About this Recording

DICKENS, C.: Great Expectations (Abridged)

In this, perhaps Dickens’ most profound and personal novel, we are invited to share in the sentimental education of Pip, the poor boy from the village forge who risks losing himself in snobbery and selfishness when he mysteriously inherits a fortune. The story moves from the bleak Kentish marshes of Pip’s childhood to a thrilling climax which mingles tragedy and triumph.
