If Charles Dickens would have written a book called Being a true gentleman for semi-smart lower class boys with girls they need to impress and Pip had read it this would have made his life much easier Then maybe he couldve realized the true virtues that make a gentleman and this book wouldnt have been written and English classes all over the globe could have read something less grueling Sadly for some this didnt happen and Dickens had to write this moral-teaching novel about true gentlemaness A true gentleman as Dickens would say would be a person who is compassionate and works hard in life At the end of the novel Pip without any doubt becomes a gentleman One trait that Dickens sees a true gentleman to have would be he would be a hard worker Initially Pip feels ashamed to associate himself with Joe who is just a commoner but later he realizes that hard work brings a great deal of honor to a man Joe is a perfect example of a true gentleman His hard labor and strong work ethics cause him to be this even though he may not have the proper etiquette When Pip inherits Magwitchs fortune and is training to be a gentleman he doesnt labor very hard at all and this causes him to not achieve accurate gentleman status even though he is in his special training and has a great amount of cash A true gentleman in Dickens eyes would also be compassionate and loving Joe can also help argue this point Joe had always been kind and caring no matter what pain Pip caused him For example even though Pip is horrid to Joe after he inherits his money Joe still comes to his side to care for Pip when he is sick in bed A true gentleman has an unconditional love for those close to him exactly like the love Joe had for Pip
