Oliver Twist

Oliver Twist, an orphan set upon by misfortune and adversity, runs away from the workhouse and is lured into a den of thieves peopled by inimitable personages. Combining elements of romance and melodrama, Oliver Twist inaugurated a new kind of fiction. Edited and introduced by Jørgen Veisland, and with a new author biography, this volume makes the classical text by Charles Dickens available to new generations of readers. Our edition includes the original illustrations by George Cruikshank.
