Oliver Twist is told from a third-person point of view with an omniscient, or all-knowing, narrator. This choice allows Dickens to accomplish several authorial goals: revealing interior thought processes and various emotions, adding commentary on characters, and editorializing on the events of the story and early 19th-century English society.
Oliver Twist is written in the past tense.
