Miss Havisham is one of the major characters in Charles Dickens' novel "Great Expectations". She plasy a pivotal role in the progression of the plot and also acts as a means through which Pip learns about life.

In Chapter XXII, Herbert Pocket told Pip that Estella "has been brought up by Miss Havisham to wreak revenge on all the male sex." This is due to the fact that her guardian Miss Havisham had been jilted by Compeyson on what was supposed to be their wedding day.
