Great Expectations traces the development of Philip Pirrip, called Pip, from a boy of shallow aspirations to a man of depth and character. Pip is reared by his sister and her husband, Joe Gargery, a blacksmith. As a young man, Pip is informed that an unknown benefactor has provided money for his education and expects to make him his heir. Forsaking his humbler friends, he sets off to London with the firm intention of becoming a gentleman and realizing his "great expectations."
