Character Role Analysis

Oliver Twist

Oliver’s name is in the title of the book, so you can bet he’s a pretty central character. Although he’s not present in every scene, all of the characters know who he is and are established as having some kind of relationship to Oliver. Yep, sounds like the protagonist to us.
