9780140620467: Oliver Twist (Penguin Popular Classics)

The story of the orphan Oliver, who runs away from the workhouse only to be taken in by a den of thieves, shocked readers when it was first published. Dickens' tale of childhood innocence beset by evil depicts the dark criminal underworld of a London peopled by vivid and memorable characters - the arch-villain Fagin, the artful Dodger, the menacing Bill Sikes and the prostitute Nancy. Combining elements of Gothic Romance, the Newgate Novel and popular melodrama, in "Oliver Twist" Dickens created an entirely new kind of fiction, scathing in its indictment of a cruel society, and pervaded by an unforgettable sense of threat and mystery.

From the Publisher:

Paul Scofield, one of Britains most distinguished actors, and winner of an Academy Award for his performance in A Man of All Seasons, performs Oliver Twist with the verve, sliminess and character required to make it wonderful.

A pauper's child reared in a workhouse, Oliver served an apprenticeship in a loveless house. Despairing, he runs away and is befriended by a gang of young pickpockets who offer him the only welcome home he's ever known. He spends his life running from the crime and poverty he's known, looking for the love he lacks.

From the Inside Flap:

(back cover)
Orphaned as soon as he is born, Oliver Twist seems destined for a life of misery. Miraculously, he survives years of neglect, hunger, and violence. On his eighth birthday he is taken to the workhouse, and now his troubles are really about to begin.
Find out what happens to Oliver in this vivid graphic novel retelling of Charles Dickens' literary classic.
