Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens( Book )

64 editions published between 1966 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oliver Twist is a classic tale of a boy of unknown parentage born in a workhouse and brought up under the cruel conditions to which pauper children were exposed in the Victorian England. With this novel, Dickens did not merely write a topical satire on the workhouse system and the role of the 1834 New Poor Law in fostering criminality. He created a moral fable about the survival of good, a romance, and a gripping story in which he exploited suspense and violence more effectively than any of his contemporaries. The new Oxford World's Classics edition of Oliver Twist is based on the authoritative Clarendon edition, which uses Dickens's revised text of 1846. It includes his preface of 1841 in which he defended himself against hostile criticism, and includes all twenty-four original illustrations by George Cruikshank. Stephen Gill's groundbreaking introduction gives a fascinating new account of the novel. He also provides appendices on Dickens and Cruikshank, on Dickens's Preface and the Newgate Novel Controversy, on Oliver Twist and the New Poor Law and on thieves' slang

This collection of lectures, broadcasts, reviews, and articles (several of which have not previously been published) embraces many aspects of the English literary scene in the middle of the nineteenth century. Though various in origin the collection has this unity: it has been the constant concern of its authors for many years that the great and lasting contribution of the mid-Victorian period to our literature should be fully vindicated, and its appraisal based upon secure foundations of critical scholarship. The book has moreover an obvious connection with the volume on the mid-nineteenth ce

The woman in white by Wilkie Collins( Book )

4 editions published between 1969 and 1975 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considered to be one of the first mystery novels, "The Woman in White" was a huge commercial success when it was first published in 1860. The story is told from the point of view of multiple narrators, no doubt the influence of Collin's legal training. The plot also explores the disadvantageous position of married women in nineteenth century. The Observer listed "The Woman in White" in the top 100 novels of all time. A read not to be missed by mystery lovers or avid reader. -- Amazon
