3 Great Expectations: Introduction Take notes on the introduction and background to Great Expectations. There is a quiz following the tutorial. The blacksmith, his brother-in-law Joe, is much nicer than Pip’s own sister. Joe Gargery is kind and generous. We learn from the beginning pages that Pip’s parents are dead and Mrs. Joe, his sister, is forced to provide for him. Mrs. Joe makes it very clear that Pip is a burden. Pip is the narrator of Great Expectations. As you read, you have the advantage of seeing this classic tale through the eyes of the main character. Pip mispronounces his name as a child and the nickname of “Pip” stays with him. As a young boy, Pip is content with his future as a blacksmith’s apprentice.

4 Great Expectations: Introduction Charles Dicken’s world in Great Expectations is very dark. So, what better place to start the novel than in a graveyard? One day Pip wanders across the marshes to visit his parents’ graves. Throughout the novel, the marshes represent Pip’s lowly background. While in the graveyard, he finds a runaway convict who demands that Pip help him escape from his chains. Although the convict is later caught, Pip feels horribly guilty for helping him. He is sure Joe will be disappointed if he finds out what Pip has done. However, this frightening episode fades from Pip’s memory when he encounters even more remarkable people. He is invited to rich Miss Havisham’s house to be a playmate for Estella, the proud girl in her care.

5 Great Expectations: Introduction Years ago, Miss Havisham’s fiancé stood her up at the altar. Ever since, she has remained in her wedding dress, let no sunlight into her house, and let the clocks stop. Everything is left just as it was the day of her heartbreak. Pip’s family and friends all hope that Miss Havisham will “do something” for him—give him money. However, for Pip, the appeal of Miss Havisham’s house isn’t just the thought of money or the elegant lifestyle: It’s Estella.

6 Great Expectations: Introduction And then, the unexpected happens! An anonymous benefactor sends money to pay for Pip’s education in London! Is Miss Havisham giving Pip the money? Does she hope to make Pip into a gentleman for his own sake? Or is it for the sake of someone else?

7 Pip Joe Gargery Mrs. Joe Orlick Miss Havisham EstellaJaggers Wemmick Characters of Great Expectations Herbert Pocket Magwitch Write down the name of each main character of Great Expectations. As you read the novel, you will take notes about character traits and defining moments for each one. These notes will help you during class discussion.

8 Pip Philip Pirrup, known as Pip, is an orphan living with his kind brother-in-law, Joe Gargery, and his cruel older sister, Mrs. Joe. Joe is a blacksmith, and 11-year-old Pip's dream is to follow in Joe's footsteps and learn his trade. Joe Gargery The blacksmith Joe Gargery is husband to the abusive Mrs. Joe and a father figure to young Pip. He extends loyalty and generosity to deserving and undeserving alike. Mrs. Joe Pip's hot-tempered older sister bitterly resents the burden of caring for her orphaned brother. But when Pip is summoned to Satis House, Mrs. Joe focuses her petty ambitions on the boy who, she imagines, will "raise up" them all.

9 Miss Havisham Miss Havisham was jilted on her wedding day by a con man. Since then, the disturbed wealthy spinster has reveled in the decaying grandeur of Satis House, haunting the ruins of her wedding celebration in a rotting wedding gown. She adopted her daughter Estella with a single goal in mind: to avenge her heartbreak. Estella With Miss Havisham, the young Estella appears to have a life of wealth and culture — an aspiration and attraction for Pip

10 Orlick Joe's assistant at the forge is a cruel and churlish young man who feels threatened by Pip and never misses an opportunity to bully him. Magwitch Escaped from a prison ship, Magwitch meets Pip in the marshes, demands a file to remove his shackles, and receives a gesture of kindness he won't soon forget. Herbert Pocket Herbert, a relation of Miss Havisham, was cut off from his wealthy family because of his intention to marry Clara Barley. Hired to be Pip's roommate and companion, he quickly becomes his loyal friend.

11 Jaggers The powerful and daunting London lawyer Jaggers was hired by Pip's mysterious benefactor to oversee Pip's transformation into a gentleman. Feared even at Newgate prison, Jaggers is a criminal lawyer to the worst-of- the-worst, whose moral taint he obsessively tries to wash from his hands. Wemmick Wemmick is Jaggers's clerk. A cynical realist obsessed with "portable property," he keeps a warm and nurturing private life completely separate from his professional one, inaccessible to anyone who might taint it.

12 Great Expectations: Background Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was deeply concerned about the struggles of the poor and mistreated people. During this period, people who simply could not pay their bills often went to debtors’ prison. Children of those in debtors’ prison often had to support themselves. A child might work up to sixteen hours a day In Dickens’s time, London was a rich city, but poor people lived in terrible squalor. Labor in a factory or work pulling a cart earned only pennies a day.

13 Great Expectations: Background Shortly before his own father was sent to debtors’ prison, twelve-year-old Charles was sent to work at a shoe polish factory. Dickens’s unfinished autobiography describes the suffering he endured as a child laborer. He worked long hours in a cramped room infested with rats. In Dickens’ time, British convicts were often punished in a way that might seem “cruel and unusual” by today’s standards. The unique history of Australia is tied to a thread in Great Expectations. Convicts thought to pose some threat to society might be shipped off to a distant British territory—what is now Australia. Once sent to Australia, a convict was frequently forbidden to ever return to England.

14 Great Expectations: Discussion Starters Discuss (1) Orphaned and then cared for by a harsh older sister, Pip stumbles upon great opportunity. Is it best to jump at whatever opportunity comes along? Or should a person consider staying in familiar territory? What problems might come from dreaming of a better future? What rewards? Discuss (2) Loyalty and gratitude are themes running through Great Expectations. What are the qualities of a loyal friend? Should a friend’s loyalty have limits? Should a successful person show gratitude to those who have helped along the way?
