"Tag and Rag and Bobtail"--a mob or rabble wearing ragged clothes.
1. In what role does Pip see himself as he returned to Miss Havisham's?
2. In his feelings for Estella, how does Pip come to follow Miss Havisham's teaching?
3. Why does Pip not visit Joe?
Chapter XXX
1. How did Pip “get even with" Orlick?
2. How did Herbert's “love life" show a contrast with that of Pip?
3. Why does Pip refer to the codfish and barrel of oysters he sends to Joe as “penitential"?
4. Why does Herbert use the nick-name “Handel" for Pip?
5. Why does Herbert accuse Pip of “looking into our gift-horse's mouth with a magnifying glass"?
Vocabulary: “sour grapes" is an allusion to a fable by the Greek Aesop (c. 620-c. 560 BC) in which a fox consoles himself for a crow's unwillingness to help him obtain a bunch of grapes. The term indicates Herbert's wide reading, and suggests that he feels Pip is deluding himself about being intended for Estella.

1. How does Pip's night at the theater only increase his anxieties instead of easing them?
Chapter XXXII
1. Why does Dickens include a picture of Newgate Prison?
2. How does Estella appear to Pip in contrast to his visit to the prison?
