Charles Dickens: Oliver Twist

The_Writings_of_Charles_Dickens_v4_p12_(engraving)Oliver Twist, or the Parish Boy's Progress is the second novel by Charles Dickens. Originally published in serial form between 1837 and 1839, it caused a sensation with sharp satire of early Victorian social attitudes, and its unsparing portrayal of a young orphan's encounter with a world of poverty and crime.
