Great Books: Great Expectations DVD
Like Dickens' other stories, Great Expectations is published as a serial and is an instant hit. Authors, actors, and scholars discuss the many interpretations of Miss Havisham and Pip's desire to become a gentleman. A tour of real-life settings Dickens used in his novels and examples of how Pip's obsession with Estella and changed relationship with Joe reflect the author's life and the British class system at the time.
