Is Great Expectations a Romance?

The language Dickens uses in the conversation between Jaggers and Pip heightens the mystery; for example his use of the words ‘profound secret’, ‘present sphere of life’, added to the very formal legal terms used, which all leave the reader feeling intrigued.“…she’s more beautiful than anybody ever was, and I admire her dreadfully, and I want to be a gentleman on her account.” Estella has made Pip feel dissatisfied with his way of life; he has become besotted with her, and wishes to change who he is for her.Pip turns his back on his roots, feeling ashamed of his family and his life: “I thought long after I laid me down, how common Estella would consider Joe, a mere blacksmith: how thick his boots, and how coarse his hands”… “I was ashame...

The great expectations Essay

In France, in 1968, the ORTF offered a TV movie directed by Marcel Cravenne which was broadcast on December 25, 1968 on Channel 1, with Madeleine Renaud (Miss Havisham), Charles Vanel (Magwitch), Stéphane Di Napoli (Pip child), Pascale Christophe (Estella child), Jean-Roger Caussimon (Jaggers), Paul Le Person (Joe Gargery), Jean-Claude Dauphin (Pip adult), Marika Green (Estella adult) and Michel Robin.Henri Suhamy explains that Dickens gave his words all the more impact because he did not make Pip a little wretch: neither idyllic nor sordid, Joe's forge does not resemble not in Gabriel Varden's gothic lair in Barnaby Rudge, the Gargerys' house is nothing like the Hard Times slums: the hearth is stocked, the pantry full, and Mrs. Gargery ...

Characters in Great Expectations Essay

Miss Havisham talks to Pip about herself and gives him a brief outline of her past telling Pip how she has never seen the sun since she was left at the alter by her husband.Extract two begins with Pip the narrator describing what the room Pip is in looks like.So when Dickens refers to Pip as a “small bundle of shivers” it creates an image in the readers mind of Pip curled up all alone in this “overgrown” “wilderness” which I think increases the readers sorrow for Pip.Estella just like Magwitch is sprung onto Pip.Moreover the word “bundle” emphasises how small Pip is which may increase the readers sorrow for Pip even more.

How Does Dickens Make the Reader Empathize With the Character Pip?

At the end of the third paragraph Pip is a “bundle of shivers”, this would make Pip more scared of the convict because he wouldn’t have expected it.This paragraph tells the reader that Pip wants to know his family and tells the reader that we should feel empathy for Pip.The description of the landscape starts with Pip and where he is in the graveyard, near his family’s gravestones and lozenges, and how the area around Pip is “overgrown” with nettles.Dickens tells the reader this by using the word “wilderness.” This shows how alone Pip is in the world and how much he longs for a family.In paragraph four Dickens uses the repetition of the words “just,” and “only.” Dickens does this to show the reader that Pip doesn’t have anything to his l...

Great Expectations Essay

This is evident by the way that Dickens uses conditional tense, Pip says “I should have cried out, if I could” by this we take it to mean that through his fear, Pip is paralysed and can’t take action against this ghostly, skeletal apparition.Miss Haversham demands Pip to play, although Pip can’t think of anything he’d rather do less.Unbeknownst to Pip he is himself showing that he is of lower class to Estella by calling her Miss, Estella is aware that Pip is of lower class and constantly calls him “boy” putting him down.In this part of the passage Dickens uses an extended simile when Pip compares the way Miss Haversham looks to that of a “ghastly waxwork” image and of a “skeleton – which had been dug out of a vault” both of these are ima...

Charles Dickens Uses to Create the Two Important Chapters Memorable

Pip, sir.” Even though Magwitch is horrible to Pip, Pip is always polite to him.Pip’s speech; “Goo-good-night, sir.” would have told the readers that Pip has been grown up in a respectable surrounding which also tells the readers that Pip is a higher class because of his politeness.“Keep still, you little devil, or I’ll cut your throat!” This is an important part of the chapter because it shows the readers that Magwitch has a higher status than Pip, even though Pip is a better character by heart.Pip actually respects Magwitch and doesn’t blame him for anything he’s doing.The readers would compare Magwitch to Pip and would probably like Pip because he’s not at all as horrible as Magwitch is.

