At the age of 25, Charles Dickens was famous in his homeland for being the best “inimitable” contemporary novelist. His first novel The Pickwick Papers, a bright masterpiece of a comic prose, made him the favourite writer of the English-speaking world. And the second novel Oliver Twist only increased this reputation. It was for the first time in the history of English literature that the author made a boy, Oliver Twist the main character of the novel. The reader is overwhelmed with emotions by the story of the boy’s life, hard times that he has.
