Great Expectations is one of Dickens's best-loved novels and, say some critics, his greatest. Covering the story of one man's life--with many autobiographical elements--it tackles big question of identity while mustering a cast of unforgettable characters, chief amongst them Miss Havisham and Joe Gargery.
