Notes

General Note
"Now a Major Motion Picture" -- Cover.
General Note
"A note on the text: the present edition has been reprinted from the Penguin Classics edition (2003) of Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, with an introduction by David Trotter and edited with notes by Charlotte Mitchell. The appendix prints the end of the novel as Dickens originally conceived it."--P. [vii].
Description
"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."--Publisher's website.
