Great Expectations PIPS PERSONALITY CHANGE Most people would assume that through age and maturation a boy with a wonderful heart and personality would further develop into a kind hearted considerate gentleman In Great Expectations Charles Dickens provides his readers with an example of a boy who regresses in certain aspects of his personality rather than progressing as one would expect Pip a person who had loved and revered his uncle Joe as a child while maturing finds that his perspective on life has shifted This boy beginning life with a caring generous heart regresses becoming a superficial ungrateful man who is ashamed of what he had once been Pip and Biddy had become the best of friends and felt very strongly towards each other However once Pip had been introduced to Estella he was overcome by her beauty and would never again be able to look at Biddy without feeling critical towards her Slowly after coming into contact with Estella Pip was becoming superficial as he was only interested in a girls appearance Thinking of Biddy Pip thought to himself She was not beautiful--She was common and could not be like Estella p 600 Estellas beauty had made Pip blind as to what was really important in a person No matter how coldly Pip was treated by Estella he went on loving her only because of her astounding beauty As Pip progressed in life he became increasingly ungrateful to the people that had raised and cared for him as a child His disrespect was most strongly shown towards Joe Having not seen Joe for a number of years Pip shows that he would rather have continued his now prosperous life without having anything to do with Joe when he thinks Let me confess with what feeling I looked forward to Joes coming Not with pleasure though I was bound to him by so many ties
