Is this novel a 'fable' or 'chronicle'?

What does the central character want? What is standing in his or her way? And what strategy does he or she pursue in order to overcome this block?

Who is telling this story?

Where is this story set?

What style does the writer employ?

Images and metaphores?

Beginnings and endings?

Is this novel a 'fable' or 'chronicle'?
This story is a chronicle. It tells us of a real world situation in chronlogical order.

What does the central character want? What is standing in his or her way? And what strategy does he or she pursue in order to overcome this block?
The central character just wants security and goodness. He tries so hard to pleases the authority figures in his life, hoping in return for some kindness. Standing in his way is not only the assumptions of the times of the poor, the evil doings of some of the awful characters i.e. Bumble, but also the hurdles placed by Monks and Fagin. Oliver is always good. His goodness and veracity allows him to be liked by Brownlow, Rose and Nancy, who help him find happiness.

Who is telling this story?
Omnicient telling by the narrator

Where is this story set?
England, mostly London
Although the country represents peace and happiness

What style does the writer employ?
The writer is extremely descriptive in his characters and locations, he utilizes all the senses to bring the reader into the world of his characters

Don't have much thoughts on this area. Most of my thoughts are in the final thoughts of the book.

Two thumbs up.
