The Aged in Great Expectations

By Charles Dickens

The Aged

The Aged is Wemmick's father who lives in the castle with Wemmick. He's a bit hard of hearing, but loves being nodded at and loves to lower the drawbridge. When he reads aloud, he reads a-LOUD. He loves his son a lot, and he helps us realize that Wemmick is actually a good guy.
