About the Edition

Pip, a poor orphan being raised by a cruel sister, does not have much in the way of great expectations between his terrifying experience in a graveyard with a convict named Magwitch and his humiliating visits with the eccentric Miss Havisham"s beautiful but manipulative niece, Estella, who torments him until he is elevated to wealth by an anonymous benefactor.

Hillis Miller declares, Great Expectations is the most unified and concentrated expression of Dickens"s abiding sense of the world, and Pip might be called the archetypal Dickens hero.From the Trade Paperback edition.
