Overview

*Illustrated
*Includes Table of Contents

George Eliot was one of the best writers of the 19th century, but By George, this was no man. Instead, George Eliot was the pen name of Mary Anne Evans, a skilled female novelist who wanted to make sure her work was taken seriously by using a masculine pen name. The practice was widely used in Europe in the 19th century, including by the Bronte sisters.

Regardless of her name, her work became well known in its time for realism and its psychological insight, including novels like Adam Bede 1859, The Mill on the Floss 1860, Silas Marner 1861, Middlemarch 1871–72, and Daniel Deronda 1876, most of them set in provincial England. Her work also infused religion and politics, and Victorian Era readers were fond of her books’ depictions of society.

This edition of Eliot’s Middlemarch is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with over a dozen pictures of Eliot.

    Bad Version

    This version of Middlemarch crashed my Nook repeatedly. I opted to download a different version.

    a soap opera to read

    this book illustrates the imagination that Eliot had. it is very comlex and deep with content. there are so many different conflicts and themes to learn from in this book. the lessons that are tought throughout the book make this novel worth reading. i do not reccomend this book to people who do not like a challenge when they read because this book calls for a good memory and patience for the parts that get kind of slow. the book switches around a lot on the characters, telling one story and then jumping to another about someone else. this book calls for a lot of thinking and i can see now why this was called a brilliant masterpiece. there is so much to read and so many people to learn about before you can get in to the book . i recommend this book to the advanced readers.

    Timeless

    This is a story about the timeless issues of the self and of human relationships, love, decency and corruption, society's virtues and vices. A good book if you like classics, however I do not recommend it if one is not up for a long reading...

    Great Classic Book!

    I really enjoyed how George Eliot made you feel like you were apart of Middlemarch. By the end of the book you really feel like you knew the people personally. This is the first George Eliot book I have read, but I look forward to reading more.

    All about Middlemarch

    Middlemarch was a good book but it was not as great as I thought it would be. I definetly recommend this book to other people because I am sure they will like it a little more than me. I was interested in many parts of the book, but I just thought it was a little drawn out. I am not a big time reader to I usually don't like to read the same book for a week or so.

    B.R. Student 5/03

    Middlemarch is a good novel set in the early ninetenth century in England. Eliot gives the novel many character's to show different examples of what life was like in England in 1832. The style is very similar to a modern soap opera. The novel, just as a soap opera, has many families that live in the same town and somehow are all connected. I recommend people read Middlemarch to learn about everyday life during the 1830's. Eliot shows the reader how the lives of the character's in the novel are affected due to all the historical changes and events. The novel is very long and at times a little dry, so I recommend that you have a lot of time to read and enjoy the novel fully. Middlemarch is a great example of victorian literature, creating real enents with Eliot's character's.

    A Victorian dessert

    For those who enjoy social novels and don't mind the number of pages this excellent overlook of the life in Victorian England will supplement with all necessary stuff for the great novel.

    a mirror of humanity

    Middlemarch is deffinatly a great work of literature. There is a huge variety of characters and they strangely mirror ourselves. I recommend this book, but it must be read when you have a lot of time and you must be persistant, because there are many boring parts and the plot flows leisurely and at a very slow pase.
