Notes:
Young, orphaned Philip Pirrip - Pip - runs afoul of an escaped convict in a cemetery. This terrifying personage bullies Pip into stealing food and a file for him, threatening that if he tells a soul 'your heart and your liver shall be tore out, roasted and ate'. The boy does as he's asked, but the convict is captured anyway, and transported to the penal colonies in Australia. Our hero is then introduced into the decaying household of Miss Havisham, a wealthy, half-mad woman who was jilted on her wedding day many years before and has never recovered. Pip is brought there to play with her ward, Estella, a little girl who delights in tormenting Pip about his rough hands and future as a blacksmith's apprentice, in Charles Dickens' classic tale of adolescence, growth and loyalty.
