Making masterful use of a counter pointed plot, Eliot presents the stories of a number of denizens of a small English town on the eve of the Reform Bill of 1832. The main characters, Dorothea Brooke and Tertius Lydgate, each long for exceptional lives but are powerfully constrained by their own unrealistic expectations as well as conservative society. The novel is notable for its deep psychological insight and sophisticated character portraits.

Beautiful novel

A Masterpiece that Pulls at one's Heart

One of the most compelling books I've ever read- the descriptions of the characters in their social setting and the deep psychological descriptions left me continually experiencing joy to be immersed in the heart rending situational circumstances. The characters one comes to know intimately through their trials and tribulations are priceless. George Eliot brings to life individuals of great evil, but also human beings whose actions provide a beacon to lead us mortals to aspire to greatness.

I highly recommend this book!


This time in reading Middlemarch I particularly noticed the issue we all face when dating and contemplating marriage and that is that we take what we know of a person and what we feel we can expect out of life and we paint a picture that is never fulfilled as we envisioned it. The people in this book honored their covenant made in marriage despite their unhappiness. That is no longer a usual occurrence. George Eliot writes magnificently.
