"Readable text and the original illustrations, along with hard covers and inexpensive price, amek this the ideal text for any course on Dickens."--Eugene R. August, University of DaytonFrom the Publisher:
Great Expectations opens unforgettably in a twilit and overgrown churchyard on the eerie Kent marshes.
There the orphan Pip is disturbed to meet an escaped convict, Magwitch, but gives him food, in an encounter that is to haunt both their lives. How Pip receives riches from a mysterious benefactor, snobbishly abandons his friends for London society and 'great expectations', and grows through misfortune and suffering to maturity is the theme of one of Dicken's best-loved novels.
In Great Expectations Dickens blends gripping drama with penetrating satire to give a compelling story rich in comedy and pathos: he has also created two of his finest, most haunting characters in Pip and Miss Havisham.
