Middlemarch

Middlemarch

‘The growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts.’ Through her portrait of a Midlands town, George Eliot addresses gender relations and class, self-knowledge and self-delusion, community and individualism. Eliot follows the fortunes of the town's central characters as they find, lose, and rediscover ideals and vocations in the world.
