Abstract:

Was conceived as a criticism of the Poor Law of 1824. The novel painted a new and realistic picture of the London underworld: Dickens refused to cloak the wretchedness of criminals in 'crimson coats and ruffles ... dash and freedom', insisting that 'to paint them as they really were, for ever skulking uneasily through the dirtiest paths of life, with the great black ghastly gallows closing up their prospect ... would be a service to society'.
