This quote demonstrates Magwitch’s feelings and thoughts that went through his head during the trial. He realized Compeyson had betrayed him and because of his appearance he got less years of imprisonment. Magwitch had to sell all of his clothes to pay for a lawyer, Mr.Jaggers and was left with old clothes that made him look like he deserved more years in prison. For the second time, when he planned to escape in a steamboat, with Pip and Herbert’s help, he sees Compeyson again and decides to risk his freedom. He tackles him and they both sink into the water. Compeyson never comes back up and Magwitch is severely injured. At the end of the book he dies, as a result of his revenge against Compeyson.
Magwitch chooses revenge twice in the book instead of his freedom, which emphasizes his hate against Compeyson. He was willing to do anything just for the sake of watching Compeyson suffer just like he did.
In conclusion, Great Expectations has three character who seek revenge against all. Miss Havisham, Orlick and Magwitch go out of their way to seek revenge.
