Activity Overview


Many long novels with multiple settings challenge for students with changes in setting and characters. Stories with many settings are also difficult because each setting portrays unique insights into the world of a specific character or group of people. Settings are as important as characters and, therefore, deserve tracking in detail. When followed closely, students can find rich symbols associated with settings and characters.

To help students grasp deeper meanings from setting, it is helpful for them to create a setting map that will allow them to document important characteristics of places throughout the novel. In the example that follows, students can use the setting map to see how each setting relates to its character:

Great Expectations Setting Map

The Forge This is Joes' workshop. Its characteristics are warm, bold, and sturdy. The definition of a forge has double meaning for Joe, as it is where he forges iron, and forges strong ties with others.
Satis House Latin for "enough", lore claims that anyone who lived in this house would have enough to satisfy them. However, when Miss Havisham was left on her wedding day, her home became a decaying time capsule; clocks were stopped, her wedding cake left out for years, and she continued wearing her wedding dress.
Walworth The name of Wemmicks’ home. He has built a literal moat and a metaphoric wall around himself. Who Wemmick is at home, and who he is at work, are completely different. His house is a miniature castle with draw bridge, a small farm, and a rooftop cannon that fires as specific times of day to mark the time.
Jagger's Home/Office Jagger’s home and office are much like his personality: cold and barren. They have no personal items, and are described as cold, dark, and dreary. No light is provided, and thick stale dust coats everything. Although his house is large, it is relatively unfurnished and seems empty; much like Jagger’s soul.
Barnard's Inn Pip and Herbert’s first apartment is a modest flat in a decent area of London. Like the two men just starting out, it is modest and humble. On the outside it looks presentable, but the interior looks is in need of updating. It represents the façade that Pip puts on. His outward appearance has changed, but he is still Pip on the inside.
