Great Expectations is a novel by Charles Dickens. It was first published in serial form in the publication All the Year Round from 1 December 1860 to August 1861. It has been adapted for stage and screen over 250 times. Great Expectations is written in the first person from the point of view of the orphan Pip. The novel, like much of Dickens's work, draws on his experiences of life and people.

作者狄更斯在经历了丰富的社会生活后,对人,对周围的环境以及对自己的经历都有了深刻的认识,而所有他成熟的思想都汇总在《远大前程》一书中。这部作品原题名是Great Expectations,意思是指一笔遗产,中国把它译成"远大前程"。这个译名给读者一种印象,即作品的主人公是有远大前程的。而事实上,这个"远大前程"是带讽刺意义的,应该说这部作品的主题决非仅仅是写孤儿皮普想当上等人的理想幻灭的故事,如果这样理解,就领会错了狄更斯创作这部作品的意义。皮普生活在姐姐家里,生活艰苦,他的理想是当一名像姐夫一样的铁匠,他没有想当上等人。后来他想当上等人是因为环境的改变。狄更斯的哲学思想之一是环境对人思想的影响。不同的环境可以造就成不同的人。皮普的整个发展过程是符合一般人性理论的。这部作品并非任意写出,而是以狄更斯以前的十多部作品为基础,是他思想的总结。狄更斯把自己的人生观、哲学和道德的思想都总结到了这部创作之中。
