However, when faced with the truth, he retreats into his flashbacks and delusions so he does not feel the pain from disappointment. For this assignment, I created a mini photo album with scrapbook paper and toilet paper rolls.

Although not properly educated, Joe always seems to lead Pip through life and shows him the right path. “He was a mild, good-natured, sweet-tempered, easy-going, foolish, dear fellow - a sort of Hercules in strength, and also in weakness.” (Dickens, pp. 6) This is how the narrator, Pip, describes Joe Gargery, a humble man who is very fond of Pip, like a father is of a son.
