Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations is renowned for its brilliant narrative, memorable characters, and illuminating depictions of the complexities of English class and society during the Victorian era. Joseph Luzzi, professor of literature at Bard College, explores the literary techniques and devices that give the beloved classic, published in 1861, its enduring fame. Luzzi highlights Dickens’ remarkable psychological insight as he explores the motives and actions of characters such as the protagonist Pip, Estella, Magwitch, Miss Havisham, and Joe Gargery—a fascinating cast that makes the novel one of Dickens’ finest.
