Novel Re-Writing

For many of us, our introduction to English Literature was Charles Dickens, and it’s that time of year when his Christmas Carol appears in bookshops, libraries and on the TV.  One of his best known works is Great Expectations, where Miss Havisham is jilted at the altar.   Using this as inspiration, Heroine Jenevieve Aken created a thought-provoking series of work where she inserted herself into the narrative as Miss Havisham and imagined a very different ending.  Read her alternative ending here.
