Oliver Twist is a novel written by Charles Dickens and published in 1838. The story is set in 19th-century England and tells the tale of an orphan named Oliver Twist, who is born into poverty and experiences a series of unfortunate events throughout his life.

The novel begins with Oliver’s birth in a workhouse and follows his life as he is mistreated by those around him. Oliver eventually runs away to London where he meets the Artful Dodger and becomes involved in a gang of pickpockets led by the infamous Fagin. Despite his involvement in criminal activity, Oliver is a kind-hearted and innocent character who longs for a better life.

One of the major themes of the novel is social injustice. Dickens portrays the harsh realities of poverty and the cruelty of those who exploit the vulnerable for their own gain.

Other characters such as Mr. Bumble, the Beadle, and Bill Sikes also play important roles in the story, each adding to the overall sense of despair and corruption.

Dickens’ writing style is well-known for its vivid imagery and use of language. He paints a picture of 19th-century London, describing its sights, sounds, and smells in great detail. His use of dialect and colloquial language adds authenticity to the characters and setting.

In conclusion, Oliver Twist is a powerful novel that shines a light on the injustices and inequalities of 19th-century England.
