1.From the biography, what incident changed Dickens' life and helped to shape him as a writer? I think it was his family losing money, his father going to the debtor's prison Marshalsea, his family having to move in with the father at the prison, and Charles' working at 12 to help his family. He worked in a factory and it was an undesirable position in an awful place. 2.How old do you think Pip is? Pip is a young boy between the age of 9 and 11 3.Quote the specific language in the selection that leads you to this conclusion. The quotes that lead me to that conclusion were: “…my infant tongues could make of both names nothing longer or more explicit than pip” “…I drew a childish conclusion that my mother was freckled and sickly.” These two quotes allowed me to assume pip’s age. 4.Reread the sentence highlighted in orange. Notice the intense descriptive language Dickens uses. What do you think is the author's purpose for including such an extraordinarily long descriptive sentence?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
