Mehr über den Autor

Für viele Leser ist der Name Charles Dickens verbunden mit dessen "Lieblingskind" "David Copperfield" (1849-50). Geboren wurde Dickens 1812 als Sohn eines Marinezahlmeisters in Landport bei Portsmouth. Nach zunächst glücklicher Kindheit musste er schon früh Geld verdienen, weil sein Vater zwei Jahre im Schuldgefängnis saß. Der junge Charles arbeitete in einer Schuhwichsfabrik, war Schreiber in einer Anwaltskanzlei und Journalist. Mit Zeitungsgründungen und durch das Schreiben von Romanen und Geschichten wurde er schnell erfolgreich und berühmt. Die Leser mochten seine anfangs humorvollen, später eher düsteren Romane, die das Leben in der englischen Mittel- und Unterschicht kritisch beschrieben. Dickens war verheiratet und hatte 10 Kinder. Er starb 1870 nach einem Schlaganfall.

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Dickens considered Great Expectations one of his "little pieces," and indeed, it is slim compared to such weighty novels as David Copperfield or Nicholas Nickleby. But what this cautionary tale of a young man raised high above his station by a mysterious benefactor lacks in length, it more than makes up for in its remarkable characters and compelling story. The novel begins with young orphaned Philip Pirrip--Pip--running 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. Having started his novel in a cemetery, Dickens then ups the stakes and introduces his hero 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 Miss Havisham's ward, Estella, a little girl who delights in tormenting Pip about his rough hands and future as a blacksmith's apprentice.
I had never thought of being ashamed of my hands before; but I began to consider them a very indifferent pair. Her contempt for me was so strong, that it became infectious, and I caught it.
It is an infection that Pip never quite recovers from; as he spends more time with Miss Havisham and the tantalizing Estella, he becomes more and more discontented with his guardian, the kindhearted blacksmith, Joe, and his childhood friend Biddy. When, after several years, Pip becomes the heir of an unknown benefactor, he leaps at the chance to leave his home and friends behind to go to London and become a gentleman. But having expectations, as Pip soon learns, is a two-edged sword, and nothing is as he thought it would be. Like that other "little piece," A Tale of Two Cities, Great Expectations is different from the usual Dickensian fare: the story is dark, almost surreal at times, and you'll find few of the author's patented comic characters and no comic set pieces. And yet this is arguably the most compelling of Dickens's novels for, unlike David Copperfield or Martin Chuzzlewit, the reader can never be sure that things will work out for Pip. Even Dickens apparently had his doubts--he wrote two endings for this novel. --Alix Wilber -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Format: Audio CD
Jedem Fan von Charles Dickens, der einigermaßen des Englischen mächtig ist, sei dringend zum Kauf dieses Hörbuchs geraten. Die Geschichte wird durch Hugh Lauries hervorragende Leistung zu einem wunderbaren Hörerlebnis, das es einem erlaubt, richtiggehend in die Welt der Hauptfigur Pip einzutauchen. Laurie liest die verschiedenen Charaktere mit unterschiedlichen Akzenten und Stimmlagen, was tatsächlich oft vergessen läßt, daß hier nicht ein ganzes Ensemble, sondern nur ein Schauspieler am Werk ist. Das Hörbuch bietet drei Stunden exzellente Unterhaltung und ist auf jeden Fall einen Kauf wert, zumal für einen Fan des grandiosen Hugh Laurie.

6 von 7 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Donald Mitchell TOP 500 REZENSENT am 7. Juli 2004
Format: Audio CD
Great Expectations succeeds beyond almost all novels of its time in exploring the roots of character and moral behavior. Charles Dickens makes the case for there being the potential for good in everyone. Evil and sin follow from a combination of being self-absorbed and selfish. What is remarkable about the way these themes are handled is that they are clearly based on an assessment of human psychology, long before that field was established.

The book is also remarkable for its many indelibly memorable and complex characters. Miss Havisham, Pip, Magwitch, Mr. Jaggers, and Estella are characters you will think about again and again in years to come.

The book also surrounds you with a powerful sense of place. Although the England described here is long gone, it becomes as immediate as a nightmare or a dream that you have just awakened from.

For a book about moral questions, Great Expectations also abounds in action. The scenes involving Pip and Magwitch are especially notable for way action expresses character and thought.

Great Expectations also reeks of irony, something that is seldom noticed in more modern novels. Overstatements are created to draw the irony out into the open, where it is unmistakable. Yet the overstatements attract, rather than repel. The overstatements are like the theatrical make up which makes actors and actresses look strange in the dressing room, but more real on the stage when seen from the audience.

At the same time, the plot is deliciously complex in establishing and solving mysteries before that genre had been born. As you read Great Expectations, raise your expectations to assume that you will receive answers to any dangling details. By reading the book this way, you will appreciate the craft that Mr.

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Gulley Jimson am 19. Oktober 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
This has to be my favourite Dickens novel. In fact, I would go so far as to place it alongside Flaubert's "Sentimental Education" and Dostoevsky's "Brothers Karamazov" as one of the great novels of the 19th century. I am astonished by the number of one and two star reviews even though they do appear to come mainly from high school students being "forced" to read the novel for English class. Judging by the spelling mistakes and grammatical errors which proliferate these submissions, Dickens is not the only thing that they've had trouble staying awake for. In addition, it is ridiculous to suggest that Dickens's novels were so lengthy because he was "being paid by the word." His books initially appeared in serial form as books were very expensive in the Victorian era and he understandably wished to avoid precluding large sections of his target readership from being able to sample them. The fact that some current "readers" find this novel "too long and boring" is, I believe, a sad reflection on our media saturated society where a two-second attention span is rapidly becoming the norm.
