'With the strength of his dreams, he changes his destiny.' That, in essence, describes the incredible tale of Oliver Twist. Oliver endures a series of hardships. Hunger, slavery, and the absence of his family are amongst the struggles he must face alone. However, his courage helps him to overcome these obstacles and combat adversity. Dickens’ novel depicts the world with amazing accuracy – outlining its darkness and its vices. Men are presented as manipulators and imposters. Yet, he also highlights a glimmer of hope, finding amusement through ridiculing absurd situations and grotesque characters. His work makes us able to laugh rather than cry.
