Art Expectations 271 Faceless Man

271 GreatExp Know Man 150

{Day 271 Page 291}  Herbert and Pip scheme about what to do with Magwitch. I may be misunderstanding Dickens’ English, but it seems as if they wish him caught by the police and then hanged! (That would solve their problems. He is a wanted man, for crimes unknown.)  Pip says he would forever feel guilt about that though. They talk about how to get him out of England for good. Herbert suggests Pip should know Magwitch pretty well by now and have a solution as to what is best for him. But, even though most of Pip’s life, “his fortunes and misfortunes”, have been tightly bound with this man, he knows nothing about him, save for the two days in the swamp from his childhood.
