CASE STUDY ANALYSIS

Fagan was a character in the Charles Dickens tale, Oliver Twist. He took street children into his quarters, fed them, gave them a place to stay, and taught them survival skills for 19th century England—picking pockets. Though some may have regarded Fagan as a mentor, he did not deserve this designation. By definition, a mentor provides beneficial or life-altering effects. In reality, many of the children taken in by Fagan would wind up going to prison.
