Mr Pip Revision Notes

My school chose to do Mr Pip as the book to study for English Literature Unit 1 Section B. I found it really hard as there aren't many revision notes online for this book (everyone always seems to do Of Mice and Men).

I made my own notes from reading the book and put them under categories which I thought might come up in the exam (e.g. attitudes to outside world, Mr Watts, conflict, context etc.)

I thought this might be useful for anyone else studying it in the future!
