  • Great Expectations - 440 words
    In the novel Great Expectations, by Charles Dickens, many characters have a great influence on Pip's life. The characters that affect him most are Magwitch, Pip's benefactor, Estella, whom Pip adores, and Joe, Pip's best friend throughout the novel. Some of the people in Pips life, unfortunately, drew him away from the fact that social status does not matter as long as you have a good heart inside. Magwitch is the character that affects Pip most throughout the story. He is the nightmare-creator that scared Pip as a young boy one Christmas, and from that point on Pips life was turned upside down. A few years after the incident on the marshes the convict shows that he still remembers Pip by se ...

  • Psychoanalytic And Gender Perspectives In Great Expectations - 1,559 words
    Criticisms of Great Expectations: Psychoanalytic and Gender Perspectives Psychoanalytic and gender literary criticisms are important as individual analyses and are similar in some respects, namely sexual and gender issues, which make them ideal choices for analyzing Great Expectations. Reading the novel from a psychoanalytical perspective invites an interpretation based on symbols, repression, dreams, and the nature of the conscious vs. the unconscious mind. The central thesis of psychoanalytical criticism is based on the theories of Sigmund Freud, who recognized the link between literary works and human psychology. Just as Freuds theories on human psychology have changed the way in which th ...

  • Estella In Great Expectations - 638 words
    One of Dickens' most prominent figures in Great Expectations is the character of Estella. She plays a major role in the life of the main character, Pip. He is completely consumed with love and desire for her even though she has been influenced not to expose any feelings towards men (Dyson 235). Estella's cold-hearted, proud, and blunt mannerisms are in contrast to the symbolism of her name that is likened to a star in the galaxy. Similar to that symbolism, however, she shines but is unattainable (Partlow 201). Throughout Estella's life, she eventually learns how to deal with feelings in relationships (Dyson 239). Estella was the adopted daughter of Miss Havisham. She was raised in a controll ...

  • Great Expectations - 1,184 words
    The novel, Great Expectations, by Charles Dickens is considered by many to be one of the greatest works of Victorian fiction. It is through the use of characterization and imagery that Dickens is able to make his ideas most prominent in the minds of readers. Through his expert use of these authorial techniques, Dickens successfully criticizes the prison system, the morals of society, and the social injustice of his time. In the novel, Dickens takes an innocent young orphan boy through childhood and on through adulthood showing the lasting effects of the transition. The novel begins in a marshy cemetery with Pip, a lonely orphan boy who lives with his sister and her husband Joe Gargery. While ...

    Throughout this novel of Great Expectations characters are divided into upper class and lower class people. Unlike most young men in the 19th century, Pip was not either of these, but both. Pip grew up with his sister Mrs Joe Gargery and her husband, Mr Joe who had grown up with no education, but taught himself to become a blacksmith. Joe wanted to pass on his talent to pip and treated him with great respect and almost as his own son. Pip was very close to him, and because Joe grew up running away with his mother from his father, he had had no reading or writing education. Joe decided and made sure that this would never happen to Pip and he would be happy how he lived his life. Pip was taugh ...

  • Great Expectations - A Look At Themes, Characters And Style - 1,687 words
    General Info: A story of moral redemption. The hero is an orphan raised in humble surroundings, in the early decades of the nineteenth century, comes into a fortune, and promptly disavows family and friends. When the fortune first loses its lustre, then evaporates completely, he confronts his own ingratitude, and learns to love the man who both created and destroyed him. The story is told by the hero himself, and the challenge Dickens faced in devising this first-person narrative was two-fold. He had to ensure that Pips confession of his faults ring true, so that we do not suppose him to be admitting them merely in order to win our sympathy. And he had to validate Pips redemption by showing ...

  • Great Expectations: The World Of Laws, Crime And Punishment - 1,608 words
    ter> The World of Laws, Crime and Punishment in Great Expectations Great Expectations criticises the Victorian judicial and penal system. Through the novel, Charles Dickens displays his point of view of criminality and punishment.

In treating the theme of the Victorian system of punishment, Dickens shows his position against prisons, transportation and death penalty. The main character, a little child who has expectations of becoming a gentleman to be of the same social position of the girls he loves, passes from having no interest on criminality and its pe ...

    ... Pip is conducted inside the prison and imagines that convicts are going to be executed in the same way as animals are in Smithfield. Mr. Jaggers, the sinister lawyer, has a strong character in the exercise of power. He provokes horror on Pip as Pip notices his unpleasant tone when arguing with his clerk, Mr. Wemmick, and the way he threats his clients. The description of his office suggests that a large part of his work as a solicitor consists of manipulating evidence and he is always seen followed by a troop of supplicants whom he brushes off disdainfully, much as someone might try to get rid of a tiresome puppy (). He bullies them and gleefully profits from their problems (Barnes). The ...

  • Comparing Great Expectations And Of Mice And Men - 1,123 words
    The two novels that I have studied, Great Expectations and Of Mice and Men, are very different. Of Mice and Men is set in 1930s America during the Great Depression. There was a high unemployment rate, which meant that people had to travel along vast amounts of land for a single job. It was a struggle for financial freedom, which is a theme to the novel. Great Expectations is set in England in 1891. During this time, death was a common occurrence and happened often. The main character Pip begins to tell us about death right from the start of the novel and it is a constant theme throughout it. The landscape in Of Mice and Men starts on a very grand scale first describing golden foothill slopes ...

    ... away. In the two novels, very different narrative techniques are used. In Of Mice and Men, the story is written in third person view, like an observer. This technique does not draw you into the story very quickly. It is clear from the writing that Steinbeck is calling on previous experiences. He is basically writing about what he has witnessed and experienced as he went through the Great Depression. Steinbecks simple writing style shows what it was like during the Great Depression. Steinbeck uses no flashbacks or jumps into the future in this story. This helps to maintain the sense of tension and climax that he has written so evidently through the novel. The third person view of the stor ...
