Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

An absorbing mystery as well as a morality tale, the story of Pip, a poor village lad, and his expectations of wealth is Dickens at his most deliciously readable. The cast of characters includes kindly Joe Gargery, the loyal convict Abel Magwitch and the haunting Miss Havisham. If you have heartstrings, count on them being tugged. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Bei dieser Ausgabe handelt es sich inhaltlich NICHT um die Ignatius Critical Edition wie im Produkttitel falsch angegeben!
Der Herausgeber/Verlage ist nicht Ignatius, sondern es handelt sich um einen Druck aus Polen by Amazon Fulfilment, der nur die Story abgedruckt hat. Das, was die kritische Ausgabe kennzeichnet (Anmerkungen und Artikel) ist nicht enthalten.
Diese Irreführung des Kunden ist inakzeptabel!

Unfortunately, monotheistic religions, for some reason or other, seem to be quite reluctant when it comes to giving the pig its due, irrespective of all the crunchy potential of this bountiful creature in the form of fried bacon or roast pork. Mr. Wopsle, to whom we are indebted for the quotation above, in this vein, deems it quite appropriate to ponder on the dangers of a young boy's being pampered and degenerating towards ingratitude and gross sensuality, while he himself is actually partaking of a dish of fine hog roast, and Uncle Pumblechook, this servile hypocrite, dutifully backs him up - in both enterprises. This Christmas dinner is one of the finest comic scenes in Charles Dickens's novel "Great Expectations" (1861).

Dickens was already a well-established author and editor at the time of writing this novel, and for all his fame and popularity likewise had experienced some fears of his old star being about to wane, what with Thackery's appealing to the genteel readers and with social problems also being treated by the Brontës, George Eliot and Mrs. Gaskell. The happy-go-lucky days of Pickwick, Nickleby and Little Nell were long over. When sales of Dickens's magazine "All the Year Round" were dropping alarmingly, due to the public's lack of interest in the serialization of a novel by Charles Lever, the Inimitable himself stepped into the breach with "Great Expectations", a novel that showed a new Dickensian quality - that of drawing life-like, full-dimensional characters instead of mere caricatures.

The story centres around the orphan boy Pip, who grows up in his virago sister's household on the marshes near a town that is easily recognizable as Rochester.

The readers first encounter Pip in the renowned scene with the convict -- "growling, red-eyed, and desperate": "Bring me food, boy! Or I'll eat your heart and liver too.." Out of kindness in heart, Pip "befriends" the convict as his fate is changed forever. Little does he know how his whole existence is to complete the life of another--a stooping savior.
Though of little social significance, Pip lives a content life full of innocent happiness and simple joys. As his horizon suddenly expands with an unexpected fortune, Pip finds his own path crossed with the paths of a misanthropic Miss Havisham and her young, beautiful, yet seductive ward Estella. Extravagance feeds Pip's vanity to burgeon, desire flourishes his motives of becoming some one he can never become. Pip strives desperately to extricate from the deepest root of his whole being. And the obsession grows for Estella as he wanders of further away from his true path.
Followed by the death of Magwitch, love once again awakes within Pip as he embraces the man hidden in the darkest corner of his soul. No longer the dashing young man in his blooming age, Pip at last starts a expedition to pursue something that is conquerable.
Thus we see "no shadow of another parting from her"...

Von Donald Mitchell TOP 500 REZENSENT am 7. Juli 2004
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
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.
