Phillip Pirip, nicknamed Pip, is the main character in this novel about ambition, conscience, and self-improvement. Pip's torturous development to maturity and happiness begins when, as an orphan, he is being raised by a hateful sister and her good husband (Joe). Two early events pave the way for six-year-old Pipa's future to play out: He helps an escaped convict (Magwich) and he is befriended by a rich, eccentric old woman (Miss Havisham) and her adopted daughter (Estella).
