AUTHOR

Dickens, Charles, Howe, Irving

SUMMARY

This fiercely comic second novel 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 "ghastly 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 the 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."Dickens, Charles is the author of 'Oliver Twist', published 1982 under ISBN 9780553211023 and ISBN 0553211021.
