"This ain't the shop for justice."

Oliver is an orphan living on the dangerous London streets with no one but himself to rely on. Fleeing from poverty and hardship, he falls in with a criminal street gang who will not let him go, however hard he tries to escape. In Oliver Twist, Dickens graphically conjures up the capital's underworld, full of prostitutes, thieves and lost and homeless children, and gives a voice to the disadvantaged and abused.

Synopsis:

An orphan living on the dangerous London streets, Oliver has no one but himself to rely on. Fleeing from poverty and hardship, he falls in with a criminal street gang who will not let him go, however hard he tries to escape. The capital's underworld—replete with prostitutes, thieves and lost and homeless children—are displayed in this realistic and gritty look at the disadvantaged and abused.

About the Author

Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was 12 years old when he was sent to work in a shoe polish factory because his father had been imprisoned for debt. One of his first successes as an author, Dickens soon followed Oliver Twist (1838) with such classics as David Copperfield (1849) and A Tale of Two Cities (1859). George Cruikshank (1792–1878) was a noted caricaturist and provided illustrations for the original edition of Oliver Twist.
