Great Expectations





Considered by many to be Dicken's finest novel, Great Expectations traces the growth of Philip Pirrip - Pic - from a boy of shallow dreams to a man of depth and character. He falls in love with Estella, who has been taught to despise men by her eccentric guardian Miss Havisham, who was jilted on her wedding day in her youth. Informed that an unknown benefactor has provided money for his education, Pip forsakes his humbler friends and goes to London to become "a gentleman".
His benefactor turns out to be Abel Magwitch, a transported convict whom Pip has assisted years ealier, and who, in turn, is revealed as Estella's father. With this knowlegde, Pip's dreams fade, and having narrowly escaped imprisonment for debt, he returns to his roots and sets himself to honest work. Meanwhile, Estella marries Pip's enemy Bentley Drummle, by whom she is cruelly ill-treated, but she and Pip are eventually reunited after Drummle's death.
