Great Expectations pt 2 By: Savannah Horacek

People underestimate the people of a lower class, expecting them to have to rely on higher class.

Possible motifs in this book could be greediness, love, and pride.

"Hear me out--- but if I were to remove Joe into a higher sphere, as I shall hope to remove him when I fully come into my property, they would hardly do him justice" (116). Pip, even though he was not quite a gentlemen, believed Joe wasn't happy and that he would want to become part of a higher class.

With my heart beating like a heavy hammer of disordered action, I rose out of my chair, and stood with my hand upon the back of it, looking wildly at him (250). Pip was taken aback by the fact that the Convict had been his benefactor this whole time.

"Oh no, no, no," I returned, " never, never!" (251). He didn't believe it could be someone of a lower class providing for him.
