The setting of i Oliver Twist i is in startling contrast to the happy world of Mr Pickwick Its picture of crime and brutality surprised readers who thought of Dickens only as a comic writer But the author actually had been born into this very world of which he wrote a world of debtors prisons almshouses slums and poverty .

Oliver was born and reared in a workhouse and apprenticed to a brutal master He ran away to London Starving he was taken from the streets by Fagin a master criminal who corrupted homeless boys by teaching them the tricks of a professional thief .
