Great Expectation

《远大前程》

 

 

 

 

Great Expectations is a novel by Charles Dickens first serialised in All the Year Round from 1 December 1860 to August 1861. It is regarded as one of his greatest and most sophisticated novels, and is one of his most enduringly popular novels; having been adapted for stage and screen over 250 times.

 

Great Expectations is written in the genre of "bildungsroman" or the style of book that follows the story of a man or woman in their quest for maturity, usually starting from childhood and ending in the main character's eventual adulthood. Great Expectations is the story of the orphan Pip, writing his life from his early days of childhood until adulthood and trying to be a gentleman along the way. The story can also be considered semi-autobiographical of Dickens, like much of his work, drawing on his experiences of life and people.

 

The action of the story takes place from Christmas Eve, 1812, when the protagonist is about seven years old (and which happens to be the year of Dickens' birth), to the winter of 1840.

 

Each instalment in All the Year Round contained two chapters and was written in a way that kept readers interested from week to week, while still satisfying their curiosity at the end of each one.

 

Its first appearance in volume form was as three-volume novel, without illustrations, in July 1861.

 

《远大前程》是狄更斯最成熟的代表作品之一。小说叙述了一个青年幻想破灭的故事。金钱使皮普从一个穷学徒变成阔少爷,也使他染上了上流社会的恶习,而背离了他原有的劳动人民的纯朴天性。没有了金钱,皮普两手空空地回到家乡,则恢复了自己的人性。狄更斯以他独特的方式,处理19世纪文学中具有普遍意义的青年人的生活道路的主题,突出了对金钱腐蚀作用的揭露。
