Too far in sin to turn back

-A A +A
By Greg Dumas

In the story of Oliver Twist, a woman named Nancy, the girlfriend of the brutal Bill Sikes; was part of an inner group of petty thieves, clustered around the conniving Fagin, leader of that band of thieves. Nancy was a prostitute, who tried to protect Oliver from the life of crime planned for him by Fagin. However, here life was a tragedy – a fictional representation of the terrible, deadly impotence that can seize the soul and destroy all hope.

To help Oliver, Nancy realized that she must betray Fagin and Sikes, which would surely place her in extreme jeopardy. Nevertheless, she arranged for a secret meeting with two of Oliver’s benefactors. When they heard her story, they urged her to break free of the alley and gutter and not to return to Sikes. Even more, they offered to financially enable her to start a new life anywhere she would like to live. But to their gracious offers she replied, “You can do nothing to help me. I am past all hope; indeed…I am chained to my old life. I loathe and hate it now, but I cannot leave it. I must have gone too far to turn back.”
