"Oliver Twist," one of Charles Dickens' most enduring works, unfolds a compelling narrative of an orphaned boy's struggle against the stark injustices of 19th-century London. The story begins with the birth of Oliver in a workhouse, where his mother, who has died during childbirth, is just one of many tragic figures in the heartless world of poverty and exploitation. As a young boy, Oliver faces a harsh existence in the workhouse and eventually escapes to the bustling and treacherous streets of London.

In the city, Oliver becomes entangled with a gang of juvenile delinquents led by the malevolent Fagin and his menacing associate, Bill Sikes. Despite his innocence, Oliver is drawn into a world of crime, a stark contrast to his inherently good nature. As the narrative unfolds, readers follow Oliver's journey from the dangerous underworld to the compassionate embrace of Mr. Brownlow, who offers the boy a glimpse of a better life.

The narrative of "Oliver Twist" is a tale of contrasts, highlighting the stark divisions between the privileged and the impoverished, the forces of good and evil, and the corrupting influences of society. Dickens paints a vivid picture of the injustices and suffering experienced by the poor and orphaned, while also showcasing the potential for redemption and transformation. Through Oliver's journey, the narrative ultimately conveys a message of hope, resilience, and the belief that individuals, even those born into the most dire circumstances, can find their way to a better, more just life. Dickens' storytelling in "Oliver Twist" remains a powerful reminder of the enduring struggle for social justice and the resilience of the human spirit in the face of adversity.
