'In what may be Dickens's best novel, humble, orphaned Pip is apprenticed to the dirty work of the forge but dares to dream of becoming a gentleman — and one day, under sudden and enigmatic circumstances, he finds himself in possession of "great expectations." In this gripping tale of crime and guilt, revenge and reward, the compelling characters include Magwitch, the fearful and fearsome convict; Estella, whose beauty is excelled only by her haughtiness; and the embittered Miss Havisham, an eccentric jilted bride
  Daniel464 | Oct 6, 2021 |
By 1860, Charles Dickens was a national celebrity and a sort of "elder statesman", now devoting much of his life to speeches, essays, social work, and generally not writing so many novels. Great Expectations is his 21st major work and 13th novel (of 15), and is - I would argue - his third masterpiece, following on from Bleak House and Little Dorrit, although in a very different way to either of them.

The psychological development of Pip Pirrip is perhaps unequalled in Dickens' canon, and it feels as if this is a breakthrough in terms of character. I've not yet read Our Mutual Friend, which I'm told takes this further, but it's certainly a good feeling. Estella herself is an interesting figure but ultimately more of a paper moth than a full human, although that is in some ways deliberate. More to the point, Great Expectations achieves its targets by applying characterisation to numerous supporting characters, such as Orlick and Magwitch, and in the rich history of Miss Havisham, a character who has so haunted Western culture ever since.

It is also perhaps the most challenging of Dickens' novels in its more complicated moral message. Pip's "Great Expectations" in many ways don't seem so bad: success! comfort! Dickens' arguments against them, along the lines of a younger generation coming of age and staying steadfast to moral development, seem admirable, although I can't help seeing him as a man growing older and more disconnected from the younger members of his society.

There's plenty of comedy sandwiched amongst the Gothic here, but what stands out most - as often with Dickens - is the beauty, from the ruined Satis house to the thriving metropolis and back to the rural marshes of Pip's youth. A truly poetic novel, that should cater to even the most Flaubertian of Dickens critics. (I hope!) ( )

O jovem órfão Philip Pirrip, de todos conhecido por Pip foi criado pela sua irmã que vive com o ferreiro Joe numa pequena povoação perto de Kent em meados do século XIX. Um dia Pip é convidado pela misteriosa Miss Havisham, uma velha senhora propietária da mais rica mas decrépita mansão de todo o condado. A sua missão é ser o companheiro de Estella, a jovem protegida de Miss Havisham mas a realidade é bem diferente do que aparenta: Pip é a mera cobaia para uma Estella que está a ser treinada por Miss Havisham como a derradeira vingança contra todos os homens cujo objectivo é "partir corações". «Grandes Esperanças» foi o maior sucesso editorial de Dickens e marcou o imaginário de gerações de leitores. Romance de formação que acompanha o protagonista Pip dos últimos anos da sua infância à idade adulta é também uma obra portentosa sobre as relações entre homens e mulheres e o ódio e o amor que as atravessam; um retrato de uma época e de uma moral que é ainda a nossa; ao mesmo tempo romance de aventuras, história romântica, meditação filosófica sobre os valores que nos regem e, acima de tudo, sobre as esperanças que temos e que de nós têm para o futuro. Grandes Esperanças de Charles Dickens

Hullo, can you say classic? ( )
  MGADMJK | Aug 27, 2021 |
Though the book was a bit slow and twisted it was a great read even if it WAS forced upon me by the school system. I didn't like the ending with who biddy married! I didn't want want her to marry pip but really, HIM? That's just kinda gross... And I like the original ending better as far as Pip's relationship with Estella goes. Oh and one more thing. You know that song Boyfriend by Justin Beiber? It goes perfectly to this book. "I could be a gentleman!" ( )

The idea of an innocent boy establishing unconsciously an immense influence over the mind of a hunted felon … haunted Dickens’s imagination until he gathered round it a whole new world of characters and incidents

My father's family name being Pirrip, and my christian name Philip, my infant tongue could make of both names nothing longer or more explicit than Pip. So, I called myself Pip, and came to be called Pip.

Neither were my notions of the theological positions to which my Catechism bound me, at all accurate; for, I have a lively remembrance that I supposed my declaration that I was to "walk in the same all the days of my life," laid me under an obligation always to go through the village from our house in one particular direction, and never to vary it by turning down by the wheelwright's or up by the mill.
...a money-box was kept on the kitchen mantel-shelf, in to which it was publicly made known that all my earnings were dropped. I have an impression that they were to be contributed eventually towards the liquidation of the National Debt, but I know I had no hope of any personal participation in the treasure.
Mr. Wopsle's great-aunt kept an evening school in the village; that is to say, she was a ridiculous old woman of limited means and unlimited infirmity, who used to go to sleep from six to seven every evening, in the society of youth who paid two pence per week each, for the improving opportunity of seeing her do it.
I had little objection to his being seen by Herbert or his father, for both of whom I had a respect; but I had the sharpest sensitiveness as to his being seen by Drummle, whom I held in contempt. So, throughout life, our worst weaknesses and meannesses are usually committed for the sake of the people whom we most despise.  (Chapter XXVII)
"Oh! I have a heart to be stabbed in or shot in, I have no doubt," said Estella, "and of course if it ceased to beat I should cease to be. But you know what I mean. I have no softness there, no--sympathy--sentiment--nonsense."
