A melodrama of honest youth triumphing over vice and injustice, this novel is an indignant protest against cruelty and oppression, most memorably encapsulated in Dickens's portrayal of Mr Squeers and his wicked boarding school - a passage which helped to reform the Victorian education system.

Charles Dickens was born in 1812 and grew up in poverty. This experience influenced ‘Oliver Twist’,’ the second of his fourteen major novels, which first appeared in 1837. When he died in 1870 he was buried in Poets’ Corner in Westminster Abbey as an indication of his huge popularity as a novelist, which endures to this day.
