Oliver Twist, published in 1838, is one of Charles Dickens' best-known and well-loved works.

Oliver is born in a workhouse in the first half of the nineteenth century. His mother dies during his birth, and he is sent to an orphanage where he is sent to an orphanage where he is poorly treated. Oliver runs away from there and finds himself under the wing of the London crime boss Fagin. Along with other young thieves working for Fagin, Oliver turns to a life of crime against his better judgment. Although it is here, in the midst of wickedness, that he finds the only kindness he has known.

The story ends on a positive note with Oliver finding happiness under the care of a law-abiding, wealthy family.

Oliver Twist is notable for Dickens' unromantic portrayal of criminals and their sordid lives. The book calls the publics attention to various contemporary evils, including the Poor Law, child labour and the recruitment of children as criminals. The novel is not only, a brilliant work of art but also a tremendously important document in social history.
