(From the publisher):
Dickens's classic morality tale of a starving orphan caught between opposing forces of good and evil is a powerful indictment of Victorian England's Poor Laws. Filled with dark humor and an unforgettable cast of characters - Oliver Twist, Fagin, Nancy, Bill Sykes, and the Artful Dodger, to name a few - Dickens's second novel is a compelling social satire that has remained popular since it was first serialized.
Originally published serially in Bentley's Miscellany in monthly installments, February 1837 to April 1839. Each installment featured an illustration by George Cruikshank.
