  • 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 ...

  • Iago Is The Archatypical Villain - 765 words
    Iago is the archatypical villain; this point stands true only when compared to more modern literature. In essence, Iagos persona and the evil that drives him is not a new concept to literature. However, Iagos behavior and plotting can be considered a literary archetype when applied to more contemporary villains. Using the word contemporary loosely, villains from Charles Dickens Oliver Twist and Great Expectations, George Orwells Animal Farm, and from the movie Ghost will be compared to behavioral standards set by the honest Iago. Charles Dickens Oliver Twist is a tale of the social injustices in England, during the early 1800s. Dickens' second novel tells the story of the orphan Oliver set a ...

  • How Successful Is Dickens In His Presentation Of Female Characters? - 930 words

  • Great Expectations - 1,285 words
    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 ...

  • Compare The Poems Havisham And The Laboratory. - 616 words
    In the poem Havisham, Carol Ann Duffy presents the subject of this poem as an old, embittered woman with ropes on the back of her hands, while Browning presents the subject of his poem as a strong and determined but very jealous and embittered young woman. The poem is written in the first person in the form of a dramatic monologue, The Laboratory by Robert Browning is also written in this form. Carol Ann Duffy writes about the feelings of rejection, isolation and desolation that a woman who has been jilted at the alter by her husband might feel. I think that feelings such as this in both of the poems have been based on either literature or historical events, for example Havisham was most lik ...

  • 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 - 1,638 words
    ... 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 ...

  • Wuthering Heights - Nature Vs. Nurture - 1,329 words
    Wuthering Heights is a novel that indulges one of the most crucial themes; the theme of nature verses nature. The two households of the novel: Wuthering Heights and Thruscross Grange represents both the contrast between wilderness and civility which dominates the lives of its inhabitants. Being able to suppress your nature nurturing an opposed one would result into a deep conflict within the characters themselves. The best that would exemplifies such conflicts between the code of nature and nurture is Catherine Eranshow. "Her spirit always at high-water mark, her tongue always singing, laughing and plaguing everybody who would not do the same. A wild, wicked slip" A person with such characte ...

    When Pip was a child, he was a contented young boy. He wanted to grow up to be apprenticed to Joe and had believed the forge as the glowing road to manhood. He was a very sensitive child and afraid of doing something wrong this was shown when his guilty conscience along with his imagination haunted him with images of him being caught after he stole food for the convict.

The way his conscience had to wrestle with the idea that he had done a good deed showed insecurity as well as being afraid of doing wrong. He was an insecure child and would do anything but lose ...

When the convict is found, Pip tries to send him the message that he did not turn against him: "I had been waiting for him to see me, that I might try to assure him of my innocence." (p.38).
