«Un alboroto viene y otro se va, Pip; así es la vida...»

 Esta es la historia de Pip, un joven huérfano y miedoso cuyo humilde destino se ve agraciado por un benefactor inesperado que cambiará el sino de su vida y hará de él un caballero. Grandes esperanzas es una maravillosa novela de aprendizaje, con una inolvidable galería de protagonistas que trazan un acabado retrato de época, y, al mismo tiempo, una honda reflexión sobre las constantes de la condición humana.

El catedrático emérito de la Universidad de Cambridge y eminente estudioso del mundo victoriano David Trotter firma la introducción que abre el volumen. La sigue la espléndida traducción de Jonio González, que acerca fielmente al lector a la que, para muchos, es la obra maestra de Charles Dickens. Vladimir Nabokov dijo... «Dickens es siempre profundo y sincero en su escritura.»

Introducción de DAVID TROTTER



'Great Expectations is up there for me with the world's greatest novels' Howard Jacobson. Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

Charles Dickens's Great Expectations charts the course of orphan Pip Pirrip's life as it is transformed by a vast, mysterious inheritance. A terrifying encounter with the escaped convict Abel Magwitch in a graveyard on the wild Kent marshes; a summons to meet the bitter, decrepit Miss Havisham and her beautiful, cold-hearted ward Estella at Satis House; the sudden generosity of a mysterious benefactor - these form a series of events that change the orphaned Pip's life forever, and he eagerly abandons his humble station as an apprentice to blacksmith Joe Gargery, beginning a new life as a gentleman. Charles Dickens's haunting late novel depicts Pip's education and development through adversity as he discovers the true nature of his identity, and his 'great expectations'. This definitive version uses the text from the first published edition of 1861. It includes a map of Kent in the early nineteenth century, and appendices on Dickens's original ending and his working notes, giving readers an illuminating glimpse into the mind of a great novelist at work.
