Four of Charles Dickens’s most enduring and popular works in one volume.

Oliver Twist. Pip. The ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future. The characters of Charles Dickens live on in our imaginations long after we’ve read his renowned works of social commentary and vivid storytelling. Although these novels were written more than a hundred years ago, no home library today would be complete without them. This Canterbury Classics edition collects some of Dickens’s most famous and beloved works—The Adventures of Oliver TwistA Christmas CarolA Tale of Two Cities, and Great Expectations—in an elegant, leather-bound, keepsake edition. For those who’ve never read Dickens, it’s the perfect opportunity to experience his unique and compelling writing. And for those who are already Dickens devotees, an introduction by a renowned scholar will provide additional context and food for thought.

Notă biografică

Born on February 7, 1812, Charles Dickens is one of the most popular literary authors of all time. After a very tumultuous childhood, Dickens finally succeeded in getting his first story in a London periodical. As the number of his published works increased, so did his fame. Although he died in 1870, Dickens works are some of the most famous written works in the English language.


Mr. Bartlett is a deft hand at reinventing classic literature for live performances... "Oliver Twist," admittedly familiar fare, remains a fine story for all ages. Anybody who has ever been bullied, misunderstood or otherwise treated shabbily can appreciate the emotions expressed so well by Dickens and in this production... Mr. Bartlett again displays his proficiency with page-to-stage transformations.
Great Expectations: 'A fabulous evening in the company of two great storytellers - Dickens and Bartlett. I walked home with the damp air of the marshes in my nostrils and the clanking of the convict's chains ringing in my ears' 5 stars from the Independent 'a sinewy and compelling interpretation'
This production is [Bartlett's] finest take on Dickens - It is storytelling theatre at its best: vivid, fluid and flinty.
Bartlett has definitely done Dickens proud, creating a wonderful adaptation of a classic.
Gets right to the frozen heart of Dickens' classic Christmas of those rare festive offerings for which no adult will need the excuse of a child in tow.
Tiny points and tweaks of the text flash new understanding
I really can't recommend this show too highly. A great novel has been transformed into truly stunning theatre.
