《孤星血淚》(又譯:遠大前程)(Great Expectations)常被歸為是「成長小說」,是維多利亞時代風行的小說形式,這類小說呈現角色在成長過程中的心理與道德發展歷程。不過,一如狄更斯(Charles Dickens)的大多數小說一樣,《孤星血淚》也無法輕易地被定義歸類,因為這是一個愛與激情的故事,也是一個懸疑故事,還是一部反應當時社會的小說。

Great Expectations is usually described as a bildungsroman, a type of novel that was popular in Victorian times. Bildungsroman is a German word used for novels that show the psychological and moral development of the main character as he or she grows up. However, Great Expectations, like most of Charles Dickens’s novels, cannot be so easily defined. It is also a story about love and passion, a mystery story, and a story that comments on the society of the time.
Great Expectations is set on the marshes of Kent and in London in the early to mid-1800s. The main character is a poor orphan boy called Pip, who lives with his older sister and her husband, Joe. One day he meets and falls in love with a rich girl called Estella. She laughs at him because he is a poor village boy and he starts to become unhappy with his life.
A few years later he learns that he has a secret benefactor, who wants him to live the life of a gentleman. Now that he is rich, he thinks that he has a chance of winning Estella’s love. He leaves his village and goes to live in London, where he makes new friends. He starts to feel ashamed of his home and his family, particularly Joe, who he treats unkindly. However, after many adventures he is finally able to recognize his mistakes.
Charles Dickens originally wrote a sad ending for Great Expectations but he decided to change it to a happier one because of a suggestion from one of his friends. Most books today contain the new ending but there are some that also include the original one.

Charles Dickens

查理斯.狄更斯(Charles Dickens, 1812-1870)為英國維多利亞時期的大文豪,作品普受世人的歡迎,且對英國文學的發展有著深遠的影響,是19世紀英國寫實主義文學的主要代表。 在狄更斯年少時,父親曾因債入獄,致使狄更斯被送去當學徒,這段經歷讓他備嚐艱辛與屈辱。但也因為這樣的經歷,狄更斯擅長於描繪英國中下階層的社會,深刻反映出複雜的社會現實。狄更斯位於西敏寺的墓誌銘,適足傳達此一精神特色,其寫著: He was a sympathiser with the poor, the suffering, and the oppressed; and by his death, one of England's greatest writers is lost to the world. 他的心,與窮人、受苦的人和被壓迫者同在; 他的謝世,令世界失去了一位偉大的英國作家。 狄更斯勤於筆耕,著作等身。其代表作包括《孤雛淚》(Oliver Twist)、《小氣財神》(A Christmas Carol)、自傳性題材的《塊肉餘生錄》(David Copperfield)、《艱難時世》(Hard Times)、《雙城記》(A Tale of Two Cities)、《遠大前程》(Great Expectations)等。1870年,狄更斯不幸病逝,享年58歲。 Charles Dickens (1812-1870) was the most famous English novelist of the Victorian era, and his tales are still popular today and form an important part of English literature. Dickens spent his life writing. His stories reflected his childhood and contributed to the social reform of 19th century Great Britain. His most famous novels are The Adventures of Oliver Twist, A Christmas Carol, David Copperfield, and A Tale of Two Cities.
