  • Oliver Twist : Om Illustrated Classics

    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.
