ByCharles Dickens

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
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. We're pleased to bring you Jørgen Veisland's introduction to Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist. To Veisland Oliver Twist shows that "concealed identity, like other hidden phantasmal objects, is the mark of the outcast." This edition combines Dickens' text with George Cruikshank's original illustrations, Veisland's introduction, and a newly written biography of Dickens. Know Your Classics is a collection of carefully selected texts offered in a new, informative and entertaining frame. With an informative introduction and a new biography each of our books in this series are given a modern, inviting typography that places them in our contemporary era. These are unmissable remixes of classics everyone should read.
