Art Expectations 255 Caged

Pip in a Cage

The convict implies that he “owns” Pip, a brought-up (by him) London gentleman. (Who is the prisoner now?) He puts his weathered hand on Pip’s shoulder. Pip is still stunned by the news and by having this bit of his past standing here in his fancy London flat. The convict asks for a place to sleep. Pip offers him Herbert Pocket’s room, since he’s still away on business. The convict says they must be very careful though. Why? It appears that he is still a wanted man here in London, since he had escaped from prison before heading to America. At least something is finally happening! Wonder what’s next?
