Overview: Eliot examines a great variety of issues affecting provincial life in 1830s England.

What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “A sprawling novel that explores themes still relevant today, especially the role of women in society.  It takes a while to get through it, but your effort will be well rewarded.  There are those who believe this is the best novel in English.”

Ethan: “Even though it was published in the 1870’s, I was amazed to see how many of the social issues described in Middlemarch still plague modern society to one degree or another.”
