A terrifying encounter with an escaped convict in a graveyard on the wild Kent marshes; a summons to meet the bitter Miss Havisham and her beautiful but cold-hearted ward Estella; the sudden generosity of a mysterious benefactor—these meetings and events change the orphaned Pip's life forever in Charles Dickens's haunting late novel. He depicts Pip's education and development through adversity as he eagerly abandons his humble origins to begin a new life as a gentleman, and discovers the true nature of his "great expectations." This edition, from the Be Classic series of trade paperbacks, features a contemporary photo-collage cover, with the text from the first published version of 1861.
