Great Expectations is full of extreme imagery - poverty; prison ships and chains, and fights to the death - and has a colourful cast of characters who have entered popular culture. These include the eccentric Miss Havisham, the beautiful but cold Estella, and Joe, the kind and generous blacksmith.

Great Expectations is popular both with readers and literary critics, and has been translated into many languages, and adapted numerous times into various media. It is Dickens's second novel, after David Copperfield, to be fully narrated in the first person. Upon its release, the novel received near universal acclaim. George Bernard Shaw praised the novel, as "All of one piece and consistently truthfull." This cloth-bound book includes a Victorian inspired dust-jacket, and is limited to 100 copies.
