Charles Dickens’ second novel, Oliver twist, or the parish boy’s progress, was first published as a serial in the magazine bentley’s miscellany from February 1837 to April 1839. The novel was inspired by Robert blincoe’s account of his childhood spent in a cotton Mill. Oliver twist, an orphan, is born in a Workhouse and later sold off into an apprenticeship. Dickens situates his protagonist amid the squalid lives of beggars, criminals and petty thieves. Trapped in a world of corruption and poverty, Oliver with his pure heart is rewarded with a fairytale ending. The dark reality of child labour, the effects of industrialisation and the condition of orphans in London in the mid-19th century Y form the crux of Dickens’ heartrending novel.

He created some of the world’s most well-known fictional characters and is generally regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian period. Born in Portsmouth, England, on 7 February 1812, his early childhood experiences were much like those depicted in his novel—David Copperfield. He published his first novel, Oliver Twist, in 1837. it was followed by Nicholas Nickleby (1838) and the Old Curiosity Shop (1841). A Christmas Carol (1843) is the most popular perhaps of all his works. in 1859, he published a Tale of Two Cities, his best-known work of historical fiction. Dickens suffered a stroke and died on 9 June 1870, aged 58.
