Great Expectations

Great Expectations - Charles Dickens

Great Expectations

Perhaps Dickens's best-loved work, "Great Expectations" is a powerful and moving novel suffused with the author's memories of the past and its grip on the present. This edition includes a new Afterword. Revised reissue.
From the agony of Charles Dickens' disenchantment with the Victorian middle class comes a novel of spellbinding mystery and a profound examination of moral values.

An orphan living with his older sister and her kindly husband, Pip is hired by wealthy and embittered Miss Havisham as a companion for her and her beautiful adopted daughter, Estella. His years in service to the Havishams fill his heart with the desire to rise above his station in life. Pip's wish is fulfilled when a mysterious benefactor provides him with "great expectations"--the means to be tutored as a gentleman.

Thrust into London's high-society circles, Pip grows accustomed to a life of leisure, only to find himself lacking as a suitor competing for Estella's favor. After callously discarding everything he once valued for his own selfish pursuits, Pip learns the identity of his patron--a revelation that shatters his very soul.

With an Introduction by Stanley Weintraub
and an Afterword by Annabel Davis-Goff
