Follow-up on Fagin

18 Dec

On the heels of Jeannette’s post about Fagin, I have some questions. 

1.  In chapter XX, why does Fagin give Oliver the terrible crime book to read?  
     Is this part of Fagin’s behavior modification program for new gang members?
     Is this meant to be Oliver’s punishment for his stay at Brownlow’s?

2.  If Fagin gave Oliver a book, that means Oliver can read.
    Oliver can read?!
    When did a workhouse orphan learn to read?
