One of the BBC's '100 Novels That Shaped Our World'

'One of the few English novels written for grown-up people' Virginia Woolf

George Eliot's nuanced and moving novel is a masterly evocation of connected lives, changing fortunes and human frailties 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; 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.

Edited with an Introduction and notes by ROSEMARY ASHTON

MEDIA REVIEWS
"No Victorian novel approaches Middlemarch in its width of reference, its intellectual power, or the imperturbable spaciousness of its narrative."

“Intricate but not for novices”

This book was firmly on my list of "must read" classics as it had been kindly reviewed in many places. And on reflection you can see why; it is a tapestry of English life revolving around the background of... More

“Middlemarch”

There are purists out there who will hate me for saying this, but Middlemarch is a very good soap opera. Like Coronation Street or EastEnders, it is set in a specific locality – in this case a country town. It... More
