]A terrifying graveyard encounter with an escaped convict; a summons to meet the bitter, decaying Miss Havisham and her beautiful, cold-hearted ward Estella; the sudden generosity of an unknown benefactor—this series of events changes the orphaned Pip’s life forever, and he eagerly flees his humble origins in favor of a new life as a gentleman in London. Dickens’ haunting late novel depicts Pip’s education and development through adversity as he discovers that having expectations is a double-edged sword.
