I am doing a talk in English on Great expectations.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me how Great Expectations reflects on Charles Dickens himself?

It would be useful to include in my talk, I was hoping for anything.

Was it an allegory of his life
Do the characters relate to people he has met?
Did these experiences happen to him
ect. ect.

Anything would be helpful!

oh and by the way

HI :)
