    With the publication of this fiercely comic second novel, Charles Dickens’s eminent literary reputation was firmly established. Oliver Twist is the story of a workhouse orphan captured and thrust into a den of thieves, where some of Dickens’s most infernal villains preside: the Artful Dodger, Bill Sikes, and Fagin. Yet the unsullied goodness of the orphan Oliver presents allegorically Dickens’s belief in “the principle of Good surviving in every adverse circumstance and triumphing at last.”
