Now and Then


 You could hear the coach shouting c’mon boys lets take a picture in a happy, nasty way. We all got together and slowly Walked to the scoring, green fence. Where we then lined up as if we were in the army getting ready for our next mission. He took the picture and I remember it making me feel worse. We slowly came off the fence and sat down in agony. You could hear the shouting at us asking us questions. If we thought the team was better than us, how do you think you lot played, whats was going on out there and whats your match ratings.

He said to me so Ramone how do you think you played today. I replied “I don’t know coach you tell me”, in an stroppy way. He than said well I’ll tell you how you played.” To be fair you played alright today, even though we lost. Out of the whole team you played alright. I then looked up at him and felt delighted to know that I didn’t play as bad as the others in my team. I was sitting down on the floor wondering about why my coach didn’t think I played bad, whilst I could hear one of my teammates being pressured to tell my coach how he thought he played. The boy stuttered. He had no words to describe how bad he played. He froze in

Quotes from great expectation

Chapter 1

Chapter 2

“It is a part of Miss Havisham’s plans for me, Pip,” said Estella, with a sigh, as if she were tired; “I am to write to her constantly and see her regularly, and report how I go on-I and the jewels—for they’re nearly all mine now.” It is Pips first time at Miss Harvisham’s and Estella has been told what he needs to do.

Chapter 3

“Well,” said he, “I believe you. You’d be but a fierce young hound indeed, if at your time of life you could help to hunt a wretched warmint, hunted as near death and dunghill as this poor wretched warmint is!” Pip has given the convict the file so he is able to escape and he has to lie to Joe.

Chapter 4

Chapter 5

My convict looked round him for the first time, and saw me . . . I looked at him eagerly when he looked at me, and slightly moved my hands and shook my head. I had been waiting for him to see me, that I might try to assure him of my innocence.

Significant quotes

Quote 1

“Look’ee here, Pip. I’m your second father. You’re my son,—more to me nor any son. I’ve put away money, only for you to spend.”

“I am what you have made me. Take all the praise, take all the blame; take all the success, take all the failure; in short, take.”

Quote 4

“Miss Havisham’s intentions towards me, all a mere dream; Estella not designed for me; I only suffered in Satis House as a convenience, a sting for the greedy relations, a model with a mechanical heart to practise on when no other practice was at hand; those were the first smarts I had.”

Quote 5

“First,” said Mr. Jaggers, “you should have some new clothes to come in, and they should not be working clothes. Say this day week. You’ll want some money. Shall I leave you twenty guineas?”

He’d no more heart than a iron file, he was as cold as death, and he had the head of the devil afore mentioned.

Meaning of simile

Pip says Compeyson is as cold as death. When people die their bodies go cold, Pip is trying to say that Compeyson is near to dying.
