Hey everyone,
I'm working on a presentation at the moment about Great Expectations, and my topic is "Discuss how cultural values have been maintained and manipulated". So I'm looking at the original Charles Dickens text, and the 1998 movie.
I'd be SO grateful if anyone could tell me if they think I'm heading in the right direction with these values. I'm going to talk about:
Morality
A "true gentlemen"
The role of women
Social Criticism
Forgiveness

Do you think those are the main values of the text? Am I missing out anything particularly important. I'd be happy to give anyone else a hand in return with your questions as well.
Thanks a bunch!

I think what you have is pretty good. Maybe (and this is only a maybe-- a suggestion...) you can add Religion to the list? I got the impression while reading the first book of GE that a lot of religious allusions were used to emphasize Pip's guilt.
