Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Eliot probes deeply into the psychology of commonplace people caught in the act of uncommon heroics. Alexandre Dumas called this novel 'the masterpiece of the century.'

Synopsis:

Adam Bede (1859) was Eliot's first novel proper. Rich pastoral, simple dignity, violence and weakness are interwoven with a sure touch and a shrewd understanding of motive.
