Product Description

Powerful and haunting, Great Expectations is a foundational work in Western literature and one of Dickens' finest stories. Miss Havisham, a jilted bride who continues to live in her wedding dress while her wedding feast moulders on the table, has set up an arrangement where she's raising her adopted daughter Estella to break the heart of young Pip.

While working as a blacksmith apprentice for Joe, a solicitor informs Pip that he's come into means, transforming him into a man of Great Expectations. Assuming that it's from Miss Havisham to enable him to marry Estella, he goes to London to seek his fortune. Pip's assumptions however, are unfounded, and he's about to encounter some other characters from both his and Estella's past.

This Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition luxury volume features French flaps, rough front, and the world-class notes, introductions, and literary and educational extras for which the Penguin Classics are known. 480 pages. Cover illustration by Richard Sala. Introduction by Francine Prose.

Publisher's Description

A graphic deluxe edition to mark the 150th anniversary of Dickens's most well-loved novel 

A terrifying encounter with an escaped convict in a graveyard on the wild Kent marshes; a summons to meet the bitter, decaying Miss Havisham and her beautiful, cold-hearted ward Estella; the sudden generosity of a mysterious benefactor-these form a series of events that change the orphan Pip's life forever, as he eagerly abandons his humble origins to begin a new life as a gentleman. Dickens's haunting novel depicts Pip's education and development through adversity as he discovers the true nature of his great expectations. Published nine years before Dickens's death, it remains one of his most celebrated works.
