Today I want to speak about the book Oliver Twist. Charles Dickens one of the most important writers of the 19-century wrote this book.
Charles Dickens was born in 1812,the first years he lived in a happily childhood, but then his father got imprisoned; the grimmest time of his life began. Charles Dickens worked 2 years in a blacking factory.
He described this awful time in the early chapters of the book David Copperfield. Later he worked as a clerk in a lawyer's office. In 1831 he became a parliamentary reporter, working for The True Sun. In 1836 Charles Dickens married Catherine Hogarth. In the same year he got a job, writing the copy for what is intended to be a series of comic sporting pictures. The result was his comic masterpiece The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club.
At the age of 24 Mr. Dickens had achieved fame and nationwide popularity. His next bock, however, was a complete contrast of Pickwick. Oliver Twist was remarkable foe the appearance of new qualities in his writing revealing his sympathise for the poor, his hatred of social injustice, and his ability of creating a new atmosphere of horror.
The books Nicholas Nickleby, Master Humphrey's Clock, and The Old Curiosity Shop followed. The Old Curiosity Shop was one of his most popular of his novels at that time.
Barnaby Rudge in 1841 was the first of his historical novels. In 1842 Charles Dickens visited America, he showed his disappointment over this country in the bocks American Novels and Martin Chuzzelwit. Charles Dickens also wrote Christmas stories, like Christmas Carol.
Later the bocks Dombley and Son, Household Words and in 1850 David Copperfield followed. David Copperfield was the most autobiographical of his novels; this was also the best one of the best and the most readed one today. The next great novel was Black House in 1853, a satire on the law's delays. Books like Hard Times, Little Dorrit, A Tale of Two Cities; his second historic novel; Expectations, Our Mutual Friend and his last, unfinished at his dead The Mystery of Edwin Drood followed.
In 1870 Charles Dickens die with the age of 58 years. Critics say, that Dickens was in some ways rather vulgar. Social protest was also an important element of his work. People said that as a social reformer in 19- century London, Dickens was more a poet than politician.
