|Summary, etc.:|| One of the most swiftly moving and unified of Charles Dickens's great novels, Oliver Twist is also famous for its re-creation -- through the splendidly realized figures of Fagin, Nancy, the Artful Dodger, and the evil Bill Sikes -- of the vast London underworld of pickpockets, thieves, prostitutes, and abandoned children. Victorian critics took Dickens to task for rendering this world in such a compelling, believable way, but readers over the last 150 years have delivered an alternative judgment by making this story of the orphaned Oliver Twist one of its author's most loved works.
