Oliver Twist, And, Hard Times (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Oliver Twist, And, Hard Times I embrace the present opportunity of saying a few words in explanation of my aim and object in its pro duction. It is in some sort a duty with me to do so, in gratitude to those who sympathised with me and divined my purpose at the time, and who, perhaps, will not be sorry to have their impression confirmed under my own hand. It is, it seems, a very coarse and shocking circum stance, that some of the characters in these pages are chosen from the most criminal and degraded of Lon don's population; that Sikes is a thief, and Fagin a receiver of stolen goods that the boys are pick pockets, -and the girl is a prostitute.
