Three Stages Pips Life
253 wordsDickens seems to have a highly developed sense of theatre, and this is proven countless times in his works.

Dickens brings down the curtain at the end of the first stage with a few very powerful paragraphs. These paragraphs illustrate Pips feeling of loss, loneliness, and even dejection, and describe the partin...

1,379 wordsThe very title of this book indicates the confidence of conscious genius.

I have read it as it appeared in installments, and can testify to the felicity with which expectation was excited and prolonged, and to ...

Sometimes they almost seem like an old married couple because theyve been together so long.
