"It is a world of disappointment: often to the hopes we most cherish, and hopes that do our nature the greatest honour." Born into a life of impoverishment, orphaned at birth, Oliver Twist begins his life in a workhouse. Apprenticed to Mr. Sowerberry, he flees to London on being beaten. What happens as he meets Jack Dawkins, goes to work with him without knowing the nature of work, and is taken to the police when mistaken for a thief? Follow Oliver Twist as he strives to overcome the miserable conditions of the mid-19th century lower class, and searches for an identity. Centred round the rise of capitalism and industrial revolution, Dickens' Oliver Twist is a notable example of a social novel. Adapted into numerous art forms, it continues to remain a classic sensation.
About the AuthorCharles Dickens was one of the most popular English writers of all time. He created some of the world's most well-known fictional characters and is generally regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian period. Born in Portsmouth, England, on 7 February, 1812, his early childhood experiences were much like those depicted in his novel-David Copperfield. He published his first novel, Oliver Twist, in 1837. It was followed by Nicholas Nickleby (1838) and The Old Curiosity Shop (1841). A Christmas Carol (1843) is the most popular perhaps of all his works. In 1859, he published A Tale of Two Cities, his best known work of historical fiction. Dickens suffered a stroke and died on 9 June, 1870, aged 58.
