Description
Information
By the time the novel appeared to tremendous popular and critical acclaim in 1871-2, George Eliot was recognized as England's finest living novelist. It was her ambition to create a world and portray a whole community - tradespeople, middle classes, country gentry - in the rising provincial town of 'Middlemarch', circa 1830. Vast and crowded, rich in narrative irony and suspense, 'Middlemarch' is richer still in character, in its sense of how individual destinies are shaped by and shape the community, and in the great art that enlarges the reader's sympathy and imagination. It is truly, as Virginia Woolf famously remarked, 'one of the few English novels written for grown-up people'.
