Juliette E Smeed, M. D., & Ryder, Illustrato, F. E. (2020). Oliver Twist - The Poem. Retrieved from

Oliver's tale has been retold on stage, in graphic novels and on small and large screens. This time the story is transformed into a rhyming poem in which no actor or scene is overlooked. The abiding tale of childhood crime and redemption transformed yet again

Charles Dickens's Oliver Twist has delighted and terrified readers for generations. The novel contains some of the funniest, but also the most harrowing, scenes from nineteenth-century London in fiction. Characters such as Fagin, Nancy, and Bill Sikes have become legends of the criminal underworld, and the orphan boy himself an icon of suffering and redemption. The entire cast lives again in Oliver Twist - The Poem.

Oliver Twist is a story of suffering. Delicate readers will likely need buffering From many episodes drawn from the life Of this orphan boy born into sorrow and strife. And from villains whose deeds are so truly appalling, I have to conclude they were bred to the calling. The first of his problems was losing his mother. The second, a truly despicable brother – But more on that later, for here at the start There’s some critical background I have to impart. Like that Oliver’s mother expired at his birth And before she had even been laid in the earth Her beloved new babe was encountering dangers Alone in the hands of detestable strangers.
