George Eliot's most ambitious novel is a masterly evocation of diverse lives and changing fortunes in a provincial community. Peopling its landscape are Dorothea Brooke, a young idealist whose search for intellectual fulfilment leads her into a disastrous marriage to the pedantic scholar Casaubon; the charming but tactless Dr Lydgate, whose pioneering medical methods, combined with an imprudent marriage to the spendthrift beauty Rosamond, threaten to undermine his career; and the religious hypocrite Bulstrode, hiding scandalous crimes from his past. As their stories interweave, George Eliot creates a richly nuanced and moving drama, hailed by Virginia Woolf as 'one of the few English novels written for grown-up people'.
This edition uses the text of the second edition of 1874. In her introduction, Rosemary Ashton, biographer of George Eliot, discusses themes of change in Middlemarch, and examines the novel as an imaginative embodiment of Eliot's humanist beliefs.

Why George Eliot couldn't write War & Peace but could write MiddlemarchGeorge Eliot once very politely told people that she never asked people over unless they wanted to visit her in the first place. This was because she was living in sin with a married man and wouldn't this taint the chastity of Mrs-whoever-came-for-a-visit?

More than Great value for moneyIt takes a while to get into the groove, but if you stick to it, you'll love the lyrical english of the old, delightful insights into character and the quotes at the beginning of every chapter. Just don't mind the girth.
