Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens( Book )

5 editions published between 1935 and 2019 in French and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Orphelin, Olivier Twist passe sa petite enfance entre la maison de l'horrible Mme Marin, sorte de Cruella paroissiale, et le work-house, un asile pour indigents où la loi sur les pauvres affame les pensionnaires afin qu'ils ne prennent pas goût à l'oisiveté. Placé chez M. Sowerberry, fabricant de cercueils et croque-mort de son état, Olivier s'enfuit pour gagner Londres. Sa naïveté le conduit droit dans un repaire de malfaiteurs, une école du vice où l'on apprend à détrousser discrètement les passants ... Le jour où il comprend enfin ce qu'on attend de lui, il se fait arrêter. Le plaignant est M. Brownlow, un notable. Frappé par la ressemblance qui existe entre le petit Olivier et un certain portrait qu'il a chez lui, le vieil homme recueille l'orphelin, mais pas pour longtemps : ses anciens amis les voleurs ont bien des raisons de vouloir le retrouver

The old curiosity shop by Charles Dickens( Book )

2 editions published in 1947 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sensational bestselling story of Little Nell, the beautiful child thrown into a shadowy, terrifying world, seems to belong less to the history of the Victorian novel than to folklore, fairy tale, or myth. The sorrows of Nell and her grandfather are offset by Dickens's creation of a dazzling contemporary world inhabited by some of his most brilliantly drawn characters-the eloquent ne'er-do-well Dick Swiveller; the hungry maid known as the "Marchioness"; the mannish lawyer Sally Brass; Quilp's brow-beaten mother-in-law; and Quilp himself, the lustful, vengeful dwarf, whose demonic energy makes a vivid counterpoint to Nell's purity
