Book Name: Oliver Twist--Chapter Three

Author Name: Charles Dickens

Oliver Twist, one of the most famous works of Charles Dickens’, is a novel reflecting the tragic fact of the life in Britain in 18th century.

The author who himself was born in a poor family wrote this novel in his twenties. He wants to expose the horror and violence hidden underneath the narrow and dirty streets in London.

This is a novel about a named Oliver Twist of abandoned baby. He was sadly educated in an orphanage for 9 years. Then, he was taken to the coffin shop owner there as an apprentice. Because of the unbearable

hunger, violence and insult, he fled to London and unfortunately straying of thieves. Then he was adopted to a kind gentleman who was named Bumble. However, he was again tied back by these thieves. Finally, Nancy saved Oliver and told Bumble that Oliver was his grandson. Unfortunately, Nancy was murdered by these thieves. At last, the police destroyed these thieves. Luckily, Oliver found his families and lived together.

This chapter describes Oliver’s miserable life in the orphanage. He was punished seriously because he wanted one more scoop of porridge. Due to his “fault”, he would be sold with the price of 5 pounds. The buyer is an appearance of evil man who cleaned up the chimney for a living. That decribed the man as a man whose villainous countenance was

a regular stamped receipt for cruely. Oliver said that he would rather die in the orphanage than go with him.

“The magistrates are not called upon to pronounce any opinion on the matter,” said the second old gentleman sharply. “Take the boy back to the workhouse, and treat him kindly. He seems to want it.”

This is Oliver’s current treat. Although this deal was not achieved, but the public were once informed that Oliver Twist was again To Let, and that five pounds would be paid to anybody who would take possession of him. I think little Oliver was so poor that he had no rights to decide the fate of him.

However, there are some sentences rich with imagery. For example, “The donkey was in a state of profound abstraction: wondering, probably, whether he was destined to be regaled with a cabbage-stalk or two when he had disposed of the two sacks of soot with the little cart was laden; so, without noticing the word of command, he jogged onward.”

Through some sections, we can see Mr. Bumble is a very kind gentleman. On the way to the magistrate, Mr. Bumble instructed Oliver that all he would have to do, and say, when the gentleman asked him if he wanted to be apprenticed, that he should like it very much indeed, both of which injunctions Oliver promised to obey: the rather as Mr. Bumble threw in a gentle hint. For example, “My boy!” said the old gentleman, “you look pale and alarmed. What is the matter?” “Well!” said Mr.

Bumble, raising his hands and eyes with most impressive solemnite. “Well! Of all the arful and designing orphans that ever I see, Oliver, you are one of the most bare-facedest.” “The magistrates are not called upon to pronounce any opinion on the matter,” said Mr. Bumble. “Take the boy to the workhouse, and treat him kindly. He seems to want it.”

In this novel, Oliver, Nancy and Miss Rose are the represents of kindness. They are all born in misery with full of pain, however, another common point is that they grew in the dark world full of sin. But, they all keep this piece of pure land in their heart. Varieties of hardships cannot make them fall. On the contrary, it shows their pure and excellent

qualities. Finally, the strength of justice defeats the worse successfully. Even through Nancy was murdered by thieves, her death caused the influence of the justice strength. The spirit of the deceased destroyed the represent of envy strength--- the fagin gangs. This novel also tells us the truth that justice strengh always destroys envy strengh.

How can such a little boy who had already suffered oppressive affliction remain pure in body and mind? The reason is the nature of goodness.
