By Charles Dickens
Mr. Jaggers invites Pip into his office and, after grilling him for a while, tells Pip that he’s getting a gigantic birthday present. From now on, Pip will receive an allowance of 500 pounds a year.
Upon receiving his income, Pip decides to help Herbert by buying Herbert’s way into the merchant business. They find a merchant in need of a young partner, and Pip buys Herbert the partnership. Everything is all arranged anonymously, so that Herbert, like Pip, does not know the identity of his benefactor.
Chapter 40 involves Pip getting used to the idea of his benefactor being Magwitch, the ex-convict. Pip feels repulsed by the man, but also feels a responsibility to help hide him and keep him safe. Pip goes to see Jaggers, who isn’t incriminating himself – he refuses to acknowledge that he knows Magwitch is in London.
When Herbert leaves for work, Joe tells Pip he has only come to convey a message from Miss Havisham: that Estella is home and would like to see Pip.
Pip has to sit right in front of this convict, and, as he’s a heavy breather, Pip feels his convict-breath on him the whole ride home. The convict tells his compadre the story of giving a two pound note to a little boy in marsh country many years ago, and Pip realizes that he’s relating the exact same story.
Summary: Chapter 18
The stranger introduces himself as the lawyer Jaggers, and he goes home with Pip and Joe. Here, he explains that Pip will soon inherit a large fortune.
The stranger is an associate of Magwitch.
This suggests the stranger – like Magwitch – may also be in trouble with the law. Therefore we know that the stranger is associated in some way with Magwitch.
One night after school, Pip stops at the Three Jolly Bargeman pub to collect Joe. He finds Joe, Mr. Wopsle, and a strange man next to the roaring fire, drinking rum and smoking pipes. The strange man looks at Pip through squinty eyes and seems to recognize him.
The stranger that gives him the bank notes has the file. What does this incident with the bank notes indicate about Joe? Joe is honest because he goes back to the bar to give them back to their owner.
As Pip packs his things and gets ready to go, Herbert tells him that he will be riding in his coach with two convicts. Pip still has issues with the word ‘convict’ due to his experience years ago with the convict in the graveyard.
Pip says, “I knew that he knew my convict, the moment I saw the instrument.” When the man gives Pip some coins wrapped in paper that turns out to be bank notes, Pip knows that they must have come from the convict. The answer to this is found in Chapter 10. He later gives Pip a shilling and the bank notes.
Mrs. Joe dies, and Pip goes home for the funeral, feeling tremendous grief and remorse. Several years go by, until one night a familiar figure barges into Pip’s room—the convict, Magwitch, who stuns Pip by announcing that he, not Miss Havisham, is the source of Pip’s fortune.
Jaggers, fictional character in the novel Great Expectations (1860–61) by Charles Dickens. Mr. Jaggers is the honest and pragmatic lawyer who handles the affairs of the protagonist Pip as well as those of most of the characters in the book.
Miss Havisham explains that she has been grateful for the time that Pip has spent coming and is now going to pay Pip’s premium. A premium is like school tuition for an apprentice to train in a trade; in Pip’s case, he is to be a blacksmith.
As they get further into debt, Herbert and Pip try to deal with it the best they can. They still go out and spend too much money, but in the morning they list their debts and think about them. They don’t actually do anything about their debts. They simply feel remorse and keep going.
13. What do Pip and Herbert do to try to resolve their money problems? they it down and catalog their debt, but don’t pay any of it off.
The convict, not Miss Havisham, is Pip’s secret benefactor. Pip is not meant to marry Estella at all. With a crestfallen heart, Pip hears that the convict is even now on the run from the law, and that if he is caught, he could be put to death.
The Convict, who escapes from a prison ship, whom Pip treats kindly, and who in turn becomes Pip’s benefactor. His name is Abel Magwitch, but he uses the aliases “Provis” and “Mr Campbell” when he returns to England from exile in Australia.
Mrs Joe’s death is significant because she represented a time when his life plan was clear and had set rules – he would become a blacksmith and work hard. Pip actually feels a fondness for his dead sister even though she was horrible to him because she is linked with a simpler time in his life.
Estella calls him ridiculous, and this is clearly a sign that Pip should ask if he could be allowed to kiss her cheek like he did when she stayed with Miss Havisham. She tells him that she only let him kiss her back then in ”a spirit of contempt for the fawners and plotters.
Estella treats Pip very scornfully when they first meet. She makes no effort to smile or be pleasant, and she calls Pip “boy” over and over, although they seem to be the same age.
