Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist is saturated with the evil of men (and women) who seek to destroy the purest of things—the innocence of a child.

While each of these men will succumb to some level of depravity, as will the other characters, young Oliver Twist does not.

The infestation, which eventually consumes all those around him, is something that Oliver Twist was able to avoid due to his purity of self.
