Middlemarch

Middlemarch

by George Eliot

George Eliot’s work of epic scope centers on the intersecting lives of the inhabitants of the fictitious titular town of Middlemarch. Through the narrative of the story, the author addresses the status of women, the nature of marriage, politics, religion, and education in the 19th century. Considered one of the great achievements of English literature, Middlemarch remains one of the finest examples of the author’s accomplished literary career.
