Charles Dickens Biography

Charles DickensCharles Dickens was an English writer of the Victorian era that has penned one of the best books ever written and has created some of the best-known characters in the literary world.

Plot

Oliver Twist is a boy who lost his mother just after his birth on the streets of 1830s England.

He is taken to a baby farm where he spends the first nine years of his life under the supervision of Mrs. Mann. He is there taken care of poorly, and as a matter of fact, the whole farm is run the same way.

On his ninth birthday, Mr. Bumble takes him to a workhouse for adults, and he remains there for half a year.

The boys living there are all under-fed, and in one such instance when they feel desperately hungry they come up with the idea to draw lots, and the loser of the game must go and ask for another portion of gruel.

Of course, the task is given to Oliver, and he comes forward on the next meal, trembling, and asks for more gruel.

Everyone gets upset, and the board that is running the workhouse offers £5 to anyone who would want to take the boy and make him his apprentice.
