Art Expectations Day 306 – 100 Doors

306 GreatExp 100 doors 150

[Day 306, Page 328]   The man Wopsle saw in the audience at the theatre seated behind Pip was Compeyson, the convict Magwitch was beating up in the ditch way back when Pip was a child. He is the very one who jilted Miss Havisham at the altar, leaving her heart-broken and wallet-broken. Pip tries to act surprised when Wopsle tells Pip who the man was. Inwardly, he felt as if he “had shut an avenue of a hundred doors to keep him out, and then found him at his (my) elbow.” Pip gets back home at The Temple between midnight and 1:00 am. He saw no one following him. He tells Herbert about Compeyson and the theatre. He then writes to Wemmick with the news and reminding him that they still await instructions from him.
