Dicken’s third novel, published in 1839, is a brilliant and vivid melodrama of honest youth triumphing over vice and injustice. Bursting with energy and populated by a whole world of inimitable and memorable characters – including especially the theatrical troupe with whom Nicholas performs – the book is both a griping story and a series of magnificent scenes. It is also indignant protest against cruelty and oppression, most memorably encapsulated in Dickens’s powerful portrayal of Mr Squeers and his wicked boarding school – a passage which was to be instrumental in helping to reform the Victorian education system.

The novel has been adapted for television stage and screen.
