“You must know that I have no heart. Oh! I have a heart to be stabbed in or shot in, I have no doubt and, of course, and if it ceased to beat I should cease to be. But you know what I mean. I have no softness there. No sympathy, sentiment, nonsense. I am serious; I have no bestowed my tenderness anywhere. I have never had any of such things.”- Estella Havisham. The girl who had won Philip Pirrip’s heart; the insulting girl who had treated Philip Pirrip badly; the girl who was taught to torment men and break their hearts at the age of three.

Picture this: a woman is getting arrested for shoplifting at the local Giant. As the cops take her away, a cluster of onlookers begins to form. Sure, they don’t know the story, but one thing for certain is that she really wanted that milk. She knows the story, however: that her husband just left her, leaving two kids and herself without a source of money. The conflict is that she shoplifted, so she committed a crime. According to local law enforcement, the woman should be punished, although understanding her hardship may make a judge deem otherwise. In many situations, one will find that there isn’t always an extreme left or right leaving the correct path as ambiguous. In Charles Dickens’ novel Great Expectations moral ambiguity is expressed through his characters. The main character Pip and his expectations leave him hoping for a better life and craving a higher social class, which causes his actions to fluctuate between helping people and taking his frustrations out on others. In addition, Miss Havisham, a woman with a broken heart tries to save her adopted daughter Estella from receiving a broken heart. Through her attempts she replaces her daughter’s heart with ice and breaks young men’s hearts. In Dickens’ bildungsroman Great Expectations, Pip and Miss Havisham’s morally ambiguous characterization helps develop the theme, that one needs to learn to be resilient.
In Great Expectations, Charles Dickens tells the story in the perspective of a young boy growing up in England during the Victorian Era. Philip “Pip” Pirrip is the protagonist, where we discover his life experiences and expectations through his narration. Pip’s sister, Mrs. Joe, and her husband, Mr. Joe, greatly influence his childhood. He meets many people later on who teaches him that not everyone will be happy and what it really means to have “great expectations”. Through Pip’s journey, Dickens suggests that happiness becomes achievable if one learns to accept and fix their flaws.
Everyone in the world at one point of time, has changed themselves to fit in with a niche, to be similar to the one you love, or for some other reason. Many unlucky people in the world have faced one-way love, or love that is not reciprocated, and have been influenced by it, much like Pip was. Chances are that, just like Pip they continued pinning for their partner because of the dopamine they get when they are with them. However, it is important to remember that you decide your life and your story. If you want something deeply, you can get it. In that way, it is possible to get a happy ending even after experiencing something similar to what Pip felt. In the end, Pip became friends with Estella, even after knowing that she was the cause for his change which lead to all his misery in life. A moral theme that was taught in Great Expectations is to not change yourself for anyone or any reason. It is important to always keep your individuality and not to be susceptible to being swayed by someone. Overall, everyone should be their own individual person and not change for
Many literary works have love as a theme. By reading different novels, one receives a glimpse of all the different kinds of love and their purposes. In Their Eyes Were Watching God, love is represented as the sea. By reading this novel, the reader comes to the conclusion that our capability to love deviates with every person we come across. Love is in some ways an art, and it transforms as people transform. Janie Crawford, perhaps one of the greatest love philosophers and protagonist, says, “Love ain’t somethin’ lak uh grindstone dat’s de same thing everywhere and do de same thing tuh everything it touch. Love is lak de sea. It’s uh movin’ thing, but still and all, it takes its shape from de shore it meets, and it’s different with every shore”
