Well, Fagin was a thief as well as a fence, in the book, the film and the stage musical. Training kids to carry out the legwork and the fingerwork involved in stealing is a variety of theft.

But he doesn't need to have convinced himself that he is honest in order to be religiously observant. Just that he is doing what he has been forced to do by circumstances, maybe that what he has done is not that bad, and that he is an imperfect human being who can pray to be forgiven before it's too late.

Thanks for that, McGrath of Harlow. Actually, a lot of fences (a significant percentage were Jewish, but not all ) were also kidsmen and trained children to steal for them because it was an easy and convenient way of getting the stolen goods. Also dealing in secondhand goods provided a good front- you could just not ask questions and convince yourself that what you're doing isn't that bad.

MorwenEdelwen1,

I thought I had answered your question, albeit in parts.

It would be possible to portray the guy as a self-deluded ethnic stereotype who imagines that Moses gave only nine commandments.

History and literature are full of characters who have deluded themselves into believing that they ARE what everyone else can see they are NOT.

It would not be possible to portray him as TRULY an observant (i.e., religious) Jew. It would not be possible because Judaism is truly incompatible with life as an unrepentant thief.

Although it would be possible to portray him as a self-deluded stereotype, it would very difficult to do so without reinforcing the stereotype.

Certain American television situation comedies of the 1960's and '70's suggest a possible way out of your dilemma, while also showing how difficult a task you have. (I don't know if these shows are known to you in Australia. I have heard that American television has infested the world, so perhaps they are.)

"Sanford and Son", portrayed Sanford, an African-American, in ethnically stereotypical ways. However, nearly all the characters were of the same ethnicity, which at least mitigated the stereotyping. "The Beverly Hillbillies" portrayed a family as Appalachian/Ozark stereotypes, but subverted the stereotypes so that, for example, the "dumb Hillbilly" ended up out-smarting the "sophisticated" Big City banker every time. Again, this mitigated the damage. The shows were popular even among the people who were being stereotyped.

Nevertheless,in my opinion, the shows did reinforce stereotypes; they just made the stereotypes less offensive.

I imagine it would be especially difficult to do what you are trying to do since, Fagin is (as far as I know) the only Jew among a crowd of Gentiles, and since he is a villian.

Kent


P.S. to MtheGM,

Pardon me, Sir! I plead "guilty" to parochialism. I had clean forgotten that "Oliver!" began life on the West End.

I did remember that "Sanford and Son" began life in the mother country as "Steptoe and Son", but whether "Steptoe and Son" involved sterotypes, I do not know.

Never mind the quality, feel the width.

A large percentage of the population of the East End was Jewish in Dickens' time and still is to this day. When I was at school in Forest Gate the only time that Jews were noticed was when they didn't have to take Religious Instruction lessons. Then they were envied and not criticized.

Never mind the quality, feel the width. Was a TV show about an Irishman and a Jew.

As for the other comment, I think I was trying to say was that Jews were part of life in The East End. Surely to leave them out of a story set in London would definitely be prejudiced.

I gather the story MtheGM had about the origin of the name Fagin isn't quite accurate - "The story goes that Dickens was bullied by a big Irish lad called Fagan in his days in the blacking factory, so called his first real villain by a similar, but not identical, name as a revenge on him."

It's a bit more complicated - Bob Fagin (spelt that way) was Dickens mentor when he was in the blacking factory, teaching him how to put the labels on at record speed, so that impressed visitors used to line up to watch them. He seems to have been a friend of sorts, trying to help Dickens to find life a bit easier, stuck in the factory which he hated.

In an essay John Bayley (essay contained in this book suggests that "No wonder Fagin the criminal is such an ambivalent figure when the real Fagin's kindness had, so to speak, threatened to immure Dickens to the hopeless routine of the wage-slave. So passionate was the young Dickens's desire for the station in life to which he felt entitled, and so terrifying his sense that it was being denied him, that he must have hated the real Fagin for the virtue which he could not bear to accept or recognise in that nightmare world, because it might help to subdue him into it. The real Fagin's kindness becomes the criminal Fagin's villainy."

Whether Bob Fagin was Irish is unclear and unstated. Perhaps he was Jewish, for that matter - it's not an obvious name to give a Jewish character if you hadn't known a Jew with the name.

Thing one: write the story.

I think you'll find as the story develops, you'll be forced into research about aspects of what you're writing. That's normal. (Don't want a character brandishing a stainless steel dagger in the late 1800s because stainless steel wasn't invented until 1913.) I think Michael mentioned earlier that the devil's in the details. If so, he's right.

Another point, on the issue of Fagin/ Ikey Solomon, is that Ikey Solomon, although he wasn't the only real-life inspiration, was associated with the Fagin character almost as soon as "Oliver Twist" came out in serial form, so people thought he was "the" real-life Fagin.

Many people seem to have an appetite for one-to-one identifications like that. It is illustrated in many Mudcat posts where there's an assumption that an episode in a song for example, has a single direct reference- "that's what it's about".

That is just restating the question, it doesn't answer it. It's just how many people react to stories and suchlike. Ambiguity is seen as something to be correcte4de rather than appreciated.

(I wasn't criticising your orig9onal post MtheGM, just using it as a useful way to identify what I was referring to, and expanding on the information we'd got in the light of what I'd just read.

Refresh.

So, for a Jewish fence character, it (as a 19th century nickname for Isaac) makes a lot of sense as a name. and the "Prince of Fences" (Ikey Solomon) could (or maybe not) have inspired the slang use of the name.

Terms and dictionaries and thirty years.

I once wrote to a reputable dictionary company to inform the editors of a word-use I'd never seen or heard before that wasn't in their dictionary.

I was speaking with an old trapper in northern Alberta asking after his success the previous day. I don't recall exactly, but our conversation went something like

Me: Good day yesterday?
He: Uh. (Meaning 'not great'.)
Me: How many lynx you take?
He: [Held up his forefinger to designate 'one'.]
Me: Uh. (Meaning 'oh, that's too bad'.)
He: Uh. (Meaning 'you got that right'.)

I didn't pursue it at the time because he'd chosen trapping as his way of life and he didn't need someone having long talks with him, and I'd already pushed that limit.

The dictionary people informed me that words are not entered in their dictionary until after they have appeared in print. (I don't know if that applies in the case you mention.)

I should point out that I was camped near his trap line (about a half mile), and during the week I stayed he came over about six times to have coffee and a few meals with me. What I just related was our longest conversation. That was back in 1983/4 or so. The word-use still isn't mentioned in any dictionary I've ever seen.

Another theory I've discovered for how Ikey S. came to be identified with Fagin is that in the early 1800s there was a play called "Van Diemen's Land" with a character called Barney Fence, stereotyped Jew, and the fact is that after Ikey's trial, the play was retitled after the Barney character, who was renamed "Ikey Solomon".
