The Penguin English Library Edition of Great Expectations by Charles Dickens'What do you think that is?' she asked me, again pointing with her stick; 'that, where those cobwebs are?''I can't guess what it is, ma'am.''It's a great cake. A bride-cake. Mine!'Great Expectations, Dickens's funny, frightening and tender portrayal of the orphan Pip's journey of self-discovery, is one of his best-loved works. Showing how a young man's life is transformed by a mysterious series of events - an encounter with an escaped prisoner; a visit to a black-hearted old woman and a beautiful girl; a fortune from a secret donor - Dickens's late novel is a masterpiece of psychological and moral truth, and Pip among his greatest creations.