”Great Expectations” by Charles Dickens

The words that show us pip feels pity on the convict are “he looked in my young eyes as if he were eluding the hands of the dead people” this shows the convict is looking at pip as if pip is only hope of getting away, pip realises he’s the convicts last hope.The convict feels pity for pip we know this as he says “oh!” to Pip when he was talking about his mother this shows he feels sorry for pip as he knows pips lost his mum and dad.This description reinforced the atmosphere of fear and tension because, pip is a young boy on his own in a black unused churchyard and he has been held by the throat by a man with jail clothes on and chains threatening to cut throat.Dickens lightens the atmosphere in the part of the scene by him saying “what f...

How Does Charles Dickens Make the the First Chapter of Great Expectations Effective?

The scene is purposely shown in graveyard so that it can be used in juxtaposition to the way Magwitch treats pip.This scene creates a strong sense of dramatic irony as we have the perception that Magwitch is a convict and won’t think twice about killing someone but yet he’s frightened when pip mentions his mother.At this scene the readers emotions intertwine and this increases the tension as it causes confusion in the readers mind whether or not Magwitch will kill pip.We know pip has never seen his parents before they died “never saw” so he makes absurd descriptions of them “unreasonably derived”, this creates a sympathy for pip as he knows that its stupid but its the only way he can imagine his parents “square, stout, dark man”.By doing...

Compare, Contrast and Analyse Chapters 1 and 39 of ”Great Expectations”

I resented it, because it seemed to imply that he expected me to respond to it.” The word “resented” is repeated twice within this short section of text, the effect of repeating this powerful word used her in the verb form, creates a sense of hostility when read, this hostility felt by the reader is reflected in Pip’s feelings towards this man who is clearly delighted by the sight of Pip, this is evident as Dickens writes “… the sort of bright recognition that still shone in his face.” Bright has connotations of happiness, blissful and positivity however, Pip does not return this warm reception he is faced with, as Dickens writes “…that still shone in his face.” .Dickens wants the reader to see Pip as vulnerable in order to help the read...

How does Dickens create atmosphere and suspense in the first chapter of Great Expectations?

As soon as Magwitch realises Pip is an orphan he starts to change; he starts to feel sorry for Pip, Mainly because Magwitch was an orphan himself.In the paragraph at the bottom of page three Magwitch threatens pip with ‘a dangerous young man.’ This is primarily to scare Pip into pursuing his demands and also to keep up his ‘hard man’ act.Pip is ‘ a small bundle of shivers growing afraid of it all and beginning to cry.’ This phrase creates pathos for Pip but we also come to see what a dramatic boy Pip was.Magwitch constantly makes threats against Pip ‘keep still ya little devil or I’ll cut ya throat’, ‘ you bring em both to me or I’ll have your heart and liver out.’ It is funny how even though he is being threatened pip still answers Magw...

Dickens thought what meant to be a gentleman Essay

I say this because when Pip becomes a gentleman, Joe was already one to everyone so I think he was setting an example.He tries to show us by telling us a story about a young boy Pip in which he grows up trying to become a gentleman, through Joe who is Pip’s brother in law who is a poor but a decent, hardworking man and also Magwitch the convict, who changes through the story but Pip especially changes.The only closest person around Pip who was the perfect and suited role model of a gentleman was dear Joe Gargery.I think that Pip should of atleast been more emotional when he left because I think that he was too over excited in leaving.Pip gets a little angry at her too.

How Does Dickens his Characters Memorable and Striking?

