Charles Dickens was born on 1812, in Portsea, England. His parents were middle-class, but they suffered financially as a result of living beyond their means. When Dickens was twelve years old, his family's dire straits forced him to quit school and work in a blacking factory, a place where shoe polish is made. Within weeks, his father was put in debtor's prison, where Dickens's mother and siblings eventually joined him. At this point, Dickens lived on his own and continued to work at the factory for several months. The horrific conditions in the factory haunted him for the rest of his life, as did the experience of temporary orphanhood. Apparently, Dickens never forgot the day when a more senior boy in the warehouse took it upon himself to instruct Dickens in how to do his work more efficiently. For Dickens, that instruction may have represented the first step toward his full integration into the misery and tedium of working-class life. The more senior boy's name was Bob Fagin. Dickens's residual resentment of him reached a fevered pitch in the characterization of the villain Fagin in Oliver Twist. After inheriting some money, Dickens's father got out of prison and Charles returned to school. As a young adult, he worked as a law clerk and later as a journalist. His experience as a journalist kept him in close contact with the darker social conditions of the Industrial Revolution, and he grew disillusioned with the attempts of lawmakers to alleviate those conditions. A collection of semi-fictional sketches entitled Sketches by Boz earned him recognition as a writer. Dickens became famous and began to make money from his writing when he published his first novel, The Pickwick Papers, which was serialized in 1836 and published in book form the following year. In 1837, the first installment of Oliver Twist appeared in the magazine Bentley's Miscellany, which Dickens was then editing. It was accompanied by illustrations by George Cruikshank, which still accompany many editions of the novel today. Even at this early date, some critics accused Dickens of writing too quickly and too prolifically, since he was paid by the word for his serialized novels. Yet the passion behind Oliver Twist, animated in part by Dickens's own childhood experiences and in part by his outrage at the living conditions of the poor that he had witnessed as a journalist, touched his contemporary readers. Greatly successful, the novel was a thinly veiled protest against the Poor Law of 1834. In 1836, Dickens married Catherine Hogarth, but after twenty years of marriage and ten children, he fell in love with Ellen Ternan, an actress many years his junior. Soon after, Dickens and his wife separated, ending a long series of marital difficulties. Dickens remained a prolific writer to the end of his life, and his novels-among them Great Expectations, A Tale of Two Cities, A Christmas Carol, David Copperfield, and Bleak House-continued to earn critical and popular acclaim. He died of a stroke in 1870, at the age of 58, leaving The Mystery of Edwin Drood unfinished. The Poor Laws: Oliver Twist's Social Commentary Oliver Twist opens with a bitter invective directed at the nineteenth-century English Poor Laws. These laws were a distorted manifestation of the Victorian middle class's emphasis on the virtues of hard work. England in the 1830s was rapidly undergoing a transformation from an agricultural, rural economy to an urban, industrial nation. The growing middle class had achieved an economic influence equal to, if not greater than, that of the British aristocracy. In the 1830s, the middle class clamored for a share of political power with the landed gentry, bringing about a restructuring of the voting system. Parliament passed the Reform Act, which granted the right to vote to previously disenfranchised middle-class citizens. This desire gave rise to the Evangelical religious movement and inspired sweeping economic and political change.

Charles Dickens needs no formal introduction, having been the most popular English writer of the 19th century and still one of the most popular writers in history today. Dickens was obsessed with reading, making him a natural journalist by the age of 20, when he began a career in journalism. Along the way, he also began writing his own short stories and materials, often serializing them in monthly installments in publications, a popular method of publishing in the 19th century. Unlike most writers, Dickens would not write an entire story before it began its serialization, allowing him to work on the fly and leave plot lines up in the air with each opportunity. By the time he died at the relatively young age of 58 from a stroke, he was already Europe's most famous writer. His obituary noted that Dickens was a "e;sympathiser with the poor, the suffering, and the oppressed."e; Dickens was interred in Westminster Abbey, a rare honor bestowed only among the greatest and most accomplished Britons.Many of Dickens' novels were written with the concept of social reform in mind, and Dickens' work was often praised for its realism, comic genius and unique personalities. At the same time, however, Dickens' ability as a writer was nearly unrivaled, with his ability to write in prose unquestioned and unmatched.One of Dickens' most popular novels is Oliver Twist, the story of an orphan who gets led to a life of crime.

