“Pause you who read this, and think for a moment of the long chain of iron or gold, of thorns or flowers, that would never have bound you, but for the formation of that first link on one memorable day.”
As Pip’s memories unfold, a world of hidden ties is revealed. The chains of unrequited love, of unforgotten hate and unanswered questions bind together Charles Dickens’ characters. In this retelling of the seminal novel, we follow Pip’s journey from a blacksmith’s workshop to the houses of the wealthy London elite. This vivid exploration of Pip’s consciousness, and the series of events which shaped it, captures all the emotion, mystery and drama of Dickens’ original tale.
“I have been bent and broken, but – I hope – into a better shape.”
