Description

‘His novels will endure as long as the language itself’ Peter Ackroyd

Dickens’s haunting late novel depicts the education and development of a young man, Pip, as his life is changed by a series of events – 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 – and he discovers the true nature of his ‘great expectations’. This definitive edition includes appendices on Dickens’s original ending, giving an illuminating glimpse into a great novelist at work.

With an Introduction by DAVID TROTTER
