One of Dickens most enduringly popular stories is Oliver Twist,
an early work published 1837-8. Like many of his later novels,
its central theme is the hardship faced by the dispossessed
and those of the outside of tolite society. Oliver himself is
born in a workhouse and treated cruelly there as was the norm
at the time for pauper children, in particular by Bumble, a
parish council official or eadle The story follows Oliver as
he escapes the workhouse and runs away to London. Here he
receives an education in villainy from the criminal gang of Fagin
that includes the brutal thief Bill Sikes, the famous artful
Dodger and Nancy, Bill whore. Oliver is rescued by the
intervention of a benefactor - Mr Brownlow - but the mysterious
Monks gets the gang to kidnap the boy again. Nancy intervenes
but is murdered viciously by Sikes after she has showed some
redeeming qualities and has discovered Monk sinister intention.
The story closes happily and with justice for Bumble and the cruel
Monks who has hidden the truth of Oliver parentage out of malice.
Accusations were made that the book glamorised crime (like the ewgate
Group of the period) but Dickens wisely disassociated himself from criminal
His achievement was in fact in presenting the underworld and problems of
poverty to the well-off in a way rarely attempted previously.

Considering one will have to read the book first. Wouldn't it be a bit too much to ask of other people, especially if they don't know you....
