How Is Miss Havisham A Dynamic Character

416 Words2 Pages defines a dynamic character as “a literary or dramatic character who undergoes an important innerchange, as a change in personality or attitude.” Miss Havisham is an ideal example of a dynamic character. In “Great Expectations” Charles Dickens uses Miss Havisham’s actions to convey the growth she has throughout the story as a dynamic character. At the start of the novel, Miss Havisham is filled with bitterness and hatred. Her hatred is portrayed numerous times throughout part one. For example, Estella informs Miss Havisham that Pip is a common-labouring boy so she shall not love him and Miss Havisham responds by saying "Well? You can break his heart” (Dickens 62). Miss Havisham has no problem telling Estella to break Pip’s heart.
