Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It was George Eliot's ambition to create a world and portray a whole community--tradespeople, middle classes, country gentry--in the rising fictional provincial town of Middlemarch, circa 1830. Vast and crowded, rich in narrative irony and suspense, Middlemarch is richer still in character and in its sense of how individual destinies are shaped by and shape the community.

Edited with an Introduction and Notes by Rosemary Ashton

About the Author

George Eliot was the nom de plume of Mary Ann Evans (1819-1880). She began her literary career as a translator and later was editor of the Westminster Review. In 1857 she published Scenes of Clerical Life, the first of eight novels she would publish under the name George Eliot.

Rosemary Ashton teaches at University College London.

Gary Moulsdale, March 21, 2015 (view all comments by Gary Moulsdale)
I have meant to read "Middlemarch" for many years. It seems that whenever it comes up in conversation, a certain look will take hold of anyone who has read it, and the talk pauses for a moment so glances can be offered and exchanged. I can now see why. I will only add that it is exhilarating to see such a detailed and tender imagining of a world, and to enjoy the author's decision to lavish attention on these characters and the paths to their choices.
