Ironically enough, true love is the one thing Estella will never receive, neither through her biological nor her foster mother, and least of all her husband.
Even Pip is, as I am going to show, not truly interested in what is best for Estella, but in what is best for himself. He knows that Estella does not love him but this does not affect his determination to one day call her his. Then, I thought, if she were, as I feared, by no means rapturously grateful for that destiny yet, when would she begin to be interested in me? When should I awaken the heart within her that was mute and sleeping now?
Like Estella, Pip grows up in a place where he is often not allowed to act as a child. Living with his extremely dominant and irascible sister and his kind but submissive brother-in-law, he longs for a warm home, to shelter and protect him from a dangerous and unforgiving world. The reasons, which he gave Biddy, are his desires, his own infatuation, or a? Pip has no real ground to like, let alone love Estella since he hardly knows her at all.
All Pip knows is a young girl, which was taught to break men? Estella is Miss Havisham? She taught Estella that men were bad because of her past, and Estella? This was so early seen in the beginning when Estella proclaims that Pip is common. At this moment in time, Pip felt bad and Estella knew it, but past that she says more insulting things in front of Miss Havisham for she knows it makes her proud keeping her happy.
This was horrible because it kept Estella from ever really loving somebody throughout the whole novel. Statements like,? Can you break his heart?
Dickens, 60 which are the source for identity crises in this book amongst both Pip and Estella alike. The actions which came from statements by Miss Havisham are what keeps Pip and Estella constantly going through out constant identity changes, thus making it almost near to impossible to love.
Pip never would be able to get a true grasp of who she was because she, like him, would change like the direction of wind at any given time.
For a great duration of the novel, Pip is infatuated with Estella. He thinks he is in love, but with no solid reasons as to why. As a reader, it can be perceived that Pip being a young man, is going through changes and is attracted physically to Estella however that can only measure so much of love.
This was shown when Biddy told Pip she liked him, but he opted for Estella. Pip experienced new feelings, which he never had experienced, feelings that he doesn?
Throughout the book we discover that his false love controls Pip. His infatuation for Estella inspires him to become an educated gentleman. We, like Pip have no idea how long he will feel like he does for Estella. We do know his infatuation is for the wrong reasons. The relationship between Pip and Joe changes dramatically. As Pip gets older and has turned into a gentleman, Joe has stayed the same, with his clumsy actions and lack of manners.
This creates a divide between what used to be a loving relationship. When Pip was a small boy, he felt close to Joe, as Joe was like a father figure and Pip looked up to him.
Pip starts out as a sympathetic character because he is poor, his parents are dead, and he must live under Mrs. Joe's strict rules. As the story moves on, my sympathy for Pip decreases in every way except one: his relationship with Estella Dickens never tells us what happens, if anything, between them in the end.
He leaves it only that they remain friends. There is a purpose for this. Dickens novel is about Pip's quest for Estella's love and what he is willing to do to gain it. I think that the story is never about the love itself. We can see this because in the majority of the story, Estella is only present in Pip's heart and thoughts Great Expectations is a novel in which Charles Dickens utilizes the theme of imprisonment and captivity to help the reader better their exploration of his characters.
Such exploration allows the reader to understand how and why the characters are imprisoned and gives insight into their personalities. Some of the characters are literally imprisoned and get a chance to think about the wretched things they have done that put them in prison Joe offers him sincerity and kindness. The fact that Joe forgave Pip after he was so rude to him after traveling to London, illustrates a strong parental bond between the two, because parents should always forgive their children.
Although Estella has grown up with the physical support from Miss Havisham, she is also living with the absence of her real parents On the other hand, Uncle Joe has a very respected love for Mrs. Joe, considering how harshly she treats him, Mrs. Estella also gets married to a man that loves her, Bently Drummle, but does not return his love, and chooses to marry for profits only One of them is the main character, Pip, who ultimately goes through the most character development with the help of outside forces and developed, minor characters.
His distress is exemplified by the fact that he deserted his loyal friend Joe for the life that the convict Magwitch has given him. His greatest grief, however, came from the fact that he believed he could never win the love of Estella, learning that she had married Bentley Drummel.
The strange coincidence of these findings cause Pip to change his attitude toward his further expectation and resume his belief that he still might have a chance w Miss Havisham controls and teaches Estella instructions to break the hearts of men as her own personal vendetta against all men after her love for a man is unrequited. But, these expectations can begin to define a person if he believes he has to conform to society's expectations.

Of these reasons, there are three major ones that I will analyze Many people believe that since Bulwer-Lytton gave Dickens input on the second ending that it is not as true.
Although Dickens may have inadvertently been plagiarizing, the original ending is the way that Dickens felt the novel should end, as opposed to the way Bulwer-Lytton felt it should end In life we go through many events whether they are good or bad, that affect our life in a positive or negative way.
The book Great Expectations by Charles Dickens explains how we should not let our past manipulate our future.

Before Pip gained wealth and confidence, he constantly tried to impress the beautiful, yet arrogant Estella Dickens uses Pip and various other characters to show that class mobility is nearly impossible in the Victorian society.
If one is able to move into another class then it would change them for the worse and they would end up where they first began.
