Annotated quotes organised by theme for Module B: Close Study of Literature on Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. Themes include nihilistic existentialism (especially with regards to Gothicism), feminist critical theory (with reference to Estella and Miss Havisham, as well as subversion of the fairytale genre), Pip and his foils, the light motif, social satire (the pretentiousness of the rich upper-class) and the caricaturisation of characters.
