Using Dickens entertaining and witty words, our poster recreates the poignant and saddening scene in which Oliver makes his legendary request: “Please sir, I want some more.” Frail and thin, with patched clothing that barely protects his fragile frame, Oliver holds the bowl out in his slight, bird-like, hands. In this work of art, the well-fed and overindulged Master looks down at him in a mixture of shock and scorn; Oliver has just done something no other little orphan had dared to do before. Through use of the creative words from Oliver Twist, this poster gives new life to this well-known scene which is a vital part of Oliver’s story.
Oliver Twist is one of Dickens’ most renowned works and continues to delight and astound readers today. Our illustration brings alive the inner workings of England’s workhouses, and presents you with a constant reminder of the plight of the diminutive Oliver with his untainted soul.
