Description:
The editor has corrected printers' errors and annotated unfamiliar terms and allusions. Three illustrations by George Cruikshank and a map of Oliver's London accompany the text. 'Backgrounds and Sources' focuses on The Poor Law Amendment Act of 1834, central both to Dickens and to the characters in Oliver Twist. The act's far-reaching implications are considered in source materials that include parlimentary debates on The Poor Laws, a harrowing account of an 1835 Bedfordshire riot, and 'An Appeal to Fallen Women,' Dickens' 1847 open letter to London's prostitutes urging them to turn their backs on 'debauchery and neglect.' Ten letters on Oliver Twist, written between 1837 and 1864, are reprinted, including those to the novel's publisher, the novel's illustrator, and John Forster, Dickens' close friend and future biographer. In addition, readers can trace the evolution of the novel by examining Dickens' installment and chapter-division plans and enjoy 'Sikes and Nancy,' the text of a public reading Dickens composed and performed often to large audiences.
'Early Reviews' provides eight witty, insightful, and at times impassioned responses to the novel and to Oliver's plight by William Makepeace Thackeray and John Forster (anonymously), among others. 'Criticism' includes twenty of the most significant interpretations of Oliver Twist published in this century. Included are essays by Henry James, Ge Please click here to ask a question
