SKU: Prod-1579-1577-1468231236.55

One cold Christmas Eve towards nightfall, young orphan Pip, brought up by a bullying older sister and her gentle husband, visits the grave of his dead family in the churchyard. He is “growing afraid of it all and beginning to cry” when the desolation is abruptly broken by the terrifying Magwitch, a convict escaped from the Hulks. Under threat of being eaten alive and having his liver cut out, Pip is terrified into stealing food, drink and a file from home. The next day he witnesses the prisoner’s recapture and, although his own crime is never discovered, his guilt is complete….


Full of tingling twists, vivid images, violence and sentimentality, this is one of Dickens’ most popular novels. Spellbinding in its intensity, vivid portrayal of childhood fears and anxieties, rich in humour and sorrow alike, Great Expectations echoes Dickens’ own his childhood memories as it explores a greater theme of knowing oneself.One cold Christmas Eve towards nightfall, young orphan Pip, brought up by a bullying older sister and her gentle husband, visits the grave of his dead family in the churchyard.

Product Description

    Details

    About the Author: Charles Dickens was born on February 7, 1812, in Landport, Portsea, England. He died in Kent on June 9, 1870. The second of eight children of a family continually plagued by debt, the young Dickens came to know not only hunger and privation,but also the horror of the infamous debtors’ prison and the evils of child labor. A turn of fortune in the shape of a legacy brought release from the nightmare of prison and “slave” factories and afforded Dickens the opportunity of two years’ formal schooling at Wellington House Academy. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his Sketches by Boz (1836) and The Pickwick Papers (1837) brought him the amazing and instant success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. In later years, the pressure of serial writing, editorial duties, lectures, and social commitments led to his separation from Catherine Hogarth after twenty-three years of marriage. It also hastened his death at the age of fifty-eight, when he was characteristically engaged in a multitude of work.
