Estella has returned to Satis House and that she wishes to see Pip. Pip suddenly feels more kindly toward Joe, but
the blacksmith leaves before Pip can improve his behavior.

“Pip, dear old chap, life is made of ever so many partings welded together, as I may say, and one man’s a
blacksmith, and one’s a whitesmith, and one’s a goldsmith, and one’s a coppersmith. Diwisions among such must
come. . . .”

(See Important Quotations Explained)
Summary: Chapter 28
Hoping to see Estella and to apologize to Joe, Pip travels home, forced to share a coach with a pair of convicts,
one of whom is the mysterious stranger who gave Pip money in the pub. Though this man does not recognize Pip,
Pip overhears him explaining that the convict Pip helped that long-ago night in the marshes had asked him to
deliver the money to Pip. Pip is so terrified by his memory of that night that he gets off the coach at its first stop
within the town limits. When he arrives at his hotel, he reads a notice in a newspaper, from which he learns that
Pumblechook is taking credit for his rise in status.
Summary: Chapter 29
When he travels to Satis House the next day, Pip pictures himself as a triumphant knight riding to rescue the Lady
Estella from an evil castle. He encounters Orlick, now Miss Havisham’s porter, at the gate. When he sees Estella,
he is stunned: she has become a ravishing young woman. Despite his newfound fortune, Pip feels horribly
inadequate around her, as unworthy and clumsy as ever. Miss Havisham goads him on, snapping at him to
continue to love Estella. Pip walks with Estella in the garden, but she treats him with indifference, and he
becomes upset. Pip realizes that she reminds him of someone, but he can’t place the resemblance. Back inside, he
discovers Jaggers there and feels oppressed by the lawyer’s heavy presence.
Summary: Chapter 30
The next day, Pip tells Jaggers about Orlick’s past, and Jaggers fires the man from Miss Havisham’s employ. Pip
is mocked by the tailor’s apprentice as he walks down the street. He returns in low spirits to London, where
Herbert tries to cheer him up, though he also tries to convince him that, even if Miss Havisham is his secret
benefactor, she does not intend for him to marry Estella. Herbert confesses to Pip that he, too, is in love and, in
fact, has a fiancée named Clara, but he is too poor to marry her.
Summary: Chapter 31
Pip and Herbert go to the theater, where Wopsle plays a ridiculous Hamlet. Pip takes the hapless actor out to
dinner following the play, but his mood remains sour.
Summary: Chapter 32
Pip receives a note from Estella, ordering him to meet her at a London train station. He arrives very early and
encounters Wemmick, who takes him on a brief tour of the miserable grounds of Newgate Prison. Pip feels
uncomfortable in the dismal surroundings, but Wemmick is oddly at home, even introducing Pip to a man who
has been sentenced to death by hanging.

Summary: Chapter 33

When Pip meets Estella, he is again troubled by her resemblance to someone he can’t place. She treats Pip
arrogantly, but sends him into ecstatic joy when she refers to their “instructions,” which makes him feel as though
they are destined to be married. After he escorts her through the gaslit London night to the house at which she is
staying, he returns to the Pockets’ home.
Summary: Chapter 34
Pip feels terribly guilty for his snobbish treatment of Joe and Biddy, and he feels as though his degenerate
lifestyle has been a bad influence on Herbert. The two young men catalog their debts, but they are interrupted by
a letter carrying the news that Mrs. Joe has died.
Summary: Chapter 35
Pip is surprised by the intensity of his sadness about his sister’s death. He returns home at once for the funeral. He
meets Pumblechook, who continues to fawn over him irritatingly. He tries to mend his relations with Joe and
