Published as part of George Eliot's fictional debut, Amos Barton is a moving, honest work, containing the same warm irony and keen observations that mark so many of her later novels. Parson Amos Barton is responsible not only for the spiritual welfare of his flock - in particular protecting them from the evils of Dissenting preachers - but also for his extensive family. Burying himself in the works of the Evangelical greats, he may find food for thought for his parishioners, but the family's poverty only worsens. For all his learning, it seems not even he can contain their inevitable tragedy.