There is evidence, for example, when Pip asks: “Is it your own, Mr Wemmick?” Therefore, the reader knows that Pip is confident to talk to Wemmick, but also that Pip is quiet and at certain times, weak.We know that the whole situation that Pip has never seen his parents is true, as the text states: “I never saw my father or my mother,” and we also know that Pip disliked his parents, as the text also states: “…and never say any likeness of either of them.” Again, this evidence is making the reader feel sympathy for Pip.Another way that Dickens makes Pip memorable and striking is by the mood that he creates, using the character of Pip.Dickens also makes Miss Havisham’s character striking by conveying the way she speaks, using words such as ...

An Exploration of the Relationship Between Pip and Magwitch in Great Expectations

Dickens repeats words in his description of Pip and the scenery to emphasize the bleakness of the scenery and the vulnerability of Pip.This links to the beginning of the book where Pip is described as ‘that small bundle of shivers, growing afraid of it all and beginning to cry was Pip.’ Whilst feeling very small and insignificant, Pip is attacked by Magwitch, and as you are reading the novel through the eyes of Pip, it affects you as a reader too.I feel Dickens also tried to show the mockery that is the judicial system, in the final scenes, the innocent Magwitch is sentenced to death, for coming back to England to witness what he had done to the character of Pip.The difference between the voices of Magwitch and Pip is large, Magwitch com...

How does Charles Dickens present Victorian Childhoods in “Great Expectations”

When she is violently hurting pip she loves to refer to how, because of her Pip is alive.Miss Havisham expects Pip to be scared of her “You are not afraid of a woman who has never seen the sun since you were born?” she warns Pip, subtly telling him to be afraid of her.She persuades Pip to believe that he should be grateful for what she does to him by constantly complaining of the burden Pip is to her.Joe grabs Pip and “passes him into the chimney, quietly fencing me up there with his great leg” in comparison to Mrs Joe, Joe Gargery seems like the hero, he protects Pip and is described to be very strong “great leg”.It seems to be an awkward position for Pip because he has suddenly stepped into a world he hasn’t experienced at all, where h...

Pip’s emotion Essay

It also emphasises how much the convict has been through and proves that he must be strong to have survived everything Pip describes and also that he must have a purpose in his life and in the story otherwise why put himself through so much.He lists every possible thing that Pip may try to do to escape and explaining how they won’t work and that Pip is unable to escape which will leave Pip feeling completely helpless.However although the adult Pip seems to be thinking he was brave the first phrase sounds quite light as if pip doesn’t want the reader to think he was weak and is making the tone less serious.This also captures the sense of a young boy through the adult pip because although this also sounds like the speech of a child with th...

The Opening of Great Expectations Could be seen as Your Average Opening to a Novel

This aspect of Pip only being an infant is important because in the opening pages, Pip is intimidated by the convict quite a few times, but this is not because Pip is cowardly but because he is just a boy.This sums the chapter up well because Pip spends most of it in fear and in this one line he brings it to an end by indicating that he will be running home without stopping.Also the language in which the convict uses sometimes drifts from Standard English to dialect, for example at one point, he tells Pip, .Examples of this include, the use of the word wittles or ‘vittles’ which back in the nineteenth century was another word for food – this word is used by the convict when he is commanding Pip to help him, he asks him to bring him a fil...

In What Ways Does Dickens Create Effective Images of People and/or Places?

“Oh, said he, coming back.” As shown by the words “coming back” Magwitch now feels sympathetic towards Pip as he also lost a loved one (his daughter, Estella).When Pip was taken into Miss Havisham’s room, Dickens once again uses very descriptive language to create an eerie, mysterious setting.This proven later on in the novel when Pip verbally attacks Miss Havisham and is furious about what she did to Pip concerning this relationship with Estella.The quotation previously mentioned demonstrates that Pip now understands how pitiful and helpless Magwitch was although the younger Pip was frightened of the convict at their first meeting.Saying that Magwitch as “waiting for me” is sympathetic towards Magwich as Charles Dickens makes it seem th...

