Although many of his other novels are brilliant there is a power in Oliver Twist that I believe Dickens never managed to retrieve. It is as if he was sent to this earth with the sole purpose of writing this book. He dared, like no one before him, to mix different elements in his stories: there was satire and sentimentality, evil, storytelling immersed with subtexts and great leaps in space and time.

Moreover, Dickens had an incredible talent for intricate plots. He places them each in front of us, one after the other, giving them character and individuality. But it was not only the reality on the streets that provoked Dickens to write Oliver Twist. There were also more personal motives. She died suddenly in at only 17 years old. Her death was a shock and Dickens carried the memory of Mary with him for the rest of his life. She is almost certainly reincarnated in the pages of Oliver Twist.

- Bleak House by Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens - the abuser of women? The best Charles Dickens characters. The backstreets of London in the s were rife with prostitutes. As always, it was great poverty or despair that forced women, young or old, out on the streets. The reason I say poverty or despair is because women from the higher classes who became pregnant outside of marriage were often cast out on the streets and had no choice but to become prostitutes. A fallen woman therefore remained fallen.

In Oliver Twist Nancy represents this large group of unfortunate women.

Yes, she is perhaps a stereotype but Dickens writes about her with unmediated sympathy — her demise is one of the most gripping and gruesome elements of the book. But not one of them gave up on it and everyone reported being affected by the story of Nancy; her personality, her kindness and her misfortunes all struck a chord. For me Oliver Twist is a political novel. It is a furious critique of the treatment of orphans and poor children who were forced to spend their early lives in ghastly institutions.

When young Oliver takes his empty bowl and asks for more food, it is one of the most revolutionary acts ever depicted in a novel. How many people have found courage and power from this act of defiance? It speaks simply of the resilient spirit of the poor. This scene is one of the primary reasons that Oliver Twist will live on — the world is filled with suffering children, who endure the same deprivations as Oliver. Millions of children who wished that they had the courage Oliver had: to ask for some more food; to revolt.

Penguin Classics: Bleak House

Millions of children can identify with Oliver. And everywhere there are Fagin-like characters who profit from the misery of children, but who, much too rarely, have to face justice. All books published since have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price.

Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.
