'George Eliot is one of a few women who can write men convincingly. Here we follow the detailed lives of five male characters from different social classes in Middlemarch: the aristocrat, an academic, the businessman/politician, a doctor, artist and farmer ('farmers without landlords, one can’t tell how to class them'). Indeed, the impact of social class is a strong theme – ‘the low people, by whose interference, however little we may like it, the course of the world is very much determined.’' - Amazon Reviewer

Introduction and Notes by Doreen Roberts, Rutherford College, University of Kent at Canterbury.

Middlemarch is a complex tale of idealism, disillusion, profligacy, loyalty and frustrated love. This penetrating analysis of the life of an English provincial town during the time of social unrest prior to the Reform Bill of 1832 is told through the lives of Dorothea Brooke and Dr Tertius Lydgate and includes a host of other paradigm characters who illuminate the condition of English life in the mid-nineteenth century.

Henry James described Middlemarch as a ‘treasurehouse of detail’ while Virginia Woolf famously endorsed George Eliot’s masterpiece as ‘one of the few English novels written for grown-up people.
