Pip and Great Expectations book, along with Herbert and another friend, Startop, make a gallant attempt to help Magwitch escape, but instead he's captured--pointed out, in fact, by his old enemy Compeyson. Estella is beautiful, and Pip develops a strong crush on her, a crush that turns into love as he grows older. During his visit, he meets a beautiful young girl named Estella, who treats him coldly and contemptuously. In a way, it may be. The author is so engrossed with the objects before his mind, is so thoroughly in earnest, that he has fewer of those humorous caprices of expression of which formerly he was wont to wanton.
