Sisters Dorothea and Cecilia live in genteel poverty in an English village. Dorothea, seeking a life of noble service, falls for the dry intellectual Edward Casaubon, much to her light-hearted sister’s dismay. Eight hundred pages of deep psychological insight that read like gossip make Eliot’s masterpiece possibly the greatest novel ever written.

This is a long novel.It was taught to us in last year in University.A host of characters are present and actions of people of all walk are recorded artistically by Eliot(Mary Ann).In Victorian era there were conventional views about Womanhood.Dorothea's aim's could only be fullfilled after her marriage which proved fake with Causabon.Lydgate and Dorothea were ,somewhat,similar figures.Social stubborness,unhappy marriages,women's role in society ,relatins between Evengelicals ans Anglicans are core issues of the novel.Psychological analysis of differet characters and clear eye view of human nature is speciality of this beautful novel.

This is probably the best novel you'll ever read. It's action-packed - but all the action is psychological, and it is described in great detail by Eliot, so that we know exactly what motivates the character to act in the way they do. The power of this novel is in its gradual unfolding of the personalities and thoughts of the people whose stories Eliot tells, and in the gentle yet relentless increase in drama and tension, until the final climax when all is resolved. If you haven't read this, make it the next on your list.

I love George Eliot! My favorite DailyLit read and one of my favorite books ever was The Mill on the Floss. I looked very forward to reading this, her most famous book, because it seemed it would have to be even more insightful, more passionate than any other. And while it is both of those things, they are more tempered here. I'd say that Middlemarch is famous more for its structure and literary achievements than for its beauty to read. That makes a difference to me. There are some extraordinary characters, however, and I read this very fast, enjoying it (almost) all the way through.
