Annotation This fiercely comic tale stands in marked&#160;&#160;contrast to its genial predecessor, <i>The Pickwick&#160;&#160;Papers</i>. Set against London's seedy back&#160;&#160;street slums, <i>Oliver Twist</i> is&#160;&#160;the saga of a workhouse orphan captured and thrust&#160;&#160;into a thieves' den, where some of Dickens's most&#160;&#160;depraved villains preside: the incorrigible&#160;&#160;Artful Dodger, the murderous bully Sikes, and the&#160;&#160;terrible Fagin, that treacherous ringleader whose&#160;&#160;grinning knavery threatens to send them all to the&#160;&#160;"ghostly gallows." Yet at the heart of this&#160;&#160;drama is the orphan Oliver, whose unsullied&#160;&#160;goodness leads him at last to salvation. In 1838 the&#160;&#160;publication of <i>Oliver Twist</i> firmly established the&#160;&#160;literary eminence of young Dickens. It was,&#160;&#160;according to Edgar Johnson, "a clarion peal&#160;&#160;announcing to the world that in Charles Dickens the&#160;&#160;rejected and forgotten and misused of the world had a&#160;&#160;champion."
