  1. Here is another example to help you:
    In Chapter 1, Pip is feeling frightened. For example, Dickens writes, “I was seated on a high tombstone, trembling, while he ate the bread ravenously.” This shows that he is physically shaking with fear. The word “trembling” demonstrates this. Additionally, he is sitting on a “tombstone” which could also show he might be frightened, as graveyards could be scary for children.
