Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
ISBN: 9780199219766 / 0199219761 - Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, introduction by Robert Douglas-Fairhurst. Published by Oxford University Press, 2008. Softcover. Used, Good condition. 544 pp.
A powerful and moving novel, Great Expectations is suffused with Dickens's memories of the past and its grip on the present, and it raises disturbing questions about the extent to which individuals affect each other's lives.
This edition reprints the definitive Clarendon text. Robert Douglas-Fairhurst's new introduction ranges widely across critical issues raised by the novel: its biographical genesis, ideas of origin and progress and what makes a "gentleman," memory, melodrama, and the book's critical reception.
