,  according to Edgar Johnson, "a clarion peal  announcing to the world that in Charles Dickens the  rejected and forgotten and misused of the world had a  champion."

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

    The story of Oliver Twist tells of the struggles of a young orphan boy in the streets of London. It follows him from his birth, to his labeling as a trouble-maker when he dares to ask for more food, being sold as an apprentice, accused of attempted murder, running away and getting caught up with a gang of thieves, and to what could be his salvation if his old life doesn't follow him. Dickens explores both sides of the human spectrum, from ultimate kindness to ultimate cruelty.

    The characters in this story are vivid, making the horrors of the tale even more terrible. Dickens probably didn't realize when he wrote this almost two centuries ago that it would capture the human condition in such an honest way that Oliver Twist would become a classic to be read again and again. Being set in England in the 1800′s, the language is very different from modern novels, especially during pieces of longer narration. The dialog, however, even with its old english slang, is easily understood.
