Charles Dickens Ò 2 Read & download Review ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ò Charles Dickens Free read Great Expectations My father's family name being Pirrip and my Christian name Philip my infant tongue could make of both names nothing longer or explicit than Pip So I calle There was a long hard time when I kept far from me the remembrance of what I had thrown away when I was uite ignorant of its worth I first read Great Expectations when I was thirteen years old It was the first of Dickens works that I d read of my own volition the only other being Oliver Twist which we d studied parts of in school You know I missed out on a lot when I was thirteen By this I mean that I didn t always understand the deeper meaning lying beneath the surface of my favourite classics I favoured fast paced and gritty stories and didn t understand the love for Austen later cured But there was something about Great Expectations that hit me hard on all levels and there was a deeper understanding I took from it even back thenI should say first of all this book makes me feel sad Not a Lifetime movie emotionally overwrought pass me the kleenex kind of sad I have read it several times and have never once cried while reading it But the book never fails to leave me with this hollow feeling that things could have been so different When I was a kid I often wished I could jump inside the TV and warn the good guys not to do something stop something horrible from happening This is that kind of book for me All the not knowing and mistaken assumptions that float between the characters in this novel is tortureSome readers don t like Dickens He s been called lacking in style as well as a bunch of other things Well I think he s like the Stephen King of the Victorian era He loves his drama his characters are well drawn but sometimes edging towards caricatures he has a wonderful talent for painting a vivid picture of a scene in your mind but a bunch of his books are a hundred pages too long Whatever I love his stories And I love his charactersIn Great Expectations you have the orphaned Philip Pip Pirrip who has spent his short life being poor and being bullied by his sister who is also his guardian You have Joe Gargery a kind man who also allows himself to be bullied by Pip s sister his wife Then you have the infamous Miss Havisham who was abandoned at the altar and now spends her days wandering around her mansion in her old wedding dress hating men and raising the young Estella to be just like her You are in every line I have ever read At its heart this is a book about someone who is given an opportunity to have all their dreams come true to be better than they ever thought they could be to be loved by someone who they never thought would look at them We all yearn for something badly at times Imagine having the chance to get exactly what you always wanted Imagine becoming better and higher than you knew was possible Imagine having all of that and then realizing that perhaps the most important thing you ever had got left behindPip was always my favourite Dickens protagonist because he wants so much and I sympathise with him I can understand why he does what he does and why he wants what he wants But the saddest thing is that ambition can make you lose sight of other important things and Pip has a lot of hard lessons to learn along the way It s a book that was extremely relevant to the times when social class was of utmost importance in Britain Essentially the book deconstructs what it means to be a gentlemen and makes a not so subtle criticism of a class based societyWho are the real gentlemen The top hat wearing men of London with all their fine china and ceremony Pip who gets a chance to become one of them Or Joe Gargery the rough talking blacksmith who even years later tells Pip you and me was ever friends There is a powerful lesson in here and I love it Even after all these yearsBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram

Charles Dickens Ò 2 Read & download Review ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ò Charles Dickens Free read Great Expectations D myself Pip and came to be called Pip I give Pirrip as my father's family name on the authority of his tombstone and my sister but this is my tale not my Pause you who read this and think for a moment of the long chain of iron or gold of thorns or flowers that would never have bound you but for the formation of the first link on one memorable day That is such a uote If there was ever a novel that shows us the dangers of false perceptions then it s Great Expectations Pip is such a fool he constantly misjudges those around him and he constantly misjudges his own worth This has lead him down a road of misery because the person who held the highest expectations for Pip was Pip himself But in spite of this Pip does learn the error of his ways and becomes a much better person though not before hurting those that have the most loyalty to him The corrupting power of money is strong through this novel The money Pip received clouds his vison completely He in his innocence longed to be a gentleman but when he has the chance he forgets everything thing he is In his self imposed aggrandisement he can only deduce that his money came from a source of respectability his limited capacity has determined that only he a gentleman could receive money from a worthy source But what he perceives as respectable is the problem Indeed Dickens contrasts societies gentleman created through social station with the true gentleman of the age who may or may not have any money Pip has falsely perceived that to be a gentleman one must have money and must have the social graces that comes with it However this is far from the truth as Pip later learns He thinks Joe is backward and ungentlemanly but Joe in reality is of a gentle man than Pip could ever be In this he has forgotten his routes and his honest if somewhat rough upbringing He has been tainted by money and the rise in class that came with it I think if he never received the allowance he would have eventually been happy at the forge He may have sulked for a year or two but ultimately he would have got over himself as he does eventually do The money gave him hope it gave him a route in which he could seek his Estella Without the money he would have realised she was in fact unobtainable regardless of his class he would have moved on and got on with his life But that wouldn t have made for a very interesting novel Pip s journey of morale regeneration is the keyIndeed Pip wouldn t have learnt a thing Through the correcting of his perceptions he learns the value of loyalty and simple human kindness This changes him and he is essentially a much better person for it He learns the errors of his ways and how shameful and condescending his behaviour has been to those that hold him most dear namely Joe You can feel the pain in his narration as he tells the last parts of his story it becomes clear that Pip could never forgive himself for his folly He wishes forgiveness from those that love him that s why he forgives Havisham but I don t think he fully deserves it He is repentant but the damage is done Heaven knows we never be ashamed of our tears for they are rain upon the blinding dust of the earth overlaying our hard hearts Pip s morale regeneration was a necessary facet for the brilliance of this work It creates an ending that for me was perfect It is not the ending that Pip thought he would get but it is the ending this novel deserved Pip s morale regeneration and revelations are just not enough to offset the past He has grown but like Havisham cannot turn back the clocks The ending Joe receives signifies this he as one of the only true gentleman of the novel receives his overdue happiness Whereas Pip is destined to spend the rest of his life in a state of perpetual loneliness he most certainly learnt his lesson the hard way Suffering has been stronger than all other teaching and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be I have been bent and broken but I hope into a better shape Anguish is in eual measures Pip s story though ultimately sad is not the most woe begotten of the character stories in this novel Abel Magwitch and Miss Havisham are two incredibly miserable individuals because life has really got them down Havisham is the caricature of the spinster she is stuck in the past uarter to nine to be precise and is unable to move on she has turned bitter and yellow she has imposed herself to perpetual agony Despite her harshness and venom there is a flicker of light within her soul that Pip unleashes For me she is the most memorable and well written character in this novel because her story transcends that of Pip s And then there is the lovable Abel Magwitch The poor man had been used and cheated he had been bargained away and sacrificed He has been shown no kindness in his life and when he meets a young Pip in the marshes he is touched by the small measure of friendship the boy offers him His response to repay that debt with what he believes to be kindness in turn These characters are incredibly memorable and harbour two tragic and redemptive stories But in order to display their anguish to the world and society they both use another to exact their revenge Havisham uses Estella to break the hearts of men like hers was once broken Magwitch creates his own gentleman as a revenge to the world of gentleman that betrayed him I love Great Expectations It is than just a story of love it is a strong story about the power of loyalty and forgiveness it is a story about falsehoods and misperceptions it is a story of woe and deeply felt sadness it is about how the folly of youth can alter your life for ever It is an extraordinary novel I ve now read it three times and I know I m not finished with yet
