In this contribution to the handbook, I pursue two aims. In the first part, I begin by examining the problematic nature of three terms related to my subject and to whose nascency and growing importance I contributed in several previous studies (Wagner 1995, 1996, 2006). In the second part, I will focus on illustrated Victorian English fiction, and more precisely on one of the best-known English novels, Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist. The novel will provide a case study of how text and image function together, albeit not necessarily in complementary ways, in the genre of the novel. In order to avoid generalisations about the subtle, intermedial play at work in Oliver Twist, I will limit my discussion to one particular aspect, the construction of Fagin the Jew in text and image, as both media draw on a great variety of verbal and visual representations.
