    The novel begins in the marsh village the place of Pip’s origin. Most of its inhabitants are blue collard types that are hard working and humble. After a hard days work the townspeople usually gather at a local pub called “The Three Jolly Bargemen.” The town is home to a majority of the middle class people. This is where Mrs. Havisham makes her home; she is a typical example of the type of people in her town. The people of the town did not work as hard as the marsh villagers but they made more money. London was highly romanticized by Pip. Even though it appeared to be glamorous it was in fact filled with scoundrels and beggars.

    Sympathy is primarily experienced at the beginning of the novel. In the first stage of Pips life, Pip is portrayed as a very naive individual, whose goals in life are humble and who is mistreated on many levels. The opening scene of the novel sets the stage for Pips childhood as he is introduced to the reader as an orphan, all alone in a misty graveyard, who is confronted by a frightful convict. Thus, in the first chapter affection and compassion towards Pip is first encouraged

    Hope I answered your question...
