"I've come to prefer Oxford's editions of my texts because of the usefulness of the explanatory notes and above all the inclusion of vital contextual information about publishing practices (serialization dates, etc.) and historical background that are essential to my nethod of instruction." --Prof. Martha Holmes, Univ. of Colorado
Charles Dickens was born in 1812 and grew up in poverty. This experience influenced 'Oliver Twist',' the second of his fourteen major novels, which first appeared in 1837. When he died in 1870 he was buried in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey as an indication of his huge popularity as a novelist, which endures to this day.
This book by Dickens is very interesting and makes for a good read that is appropriate for many different age levels.Published on April 24, 2013 by KGI
