About this product

Miss Brooke had that sort of beauty which seems to be thrown into relief by poor dress... Described by some as the greatest novel in the English Language, Middlemarch paints a captivating portrait of provincial life at the time of the Industrial Revolution. The story centres on the idealistic Dorothea Brooke and the pioneering Tertius Lydgate and their disastrous marriages to unsuitable partners. George Eliot also draws on a huge cast of other finely drawn characters to reflect facets of humankind, in all its fragility and complexity.
