Great Expectations: Symbols
The symbols in Great Expectations are used to reflect the detail and description of the characters within the novel. Pip's ambition is reflected in the grandeur of Satis House but his heart, although he does not realise this at the start of our story, belongs to the forge which, after the death of Mrs Joe, he finally recognises as a symbol of friendship and warmth. The bleak and dismal marshes where Pip's most important experience happens - his meeting with an escaped convict - connects Pip with nature, as well as connecting him with Magwitch and the themes of crime and guilt.