Oliver Twist was published in 1838. This story shows in vivid colors the miseries ofthe pauper's home where the inmates are robbed and starved, while the dead are hurried into unhonored graves; the haunts of villains and thieves, where the wretchedpoor are purposely made criminals by those who have sinned past hope; and one wrong-doing is used to force the victim deeper in vice. With such lives are interwoven those of a better sort, showing how men and women in all grades have power on others for good or ill. Oliver Twist - so called because the workhouse master had just then reached the letter "e;T"e; in naming the waifs - was born in the poorhouse, where his mother's wanderings ceased forever. When the hungry lad asked for more ofthe too thin gruel he was whipped. Bound out to work, he runs away from this slavery and goes to London. The Artful Dodger takes the starving lad to the den of Fagin the Jew, the pickpocket's school. But he will not steal. He finds a home. He is kidnapped, and forced to be again with the bad ones, and to act as helper to Sykes the robber in house-breaking. Nancy's womanly heart, bad though her life may be, works to set him free. Once more good people shelter him, rescuing him without assistance ofthe Bow Street officers, who make brave talk. The kind old scholar, Mr. Brownlow, is the good genius who opens before him a way to liberty and a life suited to his nature. The excitable country doctor deceives the police, and saves Oliver for an honest career. The eccentric Mr. Grimwig should not be overlooked. The mystery of his mother's fate is solved, and he finds a sister ...

There can be few writers who have painted such a penetrating picture of Victorian life. From the outset of the novel, following Oliver's birth and his mother's death, observe how Dickens vehemently satirises the hypocrisy of his society regarding its callous attitude towards the urban poor - most notably in the character of the self-important beadle Mr Bumble. Notice, also, how innocent Oliver is but a toy in the hands of the villains, who include the sly and miserly Fagin and ruthless and sadistic Bill Sikes, two of the author's most intriguing characters. 1. BIRTH OF AN ORPHAN. Oliver is born an orphan. On his ninth birthday, he is sent to the workhouse, where he meets Mr Bumble, the beadle. After courageously asking for more gruel, he is sent to Sowerberry's underA-takers. Here, he is placed under Noah Claypole, a charity boy. Oliver is soon apprenticed; but when Noah insults his mother, he gets involved in a fight and resolves to leave his employment. 2. STREET EMPLOYMENT. Oliver arrives at Barnet, where, hungry and desolate, he is approached by the Artful Dodger, who offers him a bed for the night - at Fagin's lair. The Dodger and Charlie Bates arrive the next morning to show off their morning's takings and it is agreed that Oliver will accompany them on their next outing. Oliver watches on as the Artful Dodger steals a handkerchief from a gentleman. But when he takes flight, Oliver is pursued and caught. The victim of the robbery, Mr Brownlow, takes pity on Oliver and takes him back home with him. 3. TEST OF CHARACTER. Oliver wakes up to find himself in a strange place. Mr Brownlow enters and is startled to observe a resemblance between Oliver and a portrait on the wall. Meanwhile, Fagin is furious at the news of Oliver's capture. Worried that Oliver will disclose vital information, Fagin dispatches the Dodger, Charlie and Nancy to find him. Back at Mr Brownlow's, Oliver is sent on an errand to return some books and money to a bookstall, but Brownlow's friend Mr Grimwig is doubtful whether Oliver will return. 4. HOUSE ROBBERY. While on his errand, Oliver is nabbed by Nancy and taken back to Fagin's lair. He is then told to assist Bill Sikes and Toby Crackit in a house robbery. Only at the last moment, however, does Oliver realise the true nature of his work. He is pushed through the window, but when the staff is alerted, Oliver is shot in the left arm and abandoned. He faints and, upon waking, crawls to the nearest house for help, where he is taken in by Giles, the butler, and cared for by compassionate Rose Maylie and her aunt, Mrs Maylie. Doctor Losberne is sent for to tend Oliver. 5. DEVILISH PLOT. The Maylies take Oliver to the country. Romance is in the air as Mrs Maylie's son, Harry, proposes to Rose but she declines - due to some 'stain' on the family name. The story now reverts to Mr Bumble, who, newly married to the workhouse matron, Mrs Corney, has been promoted master of the establishment. A stranger, Monks, plies Mr Bumble for information regarding Oliver's birth. By arrangement, the Bumbles visit Monks' lodgings, where Mrs Bumble relates how a nurse robbed Oliver's mother's corpse of a wedding ring and gold locket - the only evidence of Oliver's true identity. These, Monks triumphantly casts into the river. 6. HONOUR AMONGST THIEVES? Nancy takes a grave risk visiting Rose. She tells of the threat of Monks - a bargain struck between Monks and Fagin to capture Oliver and turn him into a thief. She then reveals that Monks is actually Oliver's elder half-brother. Meanwhile, Rose takes Oliver to visit Mr Brownlow, who decides that the recovery of Oliver's inheritance is their primary objective. Back at Fagin's, Sikes asserts his brutal authority over the 'untamed' Nancy, and Fagin hires Noah Claypole to follow Nancy. 7. A SAVAGE DEED. Watched closely by Noah, Nancy attends a secret meeting with Brownlow. Sikes is told about Nancy's betrayal and, fuelled by Fagin, he returns home and bludgeons her to death. 8. ON THE RUN. Recognising Monks as Oliver's half-brother, Brownlow tells Monks what he knows - how Monks' father was forced into a loveless marriage, giving birth to Monks, and how later he met his true love, of which Oliver was the unfortunate issue. He accuses Monks of involvement in Nancy's murder, at which point Monks promises to make amends. Meanwhile, Sikes, still on the run, takes refuge with fellow-robbers Toby Crackit, Mr Chitling and Kags. When the police arrive, Sikes tries to escape but accidentally hangs himself on his own rope. 9. JUST DESERTS. Pressured by Brownlow, Monks now fills in the missing details, in which it turns out that Rose is Oliver's sister. Harry Maylie again proposes to Rose, and later they get married. The scene turns to Fagin's trial. He is found guilty and spends his last despairing days alone in his cell. Brownlow decides to divide Oliver's inheritance equally between Monks and Oliver, and to adopt Oliver himself. The novel ends beside the grave of Oliver's mother, Agnes

