    • About the Edition

      Considered by many to be the greatest of all English novelists, this collection of four of his best and most successful books shows Charles Dickens at the height of his powers. Oliver Twist, published in 1838 and set in London"s Victorian underworld, is a novel of social protest, a morality tale and detective story. The orphan Oliver, Viper Fagan, Bill Sykes, and the Artful Dodger are some of the most memorable characters in all of literature. A Tale of Two Cities, published in 1859, is Dickens"s great novel of the French Revolution. In it he brings to life a time of terror and treason, when a starving populace rose in fury to overthrow a corrupt and decaying regime. the human story within the Revolution is the duality of the heart, embodied by two of his greatest characters: Charles Darnay and Sidney Carton.

      Great Expectations, published in 1861, is the story of Pip and the mysterious fortune which falls into his lap. It is both comic and tragic, filled with memories of childhood fairy tales with a twist. One of Dickens" greatest achievements, it is a novel, as Graham Greene comments, filled with secret prose giving us, "the sense of a minds peaking to itself with no one to listen." A Christmas Carol, published in 1843, is his most beloved story, as much a part of Christmas as mistletoe and carolers. Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim, Bob Crachit and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future all occupy a special place in our hearts and memories.
