Great Expectations (SparkNotes Literature Guide Series)
Though she never knows it herself, Pip finally finds out where Estella comes from. She was the child of Jaggers's maidservant Molly, a gypsy at that time, and Abel Magwitch .
Unanswered Questions — The Environmental Protection Agency hosted a meeting for crop protection company representatives, state government officials, academia and other stakeholders to discuss dicamba this past Wednesday. North Dakota State University Extension pesticide program specialist Andrew Thostenson was part of this meeting, noting the EPA is reviewing the 2017 use of dicamba and preparing for 2018. “They have a looming deadline coming. 2018 will be a critical year, because if we have issues that even remotely approximate what we saw in 2017, I really think this technology is at risk.” How will success be defined in 2018? Thostenson says no one knows that exact answer right now. “I asked if we have 50 percent of the number of problems in 2018 than 2017 is that success? Or if we have 75 percent fewer complaints? What is success here? No one could take a guess at it. Even in North Dakota, we’re looking at it and asking that question. We don’t have any good answers to that right now.”
Now, this political tension though, is also fueled by religious ideas and expectations. And here again, Jerusalem and the Temple seem at times to be a kind of focal point of their ideas.
Great Expectations is considered one of the most balanced of Dickens' novels. The Great Expectations e-text contains the full text of Great Expectations.
This is not to say that you can't explore real issues in non-real SF and even fantasy. Or even real SF issues. Some great SF has done this entirely through allegory. Some SF is written not to be about the future at all, but the present, and simply uses an unrealistic future to tell a message about the present. That future need not be possible to deliver that message. But there is no denying that it helps.
