[the argument continues…. Pip’s gawking continues….] Miss Havisham tells Estella she wants her love. “You have it. All I possess is freely yours.” Estella goes on to say she cannot return love which was never received (from Miss H). Miss H is astonished, saying she gave only a “burning love” to her. Estella says she obeyed every lesson taught to her to a tee. She learned to be proud and hard – these were her lessons. But this has back-fired on the teacher, Miss H. She didn’t mean for Estella to be proud and hard to HER.
