'Your elth's your elth'
14 of 25
Pip about Joe - Joe is used as a reminder of what Pip could've become if he hadn't followed his dream of becoming a gentleman. This creates a strong contrast between the two characters.
He was a mild, good-natured, sweet-tempered, easy-going, foolish, dear fellow
15 of 25

Joe to Pip - Joe is keen for Pip to make his way in the world, this shows how kind Joe is as in becoming a gentleman Joe knows Pip will have to leave the forge but he still supports Pip's decisions
'If you can't get to being oncommon through going straight, you'll never get it through going crooked'
17 of 25
Estella to Pip - she knows she cannot love as she has been raised to hate. Dickens does this so that the reader doesn't despise Estella for being cruel, they understand her actions of malevolence and feel bad for her.

'I have been bent and broke but -I hope- into a better shape'

'Why he is a common labouring boy!'
23 of 25

'She was so much more beautiful'
