Pip goes through a number of emotions in the opening chapters 1-8 in great expectations

In these chapters, we see Pip growing up with his Uncle Joe and Mrs. Joe. Uncle Joe is a kind man, berated by Mrs. Joe who hates her life and begrudges living with a blacksmith. Pip then goes to see Miss Havisham, who as a member of the rich upper class should have more elegant manners. Yet, she is stuck on the day she was left at the altar and she loves inflicting pain on people such as Pip who is brought to Satis House to entertain Estella, her "neice." She glories in the fact that Estella is beautiful, but has been trained to break peoples' hearts with no feeling for anyone except herself. In many ways the emotions that should exist to show different social classes are lacking; these people are completely dysfunctional.
