Product Description

If we do not have a God, observed the 20th-century novelist Stanley Middleton, at least we have Middlemarch. From the moment of its first publication in 1872, George Eliot's vivid, compassionate tale of the struggles and failures of provincial life has been recognised as one of the greatest novels ever written. In this short, elegant and informative guide, Josie Billington - who has spent years studying and teaching George Eliot - shows why Middlemarch is such an extraordinary achievement and why it is so special even for those who feel saddened by it. Essential reading for students of the 19th-century novel, this concise, entertaining guide would alse be invaluable to anyone with an interest in English literature.

Format: Paperback
I wish I had had this when I first read Middlemarch 30 years ago! It has added so many layers to my understanding of the book and the characters. The guide treats so many questions about realism, feminism, religion, marriage and describes the social context of the book in an age when everything was changing. I only query the interpretation of the name Middlemarch - I understood it to be an area of the middle, as in a county, or march territory, so important to the environment of the characters who struggle to rise above the middle rank. But it gave me a lot to think about!
