What is Middlemarch about? What does it have to say about marriage? Does anyone achieve anything in Middlemarch? How does Eliot show the depth of feeling between Dorothea and Will? Is Middlemarch the greatest English realist novel? Is Dorothea Brooke idealised? Why so many stories? Why does the narrator have so much to say? What are people looking for in Middlemarch? How important are work and money in Middlemarch? Is Middlemarch a feminist novel? Does religion matter in Middlemarch? Why is the final meeting between Rosamond and Dorothea so important? How does Eliot show the depth of feeling between Dorothea and Will? 'If we do not have a God', observed the 20th-century novelist Stanley Middleton, 'at least we have Middlemarch.' From the moment of its first publication in 1872, George Eliot's vivid, compassionate tale of the struggles and failures of provincial life has been recognised as one of the greatest novels ever written. In this short, elegant and informative guide, Josie Billington - who has spent years studying and teaching George Eliot - shows why Middlemarch is such an extraordinary achievement and why it is so special even for those who feel saddened by it. Essential reading for students of the 19th-century novel, this concise, entertaining guide is also invaluable to anyone with an interest in English literature.
