Several explanations have been offered for Jack Sheppard’s success. Perhaps it offered its readers a safe (and historically distanced) opportunity to identify with a social outsider in the era of Chartism. Alternatively it might be seen as a post-reform tale of an unreformed legal and penal system, which allowed readers to identify with a boys’ own adventurer seeking to outwit a corrupt and oppressive ancien r´egime. Whatever the reasons for its popularity, this novel certainly re-ignited the Newgate controversy.
