For those who are unfamiliar with Dickens’s brilliant insight into pre-Victorian England, Great Expectations begins with an orphaned boy’s terrifying encounter with an escaped convict. It sets in motion dramatic changes in his life. Later, he turns his back on his humble beginnings as a blacksmith’s apprentice and strives to better himself as a London gentleman. He is also in hot pursuit of the love of his childhood, the cold but stunningly beautiful, Estella. Through it all, he is blissfully unaware of the dangers awaiting him.
The story has deep resonances for all young people even today as it brings the hopes and dreams of youth into the complex realities of adulthood.
