  1. 1. GREAT EXPECTATIONS . CHARLES DICKENSCHAPTER 7: I VISIT MISS HAVISHAM AND MEET ESTELLASUMMARY Pip is an orphan who lives with his sister and her husband. When Pip was big enough he started todo some odd jobs and one day he was called by Miss Havisham, a wealthy and strange old woman,to go to her house to play. Miss Havisham house was called Satis. When Pip arrived there he saw that it was an old brickhouse with some of the windows walled up and others with bars; a very unwelcoming house. Insidethe house was even worse, everything was dark and only a candle lit the way until the Lady´s room.Pip knocked at the room door and went in. Miss Havisham was the strangest woman he had everknown; he felt afraid of her. The room was big and well illuminated with candles , but without anydaylight . In an armchair sat the strange lady dressed in white, a white wedding dress, white shoes, along white veil and with wedding flowers on her hair; those were white too.Everything that surrounded her was exactly the same as the day of her wedding, when her fiancéleft her. Since then she had not left her room and even the clocks had stopped at the time she readhis boyfriend letter; at twenty to nine.Miss Havisham told Pip that her heart was broken and that she hadn´t seen daylight since before hewas born, that she was tired and bored but that she enjoyed seeing people play and she asked him toplay cards with Estella.Estella was a young girl, more or less the same age as Pip, that Miss Havisham had adopted someyears ago.Estella was arrogant and she felt herself superior. She was cruel to Pip and treated him very badly.She laughed at him and made him feel poor and inferior, until the point of making him cried.Miss Havisham had educated her to hate men and to treat them badly as a revenge of her ownsuffering.However, from that day Pip started to be in love with her.OPINIONS- A dream come true. The story of an orphan boy who escapes poverty and rises through the classstructure of Dicken´s England. - A novel faithful to Dicken´s style where he shows us the differences of social classes and touchesproblems such as the difficulties that the poor face and how different there life is compared to therich.- Dickens was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era and his novels are very usefulto understand this period.
  2. 2. - A great novel that touches a topic that can be as actual in the 19th century as in the 21st century;the importance of values, friendship and love in front of richness and power.GOOD-8 CORRECTIONSGREAT EXPECTATIONS .
