I think the sincerity of Miss Havisham's remorse is at its peak when she is on her deathbed. Earlier in her conversation with Pip she asked him.
Table of contents

Miss Havisham has been betrayed by a single man and now wishes to get even with mankind in general. Everything she does especially with Estella is to achieve that purpose. If she favours you, love her. If she wounds you, love her. If she tears your heart to pieces—and as it gets older and stronger, it will tear deeper—love her, love her, love her!

As Miss Havisham urges Pip to love Estella , she says nothing about her loving him in return. This, of course, is not an option. The intensity with which she speaks and the repetition she uses highlights Miss Havisham's mania.

by Charles Dickens

Miss Havisham has brought Estella up to be the instrument of her revenge. She looks on her as a daughter even though she is not. She hung upon Estella's beauty, hung upon her words, hung upon her gestures, and sat mumbling her own trembling fingers while she looked at her, as though she were devouring the beautiful creature she had reared. It also foreshadows how her obsession will lead to her death. Miss Havisham is wealthy, having inherited money and the house from her parents. While she could put this to good use, her home is in ruins and some of her poorer relations struggle to make ends meet.

There are five and twenty guineas in this bag. She also looks a little afraid of Pip, which is strange.

Logging out…

Miss Havisham is totally willing to cough up the money, and she also wants to know what she can do for Pip. But Pip doesn't want any money. Miss Havisham begs Pip to forgive her, and Pip tells her he has already. He tells her he's been too much of a jerk in his own life to be able to hold a grudge against anyone else, let alone Miss Havisham. Miss Havisham is totally sad, and tells Pip that she didn't realize what she had done until Pip had professed his love to Estella. She sees herself in Pip's sadness, and she recognizes that her broken heart matches his. She throws herself at Pip's feet, and Pip doesn't quite know what to do.

Pip tells her that she can remove him from her conscience, but that she should do everything in her power to help heal Estella's frozen popsicle of a heart. She only invited Pip to her neglected mansion for the purpose of using Pip as practice for Estella. Pip served as Estella's test dummy on her quest of heartbreak.

This quote unveils a proud and impatient side of Miss Havisham. Although her house was, indeed in ruins, she was still proud of it and her wealth, and didn't favor Pip insulting it. This quote also reveals an impatient side in that since Pip didn't desire to play cards, she wasn't going to wait around all day for him to choose something to do. Although she was stuck in time so to speak, she was always moving.

Miss Havisham Regrets by Marcia Talley - FictionDB

What have I done! This passage was extremely important to Miss Havisham's development in the novel. This was selected from the end of the novel where Miss Havisham began to regret how she had transformed Estella, who could have been affectionate and thoughtful, into a cold- heated person. Not only did she regret manipulating Estella's emotions, but felt remorseful for deceiving Pip into thinking he would someday wed Estella and receive all of Miss Havisham's money when she passed.

This passage was taken from the end of the novel. In fact, these were some of the last words of her dialouge in the novel. After she barely survived being burnt to death, her mental state worsened even more.


She wasn't able to abandon the thought of what she had done to Estella and Pip, and all she wanted was true forgiveness. Even after Pip had forgiven her, she still continued to ask to be forgiven. This shows how her mental state was worsening in that she needed to hear herself being forgiven constantly for her to be alright. The trauma of the fire made her mental condition ever the more worse, and she was stuck in that state until her death.

This passage was derived from the end of the novel. Estella proceeds to tell her that she is what she is due to Miss Havisham. Her "successes and her failures" are all Miss Havisham's. Miss Havisham realizes through this conversation that she manipulated Estella to be cold to everyone, even herself, and that it is possible that Estella could leave her. Although, the reason for Miss Havisham's fear was neevr stated in the novel, this is a possible cause of her fear.
