Es la primera novela en lengua inglesa que tiene a un nino como protagonista.Asimismo, destaca por su tratamiento del mundo de los criminales y sus sordidas vidas, practicamente carente de Romanticismo.Oliver Twist es una de las primeras novelas sociales de lahistoria de la literatura, pues llama la atencion a sus lectores sobre varios males sociales de la epoca, tales como el trabajo infantil o la utilizacion de ninos para cometer delitos. Dickens se burla de la hipocresia de su epoca tratando estos temas tan serios con sarcasmo yhumor negro. La novela pudo haber sido inspirada por la historia de Robert Blincoe, unhuerfano cuyo relato sobre la dureza de su vida como trabajador infantil en un molino de algodon tuvo una gran difusion en los anos 1830."

Oliver Twist is a story of a young orphan, Oliver, and his attempts to stay good in a depraved society. The book exposes the miseries of poverty and its degrading effects through society. Oliver embodies innocence and incorruptibility. He was born and raised in a workhouse, then forced to live with a group of petty criminals and finally was adopted by a generous old man to live with him happily. He faces many obstacles and lives through many horrors throughout the novel. The cruelty of institutions and bureaucracies towards the unfortunate is perhaps the pre-eminent theme of the book, and essentially what makes it a social novel. Like a true Dickensian narrative, the dichotomy between Good and Evil are very clearly marked out. The story with many twists and turns keeps the reader engaged and imparts hope that benevolence can overcome and depravity.

Charles Dickens needs no formal introduction, having been the most popular English writer of the 19th century and still one of the most popular writers in history today. Dickens was obsessed with reading, making him a natural journalist by the age of 20, when he began a career in journalism. Along the way, he also began writing his own short stories and materials, often serializing them in monthly installments in publications, a popular method of publishing in the 19th century. Unlike most writers, Dickens would not write an entire story before it began its serialization, allowing him to work on the fly and leave plot lines up in the air with each opportunity. By the time he died at the relatively young age of 58 from a stroke, he was already Europe’s most famous writer. His obituary noted that Dickens was a “sympathiser with the poor, the suffering, and the oppressed.” Dickens was interred in Westminster Abbey, a rare honor bestowed only among the greatest and most accomplished Britons. Many of Dickens’ novels were written with the concept of social reform in mind, and Dickens’ work was often praised for its realism, comic genius and unique personalities. At the same time, however, Dickens’ ability as a writer was nearly unrivaled, with his ability to write in prose unquestioned and unmatched.
