Lloyd Jones' new novel is set mainly in a small village on Bougainville, a country torn apart by civil war. Matilda attends the school set up by Mr Watts, the only white man on the island. By his own admission he's not much of a teacher and proceeds to educate the children by reading them Great Expectations. Matilda falls in love with the novel, strongly identifying with Pip. The promise of the next chapter is what keeps her going; Pip's story protects her from the horror of what is happening around her - helicopters menacing the skies above the village and rebel raids on the ground. When the rebels visit the village searching for any remaining men to join their cause, they discover the name Pip written in the sand and instigate a search for him. When Pip can't be found the soldiers destroy the book. Mr Watts then encourages the children to retell the story from their memories. Then when the rebels invade the village, the teacher tells them a story which lasts seven nights, about a boy named Pip, and a convict . . .

Seminar paper from the year 2018 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Wuppertal, language: English, abstract: This paper will deal with the intertextuality in Lloyd Jones’ novel “Mister Pip” and the intermediality in the movie adaptation “Mr. Pip” by Andrew Adamson. Both use Charles Dickens’ novel “Great Expectations” as a reference. The paper will analyse this intertextuality and intermediality in order to find out which function the reference to “Great Expectation” take up in both media. So it can be measured whether the occurrence of Dickens’ novel can be seen as a means of appropriation or writing-back. Therefore, the terms of intertextuality, intermediality, appropriation and writing-back will be explained at first so they can be applied to first the novel “Mister Pip” and following the movie “Mr. Pip” afterwards. At the end it will be stated what function the intertextuality/intermediality takes up in novel and movie and if these are means of appropriation or writing-back.

Seminar paper from the year 2020 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, University of Göttingen, language: English, abstract: First, the effects of narration in Matilda’s childhood, mainly when Mr Watts reads the novel to the children in the classroom and she gets to know Pip, will be examined. The matters focussed on will be the way Matilda constantly compares herself to Pip, the protagonist of Dickens’ Great Expectations, as well as how the embedding of the novel into her life influences the relationship she has to her parents and the way the impact of the novel changes when she becomes an adult will be analyzed. Here Matilda’s efforts to define the concept of home and how her development in general is dependent on her engagement with Dickens and his work will be looked at. In a third part, now connecting the young girl on the island and the grown-up woman, an analysis on how Matilda utilises Great Expectations throughout her life in order to first try to protect herself from trauma and later on how she tries to heal her trauma, particularly by writing an autobiographical account of her life, will follow.

"The ground-breaking New Zealand fiction of the last fifteen years has not attracted critical commentary beyond initial reviews, despite its success with readers both local and international, and despite its attracting major awards both local and international. Floating Worlds contains stimulating and insightful essays on eight of the best novels of recent years. These are novels in which there is no longer one authoritative way to tell a story. In contrast to Allen Curnows stricture that New Zealand writers should conform to the disciplines of an uncompromising fidelity to experience, of an unqualified responsibility to the truths of themselves, in this place and that time, these novels invite us into what Paula Morris calls a floating world, where identities are negotiable and performative. Floating Worlds illuminates the distinctive ways in which contemporary New Zealand writing approaches the relationship between the real and the imaginary, and the different kinds of challenging, edgy authenticities that operate in the space between them: the familiar and the foreign; the copy and the original; the fake and the genuine; the intention and the act, including the act of writing."--Publisher's website.
