Great Expectations
Chapter XXXIII
1. Why has Estella come to London? 2. Why is Pip so full of misery after seeing her?
Vocabulary: “Moses in the bulrushes" is certainly a humorous way of describing the small quantity of butter in relationship to the surrounding parsely. In the Old Testament, Pharaoh's daughter discovers the infant Moses in a basket by the margin of the Nile River (Exodus II: 3-6).

      Chapter XXXIV
1. Why does Pip's life in London make things difficult for Herbert? 2. What Club did they join? What is the narrator's attitude towards this club?
Covent Garden = at the time, a disreputable part of London frequented at night by prostitutes.
Chapter XXXV
1. How does Mrs. Joe's death affect Pip? 2. Why does her death not bring Pip and Joe any closer together?
Vocabulary: “Mummery" is suggestive of play-acting, namely that the Victorian mourning rituals accompanying Mrs. Joe's funeral are farcical.
Chapter XXXVI
1. How do Pip's fortunes improve on his twenty-first birthday? 2. What does Pip still not find out?