Opening Chapter In Great Expectations English Literature Essay

Magwitch says this in advance to Pip as a consequence if he doesn’t get him the ‘files and wittles’.This is because Magwitch warns Pip about the consequences of not bringing him the required materials and says ‘you go from my words’.We assume that he is a made up character whom Magwitch talks about to scare Pip in order to assure that he will bring the ‘files and wittles’.This is like speaking a word of warning towards Pip is to get the materials commanded by Magwitch if he doesn’t do so the ‘young man’ will do bad things to Pip.The first few words which are spoken in the story by the characters were ‘terrible voice’ shouting ‘hold your noise!’ The ‘convict’ behaves unpredictably towards Pip, “he seized me by the chin”.

She is like this because when Pip spoke to her, he almost spoke in fear because he didn’t know which way she’d take it.‘Hold your noise’ is a command, and Pip would really been startled by this, just popping up out of nowhere.The first time Pip confronts Magwitch he is a child although later on in the story, he obviously meets Magwitch as an adult, and he has a completely different perspective of him.This is also the first time Pip met Estella, whom he loved for the long time he visited there.‘I’ll cut your throat’ is a threat, and straightaway shows Pip that he isn’t joking around.

Discuss the effectiveness of the opening chapter of ‘Great Expectations’ Essay

For example when Magwich requests that Pip go and fetch him a file and some wittles, however if Pip does not fulfil Magwich’s requests then a young man will cut out his heart and liver, this make the novel more enjoyable for the audience.It is also because of Dickens’s choice of words why his main character is called Pip; because the word Pip means a seed from which things grow.Dickens’s storyline and words also makes us feel sorry for young Pip as in the past he has lost his Mother, Father and five younger Brothers and the fright of being ‘held hostage’ by Magwich.Also the brutal abuse of Pip the orphan is similar to the exploitation of the orphans in the surrounding atmosphere.Miss Havisham is very rich and cultured so she should know ...

Magwitch in Charles Dickens’ “Great Expectations”

Those words, “Also Georgiana wife of the above” are not saying a lot about his mother, and Pip does not know a lot about his mother.Pip.” This is showing that the convict now respects Pip, Pip now going somewhere with life, is grown up and physically stronger.… “Or I’ll have your heart and liver out.” The words “He tilted me again” appear 4 times in that section of text, to really make Pip feel as though he is at the mercy of the convict.This gives the impression that Mrs. Joe did not really want to bring Pip up, and in a sense she has not done so anyway because she has never really been there for Pip, she has brought him up physically but not mentally.This would have come as a shock for Pip as the pathetic fallacy used just previously m...

Pip found this out the hard way; when he was poor he had a bad life and when he received the convict’s money and became a gentleman he was treated and looked after well.Pip is asking the convict about his dark past but hesitates slightly; we can tell this by the way that Pip stutters when questioning the convict.You’ve never me, dear boy” Pip also talks to the convict very comfortingly; “Yes.Pip has grown closer to the convict and visa-versa; the convict is comfortable in telling Pip about his dark past; when Pip says “were you-tried-in London” the convict responded with “Which time?” this suggests that the convict’s past was darker than we first foresaw.Also with Dickens’ idea of the legal system being iniquitous the judge doesn’t take ...

Presentation of Estella

Once again, Estella addresses Pip as, ‘boy’, carrying on that she is above Pip in social class and that she has no respect for him.After Pip hears this off Estella, he thinks to himself, ‘I had never thought about being ashamed of my hands before’, this obviously shows how much of an impact Estella has had upon Pip as she is now making him feel insecure and leaves him questioning himself.You can break his heart.’ This is the impression that Pip received when hearing Miss Havisham answer to Estella, so as we only know the story from a narrative view, we are not sure that this is what was actually said, but what Pip thinks it is.Estella; as someone who considers herself to be high in society, searches for company of people who have achieve...
