Summary
'His novels will endure as long as the language itself' Peter Ackroyd Dickens's haunting late novel depicts the education and development of a young man, Pip, as his life is changed by a series of events - a terrifying encounter with an escaped convict in a graveyard on the wild Kent marshes; a summons to meet the bitter, decaying Miss Havisham and her beautiful, cold-hearted ward Estella; the sudden generosity of a mysterious benefactor - and he discovers the true nature of his 'great expectations'. This definitive edition includes appendices on Dickens's original ending, giving an illuminating glimpse into a great novelist at work. With an Introduction by DAVID TROTTER Edited and with notes by CHARLOTTE MITCHELL
Summary
Pip, a blacksmith's young nephew, falls deeply in love with the haughty and mysterious Estella, who does not reciprocate his feelings, but their lives remain intertwined through the rise and fall of his fortunes
