Throughout Great Expectations, Pip is constantly feeling guilty of everything, even though he does not always deserve to feel this way. Pip’s older sister, Mrs. Joe Gargery, causes Pip to have the feeling of guilt throughout his childhood and adulthood the most. As bad as it sounds, Mrs. Joe actually makes Pip feel guilty for being alive. Pip tells us this when he says, “I was always treated as if I had insisted on being born in opposition to the dictates of reason, religion, and morality, and against the dissuading arguments of my best friends.”(Dickens 22) I don’t think that it is fair for Pip to feel guilt for living at such a young age. He doesn’t know any better and could possibly end up doing something really bad because of this feeling.

He saw it was cheap and couldn’t resist getting it, ignoring the fact that a horse is not a standard house pet let alone a retarded one. If Peter was stuck in a psychosexual stage it would be the phallic stage. This is because in an episode peter realizes that his son has larger genitals than he does. From this he soon becomes obsessed trying to use material things to show that he is still manly. In numerous episodes Peter reverts to acting as a child like the episode when Tom Tucker starts to date Peter’s mother, Peter begins to act like a child when Tucker doesn’t allow peter to get ice cream before he finishes dinner.
Paul is so sick of these voices that he wants to prove his mother wrong. Paul says to his mother that he has luck and the mother then just begins to laugh at him. Paul now set out to prove his mother wrong by showing that he does have luck and he hopes that the voices in the house would stop talking and saying “There must be more money”(p267, Para, 5).

Lawrence is found with pockets full of money and he tells the town who the other boy was with him. Lazy Lawrence teaches children important life lessons that will help them in the future.

This then incites pity and fear into the audience. The audience can feel the pain of Buck’s breakup and they could relate. Maizey and Miles are soon attached to Uncle Buck, but the eldest daughter Tia cannot stand to know she is even related to Uncle Buck in the beginning of the movie. Uncle Buck and Tia resemble the tragic heroes in the movie. A tragic hero is a “great man who is neither a paragon of virtue and justice nor undergoes the change to misfortune through any real badness or wickedness but because of some mistake.” Tia bullied her parents seeming superior to everyone getting her way with everything, but when Uncle
