Charles Dickens Biography

Charles DickensCharles Dickens was an English writer of the Victorian era that has penned one of the best books ever written and has created some of the best-known characters in the literary world.

Plot

From the master of character-based stories, is born yet another memorable character – Pip.

Pip is a young orphan who lives with his sister and his sister’s husband, whom we meet as he is sitting on his parent’s grave one night.

Suddenly he comes face to face with an escaped convict, who asks him for food.

Pip does as he is asked, but the police find the convict anyway.

However, this fearsome man protects Pip by saying that he has stolen the items himself.

One day, Pip goes to the Satis House, which is the estate of Miss Havisham, a wealthy dowager, along with his Uncle Pumblechook.

Their host is quite an eccentric (which makes her a truly compelling character) – she keeps the clocks in her house all stopped at a specific time, and constantly wears her old wedding dress in all of the occasions.
