      In Great Expectations, on the contrary, Dickens seems to have attained the mastery of powers which formerly more or less mastered has fairly discovered that he cannot, like Thackeray. Pip. The protagonist and narrator of Great Expectations, Pip begins the story as a young orphan boy being raised by his sister and brother-in-law in the marsh country of Kent, in the southeast of England. Pip is passionate, romantic, and somewhat unrealistic at heart, and he tends to expect more for himself than is reasonable.

        Like all of his books after The Pickwick Papers, Charles Dickens' Great Expectations was written to educate and enlighten, as well as entertain. Readers learn about the class system in Victorian England through Pip's journey as he moves up the class scale from country 5/5. Part II. In London, Pip meets with Jaggers and his clerk, Mr. Wemmick. Wemmick brings Pip to the apartment of Herbert Pocket, who, Pip discovers, is the Pale Young Gentleman he .

      Great Expectations is written in the first person and is virtually a fictional autobiography of “Pip” from his childhood, through often painful experiences, to adulthood. It charts his progress as he moves from the Kent marshes - his social status radically changed having gained an unknown benefactor - to busy commercial London.   A Classic Great Expectations really delighted me with its plot twists and relatively easy style, given the time in which it was written. Although all characters but the protagonist are fairly two dimensional, everybody has a role to play and Dickens makes sure it is played perfectly/5(K).
