Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Overview... an elderly “lady” of the Victorian era. Miss Havisham lives in her mansion, Satis House, and entertains herself by living vicariously through Estella, a young orphan who Miss Havisham adopts and makes a project out of by deciding to turn Estella into a “lady” like herself. That often includes messing with the head of a young man named Pip.

Personality… mysterious and eccentric. Miss Havisham doesn’t like to explain herself. She would much rather confuse people and get a kick out of watching them ponder over her intentions. She never removes her wedding dress and doesn’t communicate with many people – only those she has chosen carefully.
