Publisher Description:

Considered by many to be Dickens' finest novel, Great Expectations traces the growth of the book's narrator, Philip Pirrip (Pip), from a boy of shallow dreams to a man with depth of character. From its famous dramatic opening on the bleak Kentish marshes, the story abounds with some of Dickens' most memorable characters. Among them are the kindly blacksmith Joe Gargery, the mysterious convict Abel Magwitch, the eccentric Miss Havisham and her beautiful ward Estella, Pip's good-hearted room-mate Herbert Pocket and the pompous Pumblechook. As Pip unravels the truth behind his own ‘great expectations’ in his quest to become a gentleman, the mysteries of the past and the convolutions of fate through a series of thrilling adventures serve to steer him towards maturity and his most important discovery of all - the truth about himself.

With an Introduction and Notes by Dr John Bowen, Keele University.

Illustrations by Marcus Stone.

Category Description for Great Expectations:

Pip first meets Estella when he is seven years old. Although the wealthy and beautiful young girl treats Pip terribly, he is captivated and determined to win her over. This is difficult for the orphaned boy, but the unexpected news that Pip has a secret benefactor allows for him to go to London to get the training of a young gentleman. Suddenly, Pip becomes a man of great expectations whose course in life has changed forever. ~ Enh
