Description:

Language: English . Brand New Book. Pope John Paul II described Dickens books as filled with love for the poor and a sense of social regeneration . . . warm with imagination and humanity. Such true charity permeates Dickens novels and ultimately drives the characters either to choose regeneration or risk disintegration. In Great Expectations, Pip--symbolic of the pilgrim convert--gains both improved fortunes and a growth in wisdom, but as he acquires the latter, he must relinquish the former--ending with a wealth of profound goodness, not of worldly goods. That the Dickensian message was a Christian one is unmistakable. Reminiscent of an Augustinian model, one of reflection, conversion, and moral improvement, Pip undergoes an internal change that manifests itself in his profound contrition for his earlier deeds and his equally profound resolution to make amends. As we travel with Pip, we find that Dickens leads us to an acceptance of worldly limitations and an anticipation of final salvation. The exciting new edition of Dickens s classic novel includes critical essays by some of today s leading Dickens scholars. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Pope John Paul II described Dickens' books as "filled with love for the poor and a sense of social regeneration . . . warm with imagination and humanity". Such true charity permeates Dickens' novels and ultimately drives the characters either to choose regeneration or risk disintegration. In Great Expectations, Pip--symbolic of the pilgrim convert--gains both improved fortunes and a growth in wisdom, but as he acquires the latter, he must relinquish the former--ending with a wealth of profound goodness, not of worldly goods. That the Dickensian message was a Christian one is unmistakable. Reminiscent of an Augustinian model, one of reflection, conversion, and moral improvement, Pip undergoes an internal change that manifests itself in his profound contrition for his earlier deeds and his equally profound resolution to make amends. As we travel with Pip, we find that Dickens leads us to an acceptance of worldly limitations and an anticipation of final salvation. The exciting new edition of Dickens's classic novel includes critical essays by some of today's leading Dickens scholars.

Review: An absorbing mystery as well as a morality tale, the story of Pip, a poor village lad, and his expectations of wealth is Dickens at his most deliciously readable. The cast of characters includes kindly Joe Gargery, the loyal convict Abel Magwitch and the haunting Miss Havisham. If you have heartstrings, count on them being tugged.
