Oliver Twist was born and raised into a life of poverty and misfortune in a workhouse in an unnamed town Orphaned by his mother's death in childbirth and his father's mysterious absence, Oliver is meagrely provided for under the terms of the Poor Law and spends the first nine years of his life living at a baby farm in the 'care' of a woman named Mrs. Mann. Oliver is brought up with little food and few comforts. Around the time of Oliver's ninth birthday, Mr. Bumble, the parish beadle, removes Oliver from the baby farm and puts him to work picking and weaving oakum at the main workhouse. Oliver, who toils with very little food, remains in the workhouse within six months, and later decides to run away to London to seek for a better life. L'histoire concerne un orphelin, Oliver Twist, soumis à des privations et des vexations dans l'hospice paroissial (workhouse) où il est né.Choisi par tirage au sort par ses camarades affamés, il ose demander une portion supplémentaire de gruau et il est alors placé chez un croque-mort, d'où il s'échappe pour prendre la route de Londres ; dès son arrivée, il rencontre l'un des personnages les plus célèbres de Dickens, The Artful Dodger — nom traduit par Rusé matois pour Alfred Gérardin en 1893 et Le Renard dans la collection PléiadeN 1 — chef d'une bande de jeunes pickpockets. Naïvement confiant en son nouveau compagnon, il se laisse entraîner dans l'antre de son maître, le criminel Fagin.
