Charles Dickens’ second novel, Oliver Twist, or The Parish Boy’s Progress, was first published as a serial (in monthly instalments) in the magazine Bentley’s Miscellany from February 1837 to April 1839. The novel was inspired by Robert Blincoe’s account of his childhood spent in a cotton mill. Oliver Twist, an orphan, is born in a workhouse and later sold off into an apprenticeship. Dickens situates his protagonist amid the squalid lives of beggars, criminals and petty thieves. Trapped in a world of corruption and poverty, Oliver with his pure heart is rewarded with a fairytale ending. The dark reality of child labour, the effects of industrialisation and the condition of orphans in London in the mid-19th century form the crux of Dickens’ heart-rending novel. Great Expectations revolves around the life of an orphan nicknamed Pip. The novel, set in the 19th century, traces the psychological growth of Pip in three stages: his childhood in the marshes of Kent, his journey from the rural environs to the London metropolis, and finally his reluctant reconciliation with the vanity of false promises and values. The cast includes the cold yet ethereal Estella, the kind-hearted blacksmith Joe, the ‘pale young gentleman’ Herbert Pocket and the affluent, eccentric spinster Miss Havisham, among others. George Bernard Shaw said of the novel, ‘All of one piece and consistently truthful.’

At the heart of Charles Dickens's second novel, first published in 1838, is a story as much about crime and poverty as it is about justice and charity. Orphaned at birth, Oliver Twist grows up under the loveless, relentless watch of a workhouse. He runs away with hopes for a better life in London, only to become--at the hands of the unforgettable Artful Dodger--a guileless pawn in a gang of pickpockets and robbers working for Fagin, one of Dickens's most controversial villains. Full of ingenious plot twists, at turns thrilling, tragic, tender, and sharp-eyed, The Adventures of Oliver Twist is among Dickens's most enduring classics.

Oliver Twist is a story of a young orphan, Oliver, and his attempts to stay good in a depraved society. The book exposes the miseries of poverty and its degrading effects through society. Oliver embodies innocence and incorruptibility. He was born and raised in a workhouse, then forced to live with a group of petty criminals and finally was adopted by a generous old man to live with him happily. He faces many obstacles and lives through many horrors throughout the novel. The cruelty of institutions and bureaucracies towards the unfortunate is perhaps the pre-eminent theme of the book, and essentially what makes it a social novel. Like a true Dickensian narrative, the dichotomy between Good and Evil are very clearly marked out. The story with many twists and turns keeps the reader engaged and imparts hope that benevolence can overcome and depravity.

Drei der bedeutendsten Romane der Weltliteratur David Copperfield: David Copperfield wird nach dem Tod beider Elternteile von seinem Stiefvater auf die Schule des brutalen Mr. Creakle geschickt. Dort verlebt er eine bedrückende Zeit und wird bereits als Zehnjähriger zur Fabrikarbeit gezwungen. Elend und Ausbeutung stehen im Zeitalter der blühenden Industrialisierung auf der Tagesordnung, und David kann sich den unerträglichen Bedingungen nur durch die Flucht zu seiner Tante Betsey entziehen... ›David Copperfield‹ gilt als einer der bedeutendsten Kindheits- und Jugendromane der Weltliteratur. Nikolas Nickleby: In Charles Dickens' drittem Roman führt der junge Nikolaus Nickleby einen erbitterten Kampf gegen soziale Ungerechtigkeit und ausbeuterische Machenschaften. Nach dem Tod des Vaters nimmt Nikolas auf Anraten seines Onkels Ralph eine Stelle als Hilfslehrer an. Die Zustände an der Schule sind jedoch schockierend, und gemeinsam mit seinem Zögling Smike sieht er bald nur noch die Möglichkeit der Flucht... Selten schildert ein Meisterwerk der Weltliteratur so spannend, liebevoll und kritisch die Entwicklung und den Überlebenskampf eines jungen Mannes. Oliver Twist: Der Waisenjunge Oliver Twist wächst im Armenhaus einer englischen Kleinstadt auf. Um seinem Elend zu entkommen, glieht der Junge eines Tages ohne einen Penny in der Tasche nach London. In der Großstadt angekommen, gerät er jedoch sofort in die Fänge des Hehlers Fagin, der eine Bande jugendlicher Taschendiebe anführt... Der Roman wurde bei seinem Erscheinen kontrovers diskutiert, weil die kritisch-realistisch Darstellung des Armenmilieus die Zeitgenossen schockierte. Heute gilt er als einer der größten Klassiker der englischen Literatur.

Originally serialized in "Bentley's Miscellany" between February 1837 and April 1839, "Oliver Twist," is Charles Dickens's second novel, the classic story of the struggles of a young orphan in 19th century England. When his mother dies in childbirth, Oliver Twist finds himself in a situation of dire poverty. At the time, those who could not afford to provide for themselves were often forced into servitude under the harsh Poor Laws of 19th century England. At the age of nine, Oliver is set to work picking and weaving oakum at the workhouse where he lives. The circumstances of Oliver's life are brutal, with meager food, clothing, and shelter, he finds himself in an unenviable position. "Oliver Twist," is an early example of social criticism, in which Dickens effectively draws attention to the political issues of child labor and the struggles of the poor. Drawing upon his own experiences as an impoverished youth, Dickens brought to light the struggles of the lower classes in a way that continues to resonate with audiences until this day. This edition includes an introduction by Edwin Percy Whipple and is printed on premium acid-free paper.
