Oliver Twist; or, the Parish Boy's growth is writer Charles Dickens's moment novel, and used to be first released as a serial 1837–39.[1] the tale centres on orphan Oliver Twist, born in a workhouse and offered into apprenticeship with an undertaker. After escaping, Twist travels to London, the place he meets "The crafty Dodger", a member of a gang of sweet sixteen pickpockets led by way of the aged legal, Fagin.

Oliver Twist is amazing for its unromantic portrayal through Dickens of criminals and their sordid lives, in addition to for exposing the harsh remedy of the various orphans in London within the mid-19th century.[2] the choice name, The Parish Boy's growth, alludes to Bunyan's The Pilgrim's growth, in addition to the 18th-century sketch sequence by means of William Hogarth, A Rake's development and A Harlot's Progress.[3]

In this early instance of the social novel, Dickens satirises the hypocrisies of his time, together with baby labour, the recruitment of kids as criminals, and the presence of road young ones. the radical can have been encouraged through the tale of Robert Blincoe, an orphan whose account of operating as a toddler labourer in a cotton mill was once broadly learn within the 1830s. it's most likely that Dickens's personal younger reviews contributed as well
