In the absence of parents there are plenty of people who tell Pip what to do, to bully him, in a self-satisfied, self-enhancing way, but there is no one to shield him or guide him, or give him the special kind of love that he seeks.

He realizes that he is out of place when the boys placed him and he “was inevitably relegated to right field, far out of harm’s way” (130). While in the outfield he thought that his boredom took out his “anxiety that a ball might come” (130).

‘Please, Sir, I want some more.’ ” As Oliver was doing this you can imagine that the other children were sitting behind him sniggering about the trick they played on him. He doesn’t realise that he is doing wrong as he wasn’t brought up knowing what is right and wrong. He doesn’t fit in because Oliver is spirited, full of hopes and dreams whereas the others have convinced themselves that they will never get out of the workhouse and therefore it will never happen.
