Read full description of the books:
Oliver Twist is a powerful story of crime, poverty and violence. It is one of Charles Dickens' most widely read novels and was first published in 1837. The year before, young Charles Dickens had suddenly leaped from obscurity to success with The Pickwick Papers.
The setting of Oliver Twist is in startling contrast to the happy world of Mr. Pickwick. Its picture of crime and brutality surprised readers who thought of Dickens only as a comic writer. But the author actually had been born into this very world of which he wrote: a world of debtors' prisons, almshouses, slums and poverty.
Oliver was born and reared in a workhouse and apprenticed to a brutal master. He ran away to London. Starving, he was taken from the streets by Fagin, a master criminal who corrupted homeless boys by teaching them the tricks of a professional thief.
Oliver's early career and the events that lead to his rescue present every facet of the genius that has made Charles Dickens perhaps the greatest of all English novelists.
It is a mark of Dickens' genius that today the sharply observed scenes and vivid characters of the early nineteenth century still burgeon with life in the pages of this great novel.

Read information about the authorCharles John Huffam Dickens (7 February 1812 – 9 June 1870) was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's best-known fictional characters and is regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. His works enjoyed unprecedented popularity during his lifetime, and by the twentieth century critics and scholars had recognised him as a literary genius. His novels and short stories enjoy lasting popularity.
Born in Portsmouth, Dickens left school to work in a factory when his father was incarcerated in a debtors' prison. Despite his lack of formal education, he edited a weekly journal for 20 years, wrote 15 novels, five novellas, hundreds of short stories and non-fiction articles, lectured and performed extensively, was an indefatigable letter writer, and campaigned vigorously for children's rights, education, and other social reforms.
Dickens was regarded as the literary colossus of his age. His 1843 novella, A Christmas Carol, remains popular and continues to inspire adaptations in every artistic genre. Oliver Twist and Great Expectations are also frequently adapted, and, like many of his novels, evoke images of early Victorian London. His 1859 novel, A Tale of Two Cities, set in London and Paris, is his best-known work of historical fiction. Dickens's creative genius has been praised by fellow writers—from Leo Tolstoy to George Orwell and G. K. Chesterton—for its realism, comedy, prose style, unique characterisations, and social criticism. On the other hand, Oscar Wilde, Henry James, and Virginia Woolf complained of a lack of psychological depth, loose writing, and a vein of saccharine sentimentalism. The term Dickensian is used to describe something that is reminiscent of Dickens and his writings, such as poor social conditions or comically repulsive characters.
On 8 June 1870, Dickens suffered another stroke at his home after a full day's work on Edwin Drood. He never regained consciousness, and the next day, five years to the day after the Staplehurst rail crash, he died at Gad's Hill Place. Contrary to his wish to be buried at Rochester Cathedral "in an inexpensive, unostentatious, and strictly private manner," he was laid to rest in the Poets' Corner of Westminster Abbey. A printed epitaph circulated at the time of the funeral reads: "To the Memory of Charles Dickens (England's most popular author) who died at his residence, Higham, near Rochester, Kent, 9 June 1870, aged 58 years. He was a sympathiser with the poor, the suffering, and the oppressed; and by his death, one of England's greatest writers is lost to the world." His last words were: "On the ground", in response to his sister-in-law Georgina's request that he lie down.
