Great Expectations is really a coming of age story. It is essentially a bildungsroman where we watch Pip develop from boy to a man. As protagonist and narrator we see first hand how Pip changes. There are two Pips to observe through his journey. There is the Pip the narrator and Pip the character. THrough the narrator Pip we see a certain maturity and as a character we watch Pip fail often through immaturity. This reveals a steady maturation process through this very interesting dichotomy.
