From the Paper:

"'Great Expectations' by Charles Dickens, tells the story of Pip, an orphan Pip growing up in Smithfield in the seventeenth century. The novel opens with a frightening scene in which an escaped convict corners young Pip A fearful man, all in coarse grey, with a great iron on his leg. A man with no hat, and with broken shoes, and with an old rag tied round his head. A man who had been soaked in water, and smothered in mud, and lamed by stones, and cut by flints, and stung by nettles, and torn by briars; who limped, and shivered, and glared and growled; and whose teeth chattered in his head as he seized me by the chin.