Oliver Twist is notable for Dickens' unromantic portrayal of criminals and their sordid lives. The book exposed the cruel treatment of many a waif-child in London, which increased international concern in what is sometimes known as "e;The Great London Waif Crisis"e;: the large number of orphans in London in the Dickens era. The story is about an orphan Oliver Twist, who endures a miserable existence in a workhouse and then is placed with an undertaker. He escapes and travels to London where he meets the Artful Dodger, leader of a gang of juvenile pickpockets. Oliver is led to the lair of their elderly criminal trainer Fagin, naively unaware of their unlawful activities. An early example of the social novel, the book calls the public's attention to various contemporary evils, including the Poor Law, child labour and the recruitment of children as criminals. Dickens mocks the hypocrisies of his time by surrounding the novel's serious themes with sarcasm and dark humour.

Charles Dickens's famous second novel recounts the story of a boy born in the workhouse and raised in an infant farm as he tries to make his way in the world. Intended to raise feeling against the Poor Law Amendment Act of 1834 (which had emphasized the workhouse as an appropriate means of dealing with the problem of poverty), Oliver Twist also provides a sweeping portrait of London life in the 1830s-including the life of the criminal elements in society. Oliver Twist was first published in serialised form (with illustrations by George Cruikshank) in Bentley's Miscellany between February 1837 and April 1839. It was issued with some corrections and revisions in ten numbers in 1846 by Bradbury and Evans (which then also issued the same text in a single volume). Each of these ten numbers, including the Cruikshank illustrations and the advertisements, is included in this facsimile reprint of the 1846 edition. This is one of a series from Broadview Press of facsimile reprint editions-editions that provide readers with a direct sense of these works as the Victorians themselves experienced them.

The editor has corrected printers' errors and annotated unfamiliar terms and allusions. Three illustrations by George Cruikshank and a map of Oliver's London accompany the text. Backgrounds and Sources focuses on The Poor Law Amendment Act of 1834, central both to Dickens and to the characters in Oliver Twist. The act's far-reaching implications are considered in source materials that include parlimentary debates on The Poor Laws, a harrowing account of an 1835 Bedfordshire riot, and An Appeal to Fallen Women, Dickens' 1847 open letter to London's prostitutes urging them to turn their backs on debauchery and neglect.

A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Dickens' famous novel, starring Pam Ferris, Adjoa Andoh and Tim McInnerny with Edward Long as Oliver. Born and brought up in the appalling deprivation of the workhouse, the orphaned Oliver escapes and heads for London, only to fall into the hands of the notorious Fagin and his gang of child thieves. But Oliver is an innocent at heart, and the attempts by Fagin and the impudently witty Artful Dodger to teach him the tricks of the pick-pocket's trade lead only to his almost immediate capture. His subsequent rescue, by the kindly Mr Brownlow, is only the beginning of a series of adventures that lead him to an incredible discovery. This adaptation of Dickens' second novel is a moving tale of innocence and corruption. It features some of his most vital characters, from the diabolical Fagin to the murderous Bill Sikes and his mistress Nancy, whose love for Oliver is both her redemption and her downfall.
