总是希望和周围的朋友攀比,这是人类的一大弱点。如果他们有钱,我们也希望有钱。如果他们很穷,那么我们也不在乎同样受穷。我们不会因为自己的愚蠢而羞愧,我们只会因为比周围的朋友更蠢才感到羞愧。这就是“人比人”的问题。

其实这里还有“往前看”的问题。我们无所谓错过什么,假如从未期待拥有。我们也不会因为贫穷而失望,既然我们不曾指望富有。 匹普又穷又没受过什么教育,但好在他的朋友们也都一样。对他们来说,这并没有什么;这就是生活的本来面目。然而,一旦匹普得知他有“远大前程”,他开始不再安分了。他羞于与自己的伙伴们为伍,他甚至还自惭形秽。他的“前程”显然有摧毁他的生活的“危险”。

The novel is set in Kent and London in the early to mid-19th century and contains some of Dickens' most memorable scenes, including the opening in a graveyard, where the young Pip is accosted by the escaped convict, Abel Magwitch. Great Expectations is full of extreme imagery —poverty, prison ships and chains, and fights to the death—and has a colourful cast of characters who have entered popular culture. These include the eccentric Miss Havisham, the beautiful but cold Estella, and Joe, the unsophisticated and kind blacksmith. Dickens's themes include wealth and poverty, love and rejection, and the eventual triumph of good over evil.

《远大前程》是狄更斯最成熟的作品之一,是他比较晚期的作品。狄更斯经历了丰富的人间生活后,对人,对周围环境,对自己的生活经历都有了深刻的认识,而所有他成熟的思想认识都汇总在《远大前程》一书中。这部作品原题名是Great Expectations,意思是指一笔遗产,中国把它译成“远大前程”。事实上,这个“远大前程”是带讽刺意义的,应该说这部作品的主题决非仅仅是写孤儿皮普想当上等人的理想幻灭的故事。这部作品还反映了狄更斯的哲学思想之一,即环境对人思想的影响:不同的环境可以造就成不同的人。

Great Expectations, Dickens's funny, frightening and tender portrayal of the orphan Pip's journey of self-discovery, is one of his best-loved works. Showing how a young man's life is transformed by a mysterious series of events—an encounter with an escaped prisoner; a visit to a black-hearted old woman and a beautiful girl; a fortune from a secret donor—Dickens's late novel is a masterpiece of psychological and moral truth, and Pip among his greatest creations.

查尔斯·狄更斯是英国最伟大的作家之一,他1812年出生于普茨茅斯,1870年去世。其作品广泛而深刻地描写这时期社会生活的各个方面,鲜明而生动地刻画了各阶层的代表人物形象,并从人道主义出发对各种丑恶的社会现象及其代表人物进行揭露批判,对劳动人民的苦难及其反抗斗争给以同情和支持。但同时他也宣扬以“仁爱”为中心的忍让宽恕和阶级调和思想。对劳动人民的反抗斗争抱行动上支持而道德上否定的矛盾态度。代表作主要有《雾都孤儿》、《远大前程》及《圣诞欢歌》。

Charles Dickens (7 February 1812 – 9 June 1870) was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's best-known fictional characters and is regarded by many as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. His works enjoyed unprecedented popularity during his lifetime, and by the twentieth century critics and scholars had recognised him as a literary genius. His novels and short stories enjoy lasting popularity. His most famous works are A Tale of Two Cities, Oliver Twist and Great Expectations.

我的教名叫菲利普,但是在我小时候,我仅会说匹普。因此,匹普就成了大家对我的称呼。我和姐姐住在埃森克斯的一个小村庄,姐姐比我大二十多岁,她与村里的铁匠乔?葛吉瑞结了婚。当我还是一个婴儿时,父母就离开了人间,所以我对他们根本没有什么印象,但是,我常常去离村庄大约一英里的教堂墓地,瞻仰墓碑上他们的名字。

My first name was Philip, but when I was a small child I could only manage to say Pip. So Pip was what everybody called me. I lived in a small village in Essex with my sister, who was over twenty years older than me, and married to Joe Gargery, the village blacksmith. My parents had died when I was a baby, so I could not remember them at all, but quite often I used to visit the churchyard, about a mile from the village, to look at their names on their gravestones.
