Wie gebannt steht der kleine Pip in dem geheimnisumwitterten Haus der reichen Miss Havisham und bestaunt eine mit Staub bedeckte Hochzeitstafel. Die exzentrische alte Besitzerin empfängt ihn bei Kerzenlicht in einem verblichenen Brautkleid, das sie nicht abgelegt hat, seit ihr Bräutigam sie vor Jahrzehnten am Hochzeitstag verließ. Nun soll Pip ihr mit Kartenspielen die Zeit vertreiben helfen. Während der allwöchentlichen Besuche verliebt er sich bald in Miss Havishams Adoptivtochter, die schöne Estella, und beginnt von Reichtum und Bildung zu träumen – schier unerfüllbare Wünsche für den Waisenjungen und Schmiedelehrling. Da eröffnet ihm plötzlich ein Rechtsanwalt die Aussicht auf „große Erwartungen“ – ein unbekannter Gönner will ihn zu einem Gentleman erziehen lassen. Bald hat Pip sein einfaches Leben im Dorf vergessen und führt in London ein unbekümmertes und verschwenderisches Dasein. Erst das Auftauchen seines Wohltäters reißt ihn aus seinen Illusionen. Unversehens gerät er in eine lebensgefährliche Lage, aus der er sich nur mit Hilfe seiner Freunde befreien kann.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2001 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: gut, Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn (Englisches Seminar), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: 1. Zwei Entwicklungsromane 1.1 Die Ich - Erzählperspektive “To be quite sure I had fallen into no unconscious repetitions, I read David Copperfield again the other day, and was affected by it to a degree you would hardly believe.“ - Bereits diese Aussage des Autors selbst angesichts des Entstehungsprozesses von Great Expectations verweist auf die in mehrfacher Hinsicht anzutreffende Verwandtschaft der beiden einzigen Werke, in denen er die Perspektive des allwissenden Erzählers verläßt. Rund zehn Jahre nach Erscheinen seines stark biographisch beeinflußten Romans David Copperfield 1850 kehrt Charles Dickens hier erstmals zur homodiegetischen Perspektive in der Berichterstattung zurück. In beiden Werken betrachtet das geläuterte Ich aus dem Blickwinkel großer zeitlicher Distanz eine entscheidende heikle Entwicklungsphase seines Lebens, deren Grundkonflikt erst durch den langsamen Prozeß des Erkennens und Lernens gelöst werden kann.

The negotiation of expectations in tourism is a complex and dynamic process – one that is central to the imagination of cultural difference. Expectations not only affect the lives and experiences of tourists, but also their hosts, and play an important part in the success or failure of the overall tourism experience. It is for this reason, the authors argue, that special attention should be given to how expectations constitute and sustain tourism. The case studies presented here explore what fuels the desires to visit particular places, to what degree expectations inform the experience of the place, and the frequent disjunctions between tourist expectations and experiences. Careful attention is paid to how the imagination of the visitor inspires the imagination of the host, and vice-versa; how tourists and host communities actively imagine, re-imagine, and shape each other's lives. This realization, has profound consequences, not solely for academic analysis, but for all those who participate in and work within the tourism industry.

The strange and varied lives of the ten children of the world's most beloved novelist Charles Dickens, famous for the indelible child characters he created—from Little Nell to Oliver Twist and David Copperfield—was also the father of ten children (and a possible eleventh). What happened to those children is the fascinating subject of Robert Gottlieb's Great Expectations. With sympathy and understanding he narrates the highly various and surprising stories of each of Dickens's sons and daughters, from Kate, who became a successful artist, to Frank, who died in Moline, Illinois, after serving a grim stretch in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Each of these lives is fascinating on its own. Together they comprise a unique window on Victorian England as well as a moving and disturbing study of Dickens as a father and as a man.

Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2 (B), University of Frankfurt (Main) (Institute for England - und American Studies), course: Charles Dickens - Great Expectatoins, language: English, comment: Double spaced., abstract: 1. Introduction Charles Dickens' novel Great Expectations" as a Bildungsroman or gothic novel depicts the growth of a young boy from low social class origin to an adult gentleman containing the struggles with women, employers and relatives. The main character Philip 'Pip' Pirrip introduces the reader to the novel as a young boy from about six years, although Pip indeed wrote down the story of his life as an adult. Pip has always dreamt of becoming well-educated and of being introduced to a higher social class than he actually belonged to at first. Fortunately, Pip is granted the chance of social rising and he gets to know a lot of people who influence him and his great expectations from his early youth crucially. In Victorian times women and men were regarded to be different in their nature but never-theless complementary. Women should be a guideline for their husbands in moral and reli-gious questions. When the husbands were at home they were protected from "destructive tendencies of the market" (Farrell). In "Great Expectations" it is not easy to find one woman who fits into this ideal. Especially the three main female characters are rather de-structive than protective for men. However, throughout the novel Pip is confronted with several women of different calibre, from shrewd and hysterical, cold-hearted and distant to caring and loveable. On the follow-ing pages I am going to introduce and characterise the three main female characters who influence Pip's life the most: his sister Mrs. Joe Gargery, Mrs. Havisham and Estella. Of course Pip gets to know more women, but since they play only a more or less minor role in his life, I am not going to put them under cons"
