      Charles John Huffam Dickens 7 February 1812 9 June 1870 was an English writer and social critic He created some of the world s best known fictional characters and is regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era His works enjoyed unprecedented popularity during his lifetime, and by the twentieth century critics and scholars had recognised him as a literary genius His novels and short stories enjoy lasting popularity.Born in Portsmouth, Dickens left school to work in a factory when his father was incarcerated in a debtors prison Despite his lack of formal education, he edited a weekly journal for 20 years, wrote 15 novels, five novellas, hundreds of short stories and non fiction articles, lectured and performed extensively, was an indefatigable letter writer, and campaigned vigorously for children s rights, education, and other social reforms.Dickens was regarded as the literary colossus of his age His 1843 novella, A Christmas Carol, remains popular and continues to inspire adaptations in every artistic genre Oliver Twist and Great Expectations are also frequently adapted, and, like many of his novels, evoke images of early Victorian London His 1859 novel, A Tale of Two Cities, set in London and Paris, is his best known work of historical fiction Dickens s creative genius has been praised by fellow writers from Leo Tolstoy to George Orwell and G K Chesterton for its realism, comedy, prose style, unique characterisations, and social criticism On the other hand, Oscar Wilde, Henry James, and Virginia Woolf complained of a lack of psychological depth, loose writing, and a vein of saccharine sentimentalism The term Dickensian is used to describe something that is reminiscent of Dickens and his writings, such as poor social conditions or comically repulsive characters.On 8 June 1870, Dickens suffered another stroke at his home after a full day s work on Edwin Drood He never regained consciousness, and the next day, five years to the day after the Staplehurst rail crash, he died at Gad s Hill Place Contrary to his wish to be buried at Rochester Cathedral in an inexpensive, unostentatious, and strictly private manner, he was laid to rest in the Poets Corner of Westminster Abbey A printed epitaph circulated at the time of the funeral reads To the Memory of Charles Dickens England s most popular author who died at his residence, Higham, near Rochester, Kent, 9 June 1870, aged 58 years He was a sympathiser with the poor, the suffering, and the oppressed and by his death, one of England s greatest writers is lost to the world His last words were On the ground , in response to his sister in law Georgina s request that he lie down from


    1. Oliver Twist THE BOOK is crap and has NO songs in it, I couldn't believe it. So I googled and get this, it turns out they put those in the movie and Dickens had nothing to do with it! But since they were the best bit of the film, you can understand my horror and bereft sense of disappointment when I finally came to pick up the book. How could Dickens NOT have thought of having little Oliver sing Where Is Love when chucked into the cellar or Who Will Buy This Loverly Morning when he wakes up in h [...]

    2. I looooooooved this book. Another Dickensother favorite. 'Please, sir, I want some more.' Jane Austen and Charles Dickens have been dueling inside my WOW center for some time in a titanic, see-saw struggle for the title of greatest word-smither/story-crafter in all of English literature. Ms Austen previously caused heart-palpitations and a slew of gasms with Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility which left me spent like a cheap nickel. However, Sir Dickens, being a slick, wily devil resp [...]

    3. In recent years, I have become bewitched by all things gothic, and I was curious to discover to what extent gothic tropes and examplars may have influenced the imagery and structure of Dicken's first serious novel. Specifically, I was interested in how gothic elements might be expressed in "Oliver Twist"'s urban atmosphere. Had Hugo's Paris thieves' guild left its mark upon Fagin and his charges? Had Scott's Highland robbers' caves influenced Dickens' lowlife dens? Were these dirty London street [...]

    4. I have seen the 1968 academy award winning musical film “Oliver!” so many times that we eventually just bought the DVD. David Lean’s 1948 film starring Alec Guinness as Fagan and Robert Newton as Bill Sykes is another favorite. These film adaptations are so ubiquitous and so endearing that it is easy to forget what a rare accomplishment was Dickens original novel. One of Dickens earliest novels and like most was first published as a series of installments, Oliver Twist begins Dickens brill [...]

    5. Oliver Twist is one of Charles Dickens's best known stories. Characters such as the evil Fagin, with his band of thieves and villains, the Artful Dodger with "all the airs and manners of a man," the house-breaker Sikes and his dog, the conscience-stricken but flawed Nancy, the frail but determined Oliver, and the arrogant and hypocritical beadle Mr Bumble have taken on a life of their own and passed into our culture. Who does not recognise the sentence,"Please sir, I want some more!" or"If the l [...]

    6. This has been an exercise in exorcism for me.I have been enjoying reading Dickens lately but I knew that not until I tackled Oliver Twist would I have dealt with, and conquered, the devil.Images of black and white dreary images in a boxy TV have been projecting in the back of my mind since my childhood. And growing up and becoming an adult cooking garlic did not help. More substances were needed for a cleansing ritual. Oliver Twist continued to inspire horrific fear in me.Expectedly, the endless [...]

    7. ReviewI only read Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens once, back in 6th grade when I was about 12 years old. It was one of the classic books I'd received as a Christmas present, and I loved Dickens other children's stories, so I had to read this one. It's much more harsh tho, and might be a little difficult for a 12 year old to take in without having a better picture of the world. It's one of those books nagging at the back of my mind "Please re-read me. I bet you'll like me a whole lot more." And i [...]

    8. Read for school*Not one of my absolute favourite classics but overall it was a really enjoyable read! Interested to see what's said about it in my Victorian literature class!

