Amy and Miss Havisham
Miss Havisham is a significant character in the Charles Dickens novel "Great Expectations". She is a wealthy spinster who lives in her ruined mansion, Satis House, with her adopted daughter, Estella. Miss Havisham's father was a wealthy brewer and her mother had died shortly after she was born. He married again in secret and conceived a son, Arthur, with the family cook, but Miss Havisham's relationship with her brother was far from harmonious.
As an adult, she inherited most of her father's fortune and fell in love with a man named Compeyson, who had conspired with the jealous Arthur to swindle her of her riches. Her cousin Matthew Pocket warned her to be careful, but she was too much in love to listen. On the wedding day, while she was dressing, Miss Havisham received a letter from Compeyson and realised he had defrauded her and she had been left at the altar.Humiliated and heartbroken, Miss Havisham suffered a mental breakdown and remained alone in her decaying mansion Satis House – never removing her wedding dress, wearing only one shoe, leaving the wedding breakfast and cake uneaten on the table, and allowing only a few people to see her. She even had the clocks in her mansion stopped at twenty minutes to nine: the exact time when she had received Compeyson's letter.
