Pips First Expectation Timeline Pip Encounters Magwitch, the convict in the
graveyard. The first major event that happens in the novel to Pip was him encountering Magwitch in the graveyard. Pip was visiting his family, of which almost all had died when Magwitch came and threatened Pip and forced him to bring him a file for him to free himslef from chains. Although Pip and the reader do not know it at the time, this event will transfom Pip's entire life. Pip goes to Miss Havisham's house and meets her and Estella Pip is invited by Miss Havisham to come "play" at her house. Mrs. Joe and Uncle Pumblechook take it as an opporunity for Pip to make money and rise in status so they force Pip to go. Pip is glad to go and while there learns alot about Miss Havisham and about becoming a gentleman. He also meets Estella. His trips to Miss Havisham continue. This is a very important part of the story because it helps to shape Pip's first "great" expectation for himself which is for him to become a high class gentleman. Pip becomes Joe's apprentice Miss Havisham gives Pip a little bit of money and sends him off to go work with Joe as an aprentice blacksmith dismissing him from her house. This is an important event in the book because Pip realizes that Miss Havisham had no real intentions of helping him become a gentleman and her and Estella were just playing with his mind. Also, he can't see the appreciation for Joe that he used to have and just see's him as a low class blacksmith. Pip continues to live his life as an aprentice Pip continues to live unhappily in his old home as an aprentice for Joe. Uncle Pumplechook and Mrs. Joe are upset that Miss Havisham did not give Pip more money. Pip tries to continue his education with Biddy. Pip, at this time, does not appreciate Biddy because she is low class and normal. Pip also meets Joe's worker, Orlick, who is threatend by Pip for the fear that Pip will replace him at the forge. This time in Pip's life shows how his expecation for himself to become a gentleman and be high class is being slowly crushed down. Pip is losing hope. Pip came home at night to find that Mrs. Joe was attacked and appeared to have serious brain damage. The reader learns later in the novel that Orlick was the attacker. This event shows Orlick's perosnality which is filled with jealousy for Pip because of Biddy, hatred, and pure evil and animosity towards Mrs. Joe because of their differences. Jaggers comes to tell Pip that an annonymous person, who the reader later finds out to be Magwitch, has given Pip a large sum of money becoming his benefactor. Pip believes this person to be Miss Havisham at the time but will learn later. Pip uses the money to buy himself a new wardrobe to fit his new position in life. Jaggers brings Pip to London where he will work and beocme a gentleman. Pip says goodbye to Joe, Biddy, Mrs. Joe, and Miss Havisham. This is a very important time in Pips life in regard to his first expectation for himself because he is finally starting to become what he has always dreamed of being.

Throughout Pip's second expectation he takes major steps to help himself become the gentleman that he aspires to become. Pip is introduced to many new people along the way that will help him in his journey. While striving to become a gentleman Pip acts rudely towards Joe, not wanting him to get in the way of his social status. Pip finds himself in a bad situation. He has forgotten about his old life with Joe and Biddy and become what he thought was a gentleman. Throughout the novel, the main character, Pip, developes many different "great" expectations for himself. These expectations that Pip sets for himself establish the plot of the book and define the characters for who they are. Pip began wishing only to be like a Joe, a blacksmith. Once he was introduced to the life of Miss Havisham he began aspiring to become a "gentleman". In his next expectation for himself he has become a gentleman and is disastified with himself because he has forgotten about his past. In his final "great" expectation, Pip is falling from his place as gentleman as he realizes that social class does not matter and finds that the only real expectation he has for himself is to become a morally good and honest person. This lesson is ironically what Joe had been teaching him all along. This last expectation is his state of redemption. One night Pip encounters the convict that he saw in the marshes as a child, Magwitch. Pip finds out that the convict is his benafactor, not Miss Havisham who he thought was his benafactor all along.
