  2. Social justice at the center Critique of social evil Poor houses Industrial horror Power politics Underworld Greedy management Prominent three the abuses of the new Poor Law system the evils of the criminal world in London the victimization of children
  3. Charles Dickens (Oliver Twist) ‘Although I am not disposed to maintain that the being born in a workhouse, is in itself the most fortunate and enviable circumstance that can possibly befall a human being, I do mean to say that in this particular instance, it was the best thing for Oliver Twist that could by possibility have occurred.’
  4. Justice at the end Murder of Nancy Fagin and his gang Brownlow adopted Oliver Dickens was keen observer and satirist. If he presents facts through fiction how he shows social evils & limitations of social justice? Want to bring ‘upbringing by showing decrement’
  5. Can justice be read as a blind representation? ‘Would be to attempt something that is needed, and which would be a service to society.’ -Charles Dickens Is Dickens bring social justice at the end of the novel or wants to signify something beyond ?
  6. End of Fagin & member of his gang • Death of Sikes • All members of Fagin’s were caught including Fagin caught into prison Mob Mentality Institutional Cruelty Powerlessness
  7. Oliver’s end with Mr. Brownlow Legally accepted, here the word ‘accepted’ also is not right way of saying because it doesn’t question why poor are rejected but it is in favor of elite class. It is good that Brownlow adopted Oliver but how & why he adopted means the process is highly problematic. Is Oliver really at the center in the novel that bears his name?
  8. Dickens does not give social justice as it is nearly impossible but he encodes limits of social justice but satires upon • Good attitudes can overcome evil intentions, even in the time of darkness but question is that still someone will be seen if one has a wealth of material or not! • From this step, the social class gap happens in the society.
  9. What about other characters & orphans of the novel? Is it possible that there is certainly one Brownlow for each Oliver? Are poor only responsible for their poverty? Why underworld exists is any reason like they don’t like upper world? Industrialists blame workers they are fool, not intelligent and scrimshanked but what about industrialist horror which has taken away their bread? Limit of social justice
