Oliver Twist Charles Dickens

Dickens’s second novel was a far cry from The Pickwick Papers, his first. The story of an orphan who flees the workhouse only to fall in with a gang of thieves and prostitutes in London’s sleazy underworld, it was a trenchant criticism of England’s Poor Laws. The inequities between rich and poor were one of Dickens’s constant themes, and with Oliver Twist he established himself as a staunch champion of the downtrodden, particularly children. The novel also, however, has its cheerful moments, and contains some of Dickens’s most memorable characters, including Fagin, the Artful Dodger, the evil Bill Sykes, and the unfortunate Nancy.
