Bentley Drummle

Character Analysis

Bentley Drummle is Pip's lifelong nemesis. He's mean, haughty, and abrasive. Oh, and did we mention, rich? Jaggers actually likes Drummle (well, he is a shady lawyer), but tells Pip to stay away from him. Drummle eventually marries Estella, to Pip's great anguish, and he becomes an abusive husband. He dies while mistreating a horse, and we're only a little sorry.
