"Oliver Twist" was Dickens' second novel, and was first published in monthly instalments
between February 1837 and April 1839 in "Bentley's Miscellany". It was a great contrast to his
first novel, "The Pickwick Papers", and Dickens used it to target the 1834 Poor Law
Amendment Act which restructured the Work House system as a means of providing
assistance for the poor. The novel introduced many famous fictional characters including
Oliver himself, Bill Sikes, Nancy and Fagin. For more information about "Oliver Twist", follow

Old Postcard, The Artful Dodger, Oliver Twist
"If you don't take pocket-handkechers and
watches, some other cove will, so that the
coves that lose 'em will be all the worse, and
you'll be all the worse too, and nobody half a
ha'porth the better except the chap wot gets
them."  The Artful Dodger.

"Please, sir, I want some more."
The master...gazed in stupified astonishment
on the young rebel.

"Well then, keep quiet", rejoined Sikes, with
a growl that he was accustomed to use when
addressing his dog, "or I'll quiet you for a
good long time to come."
