Mary Anne Evans, known by her pen name George Eliot, was an English novelist, poet, journalist, translator and one of the leading writers of the Victorian era.
A triumph of realist fiction, George Eliotâ€™s Middlemarch: A Study of Provincial Life explores a fictional nineteenth-century Midlands town in the midst of sweeping change. The proposed Reform Bill, the new railroads, and scientific advances are threatening upheaval on every front. Against this backdrop, the quiet drama of ordinary lives is played out by the novelâ€™s complexly portrayed charactersâ€”until the arrival of two outsiders further disrupts the townâ€™s equilibrium. Every bit as powerful and perceptive in our time as it was in the Victorian era, Middlemarch displays George Eliotâ€™s clear-eyed yet humane understanding of characters caught up in the mysterious unfolding of self-knowledge.
