Title:
Circulation and Stasis: Feminine Property in the Novels of Charles Dickens
Authors:
Wynne, Deborah
Abstract:
This chapter explores the figure of Miss Havisham, and other female characters, in Charles Dickens's Great Expectations (1860). It argues that the novel's exploration of portable property, usually discussed in terms of Wemmick, is particularly focused on the museal qualities of Miss Havisham's Satis House and the objects it contains.
