Synopses & Reviews
The focus of the New Casebooks is on modern critical thinking and practice, with the volumes seeking to reflect both the controversy and the excitement of current criticism. Because much of this criticism is difficult and often employs an unfamiliar critical language, editors have been asked to give the reader as much help as they feel is appropriate, but without simplifying the essays or the issues they raise. 'Middlemarch', by common consent one of the most important novels in English, has always stimulated outstanding criticism. This volume presents a range of current ways of looking at 'Middlemarch'.
