Middlemarch: A Study of Provincial Life is exactly what it claims. Its multiple plots center around the inhabitants of a fictitious Midlands town and their evolving relationships to each other. It is critical of social class, ambition and marriage, and religion. It is commonly considered one of the masterpieces of English writing, and Virginia Woolf described it as "the magnificent book that, with all its imperfections, is one of the few English novels written for grown-up people".

    The Getting of Wisdom de Henry Handel Richardson (thesmellofbooks)
    thesmellofbooks: The Getting of Wisdom is the rare sort of book that provokes deep self-reflection and a nudge in the direction of peace-making with self and life, and in this way brings to mind [[George Eliot]]'s [Middlemarch]. I am gobsmacked. The novel begins as an entertaining tale of a headstrong young Australian girl going to meet the world at boarding school. It gradually evolves into a subtle, simple, and stunningly real observation of the pressures of conformity and the intolerance of naïveté, which, when paired with a strong desire to be accepted, can lead to many and often rending responses in an imaginative young person. Yet it is not a tragedy. I am left moved, affectionate, a little worried about the future, and yet joyful at the intactness of the protagonist's resilient soul. Bravo, Ms Richardson.… (més)

Most giant novels I read, I end up thinking that they could have used a better editor. This one, though, felt like it earned its 800 page length in its tale about a provincial town in Georgian England. It primarily follows the course of two marriages: that between intelligent and warm-spirited Dorothea and the much older clergyman, Edward Casaubon, whom she falls in love with, holding out hope to devote her considerable mental energy to a collaboration with him on the scholarly mythological text he’s devoted his life to writing, and then that between Tertius Lydgate, a doctor who arrives in the area to set up a new medical practice with dreams of conducting important research, and Rosamond Vincy, the most beautiful girl in town, who sees the new doctor as her route to the elevated status she craves. While a more romantic novel would have presented these love matches as the end of the story, here they are just the beginning, and we can see how the hope and feelings that were brought into them fail under the weight of reality rather than expectation. It’s often a funny book, tartly acidic about its characters and their foibles, and only seldom a sentimental one. Eliot’s character work is wonderful, everyone feels fully realized and like a person with tendencies both good and bad. It doesn’t move along particularly briskly, but neither does it drag. Its world feels realistic, and is populated with side characters who get lives and sometimes storylines of their own. It was an enjoyable experience to read, but I was definitely glad when it was done and is best for a relatively patient reader. ( )

Loved the narration --Nadia May (AKA Wanda McCaddon, Donada Peters)! Loved the story! Wondered if it should be mandatory reading for engaged couples (yes, a bit didactic, but not obnoxiously so). ( )

Put off reading Middlemarch for fear it would be too much like 18th c books that don't usually appeal to me, but this audio version kept me walking for hours! It is not just about the agonies of women trying to find marriage partners but it is an excellent feminist account of the mores of the time with insights into the present day. And the story is so compelling I couldn't wait to get back to it just to find out who did what next! ( )

We all have to exert ourselves a little to keep sane. (Mrs Cadwallader to Dorothea p.391)


My particular 1956 edition started falling apart just as I began to read it. By page 40 there were pages everywhere so I switched to an audio book masterfully (if I can use such a gendered word) read by Juliet Stevenson. Here I should quote George Eliot (Anna Evans),

I am not sure that the greatest man of his age, if ever that solitary superlative existed...


This wry moment of confidence between writer and reader characterizes what I love about Eliot's wonderful writing. First, the understated distance between the author and her characters. Second, the precision of her sentences. Third, the gentle and sympathetic humour which leads to gleeful chuckling on my side of the page.

Before I opened Middlemarch I was concerned that I'd be overwhelmed by another 'bonnet novel' of dubious interest, but almost immediately I found that I was in a different space altogether. Something timeless about the insights into character and situation.

This is a wonderful book in which the story is merely incidental to the beautifully articulated and extraordinary perceptions of the author. I chuckled my way through this narrative with a mixture of joy and awe

Unwonted circumstances may make us all rather unlike ourselves: there are circumstances under which the most majestic person is obliged to sneeze, and our emotions are liable to be acted on in the same incongruous manner. (p.459)



"It would have been better if I had called him out and shot him a year ago," said Sir James, not from bloody mindedness. but because he needed something strong to say.
"Really, James, that would have been very disagreeable," said Celia. (p.597)

It was a little bit of a challenge to tackle this book. I put it off reading for some time, but I am so glad that I finally picked it up and read it. I would highly advise listening to the audiobook version by naxos with Julius Stevenson as the reader. I have found in my personal reading, when working my way through a 19th century English literature book, that the audio version helps me get into the mindset and language of that time period. Juliet Stevenson is probably one of the finest readers I have come across. She especially does an excellent job with all the different character voices.
As for the book itself. George Elliott really shines with her observations of human nature, psychology, and exploring those avenues through her characters and their relationships. The plot slowly works its way along a path that never really bores you. By the end of the book you will have grown to care so much about the interactions with each character that you will be turning pages, and finding new time in your life to read further. 900 pages is daunting, but by the end of the book you could keep on reading a few more hundred pages. If you like character development, this book is for you. Put it on your TBR, and find the time sometime in the future where you can explore the debts of George Elliott's world in Middlemarch. ( )

Who that cares much to know the history of man, and how the mysterious mixture behaves under the varying experiments of Time, has not dwelt, at least briefly, on the life of Saint Theresa, has not smiled with some gentleness at the thought of the little girl waling forth one morning hand-in-hand with her still smaller brother, to go and seek martyrdom in the country of the Moors? (Prelude)
Miss Brooke had that kind of beauty which seems to be thrown into relief by poor dress.

Miss Brooke had that kind of beauty which seems to be thrown into relief by poor dress.
Sane people did what their neighbors did, so that if any lunatics were at large, one might know and avoid them.
What we call our despair is often only the painful eagerness of unfed hope.
Riding was an indulgence which she allowed herself in spite of conscientious qualms; she felt that she enjoyed it in a pagan sensuous way, and always looked forward to renouncing it.
Some discouragement, some faintness of the heart at the new real future which replaces the imaginary, is not unusual, and we do not expect people to be deeply moved by what is not unusual. That element of tragedy which lies in the very fact of frequency, has not yet wrought itself into the coarse emotions of mankind.
