Sažetak
The article discusses the theme of acquisition and circulation of capital in Charles
Dickens’s novel Great Expectations. The analysis proceeds from an observation that
the novel is not centrally concerned with representing the processes of production of
wealth, as it is about the circulation of social and economic capital. The protagonist
of the novel entertains a specific notion of social mobility (his great expectations),
which he eventually renounces, and develops a common middle-class idea of the
centrality of hard work to the accumulation of wealth. However, by examining the
construction of the protagonist’s relationship to wealth, as well as the construction of
the circulation of wealth in the narrative, the article suggests that the novel questions
its declarative ideology by placing a great deal of emphasis on the various ways in
which transfers of money enable the creation of social and economic capital for the
characters in the novel.