    9. Despite having watched numerous retellings of this, I’ve not actually read it in its entirety. About five years ago I got half way through it and just stopped reading. I can’t remember why. My bookmark is still even in its place. Time to finish up.

    13. Dickens' famous story of a young orphan's struggle to survive on the streets of London is rightly one of his most remembered.Two outstanding characters have been contributed to literature - Fagin and Jack Dawkins the Artful Dodger.Dickens writes Fagin as a puppet master, controlling the orphaned children as pickpockets and the adults like Bill Sikes as thieves. His subterfuge of a penniless pauper with a kindly approach are at odds with the moments he steals gazing at his hidden stash of jewels [...]

    14. First of all, Oliver Twist is a shitty book. His second, following the comedic Pickwick Papers, it shows Dickens reaching for new territory: exposing the hopelessness and injustice of destitute life in London. But it's maudlin, obvious, predictable, lame. Oliver is such a simpering bitch that it's impossible to give a shit about him. Bad people want to use him; good people want to pamper him; you are bored. Dickens will write great books, but not yet.Second, Oliver Twist is a hateful book. Dicke [...]

    15. *Read it for school and decided to re-read it because I just loved this book so much!This book is worth re-reading again and again!I really love this classic, although it is so miserable and sad.I promise I will write a review for it after exams.

    16. I have in my 37 years of life avoided reading Charles Dickens. My reason: after having suffered through trying to read the so-called English literature of his era--think Thomas Harding, Emile Bronte and Mary Shelly--I figured Dickens would be no better. For some reason I can’t now recollect, I decided to give Dickens a try. I chose Oliver Twist. And was immediately hooked. Far from the boring narrative one finds the works of the other English writers I've already mentioned, Dickens has a very [...]

    18. Yes, but what became of Oliver? Let me tell you. He became Oliver Twisted. That’s what. He became Battersea’s premier caulker—that is, someone who seals gaps in drywall with waterproof sealant. But Fagin’s influence seeped into poor Oliver’s caulking duties. Instead of sealant, he would put sea lions, banana skins and discount copies of the musical Oliver! Homeowners would thrash in their beds to the bleating of moribund sea lions. Houses would slip away from their districts into horri [...]

    19. Κλασική ιστορία που είχα διαβάσει παιδί. Μου έχει αφήσει θετικές αναμνήσεις, αλλά νομίζω- το έχω ξαναπεί - ότι η κατηγοριοποίηση κλασικών έργων ως "παιδικά" μας κάνει να τα διαβάζουμε σε μικρή ηλικία και να μην τα καταλαβαίνουμε καλά. Μετά, όταν μεγαλώσουμε δεν επανερχόμαστε [...]

    20. Άλλο ένα βιβλίο που ξαναδιάβασα μετά από πάρα πολλά χρόνια. Ήταν κι αυτό ένα τσεκ για να ξέρω πότε θα το πασάρω στα δικά μου παιδιά και μάλλον θα το κάνω όταν δεν θα είναι παιδιά.Δεν μπορώ να καταλάβω γιατί βάζουμε στα παιδιά να διαβάζουν βιβλία με τέτοια περίπλοκα νοήματα. Δ [...]

    21. As expected of Charles Dickens, he really did a great work of literature that gives us the wisdom about good and evil in this world. And that despite the evilness that exist in this world, there is still goodness in majority.

    22. Copy-edited. Just in case you thought I was a complete doofus the first-time round.Yes, I am giving Oliver Twist one star. What went wrong here? Oh, about a million things. First, the single reason I decided to read this book is because I got a new dog recently, and I named him Oliver Twist. Then I realized I hadn't actually read his namesake, and I really like Dickens, and well it's orphans, right? and there was this lovely new Penguin hardcover all nubbly and pretty and . and now I'm three b [...]

    23. "This is where Dickens' social revolt is of more value than mere politics and avoids vulgarity of the novel with a purpose. His revolt is not a revolt of the commercialist against the feudalist, of the Nonconformist against the Churchman, of the Free-trader against the Protectionist, of the Liberal against the Tory. If he were among us now his revolt would not be the revolt of the Socialist against the Individualist, or of the Anarchist against the Socialist. His revolt was simply and solely the [...]

    24. Well, my dears (to acquire Fagin's dirty skin) Oliver Twist was a fascinating tale, about a poor boy and his adventure or progress through hardships, evil people and places, enemies and allies. Some say that this novel has anti-Semitic descriptions but, (although I don't want to defend Dickens, oh no, not that, my dears) I believe that Dickens made Fagin a Jewish caricature intentionally, as a way to criticise his Victorian society. Fagin had something fascinating in his character, he was talkin [...]

    25. It is hard to exit the original worlds created by Dickens. I usually manage it crying like a baby. Oliver Twist is top shelf storytelling. The characters are amazing. The setting is perfect. The plot manages to throw out hundreds of threads and ties them all together at the end, while never losing or boring the reader. Weakness? This is probably nit picking, but the story seems to work out too well in the end. Don't get me wrong, I know this is a social novel and FICTION, but I guess I just have [...]

    26. Having seen the stage musical and two movie versions, I have wanted for a long time to read the original. It was interesting to see how much was changed from the book. Fagin is a much more loathsome creature in the book--more treacherous, more cunning, more quick to anger, and not the jolly old naughty elf that he is in the musical version. Nancy is also more of a wretch, and not the kindly, big sister figure to Fagin's gang as she is portrayed in the film; making her decision to act on Oliver's [...]
