Or maybe real nearby
He may be pouring her coffee
She may be straighting this tie!
Maybe in a house
All hidden by a hill
She's sitting playing piano,
He's sitting paying a bill!
Betcha they're young
Betcha they're smart
Bet they collect things
Like ashtrays, and art!
Betcha they're good --
(Why shouldn't they be?)
Their one mistake Rotate axis and drag frames
to change balance Was giving up me!
So maybe now it's time,
And maybe when I wake
They'll be there calling me "Baby"...
Betcha he reads
Betcha she sews
Maybe she's made me
A closet of clothes!
Maybe they're strict
As straight as a line...
Don't really care
As long as they're mine!
So maybe now this prayer's
The last one of it's kind...
Won't you please come get your "Baby" Fagin Fagin is a criminal. He takes in young orphan boys and trains them to pick pockets for him and do other crimes. Fagin also purchases stolen goods, and uses others to commit crimes instead of him doing them himself. Bill Sikes Sikes is a pro at burglary who was taught by Fagin. He is Nancy’s lover, who he treats with grudging affection and cruelty. Mr. Brownlow Mr. Brownlow is Oliver’s first benefactor Setting Oliver Twist is set in the 1830’s in England Mood The mood of Oliver Twist at first was very dark and gloomy. As the story continues, the mood changes into hopefulness because Oliver still is determined that his family is out there somewhere. Style and Craft Use of Vocabulary- in the book Oliver Twist, Charles Dickens uses were strong vocabulary and words that aren’t used in our every day language. These words are hard to understand, but at the end of the book, the reader will be much stronger.
Word choice-Charles Dickens uses a lot of words that are combined together which sound a lot like how people talk in real life. For example, on page 13 “It’s humane too, gen’l’men, acause, even if they’ve stuck in the chimbley, roastin their feet makes ‘em struggle to hexricate themselves.” Even though this isn’t something we would hear everyday, Dickens makes it easy to understand how the characters would actually be talking. Theme Oliver Twist is a story of the battle between the “good” versus “evil”, with the evil continuously trying to outweigh the good Overall Recommendation Oliver Twist is a very challenging read. It is slow at first and
has very complex vocabulary, but in the end it is all worth it.
The reader will get to know Oliver and feel his pain
throughout the book. At the end of the story, there a
very exciting and unexpected twist that no reader
could have seen coming! I recommend Oliver Twist,
I don’t regret reading it and neither will you.
