The bourgeoisie are “owners of the means of social-production and employers of wage-labour,” and the character which fits this category best is Gregor’s manager (Marx, 21). He appears soon after the readers are told that Gregor is late for the train, and is impersonal, insensitive, and demanding.

In the beginning of the play he is shown to be an influential character and stands up against what he believes is incorrect. Proctor always had a dislike towards Parris due to his mercenary acts as a man of God, Parris: “Mr. Corey, you will look far for a man of my kind at sixty pound a year! I am not used to this poverty; I left a thrifty business in the Barbados to serve the Lord. I do not fathom it, why am I persecuted here?
An indication of this is “I was ashamed of the dear fellow” (Dickens 145). Pip is ashamed of Joe’s appearance and behaviour because it is an embarrassment for him; he sees it as confirmation of his low class origins. During their visit at Satis house, Pip learns that he is to be apprenticed to Joe. This temporarily shatters his expectations of becoming educated as a gentleman and he is extremely saddened to know he is to be a mere blacksmith. Once apprenticed to Joe Pip’s snobbery is frightful.
