GREAT EXPECTATIONS

CHARLES DICKENS    Book Number: 85344    Product format: Hardback

Probably the most glamorous single-volume hardback edition we have ever seen of this great classic, a black hardback cover with large, mother of pearl blue and lilac embossed decoration, making an almost 3D effect. Orphaned Philip Pirrip, known as Pip, lives with his tyrannical elder sister and her kindly blacksmith husband. After surviving a terrifying churchyard encounter with an escaped convict, Pip is invited to visit embittered, reclusive spinster Miss Havisham. Jilted on her wedding day, she delights in using the beautiful Estella, whom she has adopted, as an instrument of revenge. Pip falls for the disdainful, cold-hearted Estella, and vows to better himself in the hope of winning her over. A windfall raises his expectations but proves to be no panacea as wealth alters his values and brings little contentment. Along the path to wisdom and enlightenment, Pip also learns to identify his mysterious benefactor. The novel was Charles Dickens's penultimate completed novel examining class, social mobility, and the corrupting power of money. While adding to his gallery of unforgettable characters. New glamorous edition with 574 silver edged, cream glossy stock pages.
