Middlemarch (Annotated)
Middlemarch (Annotated): Complete Eight Books | George Eliot
1 post
Middlemarch: Complete Eight Books By George Eliot, first published in 1874. Mary Ann Evans (1819-1880, also "Mary Anne" or "Marian"), known by her pen name George Eliot, was an English novelist, journalist, translator and one of the leading writers of the Victorian era. Middlemarch, is her seventh novel, begun in 1869 and then put aside during the final illness of Thornton Lewes, the son of her companion George Henry Lewes. During the following year Eliot resumed work, fusing together several stories into a coherent whole, and during 1871-72 the novel appeared in serial form. The first one-volume edition was published in 1874, and attracted large sales. The novel is set in the fictitious Midlands town of Middlemarch during the period 1830-32. It has multiple plots with a large cast of characters, and in addition to its distinct though interlocking narratives it pursues a number of underlying themes, including the status of women, the nature of marriage, idealism and self-interest, religion and hypocrisy, political reform, and education.

Because I just finished Middlemarch recently - and am very much obsessed with it now - I was delighted to learn that there is a modern day web series adaptation. Guess what I‘ll be binging this week (and probably beyond... its 70 episodes 😄)

Soubhiville 70 episodes?!?! Let us know what you think of it. 3mo
Eyelit @Soubhiville I‘m ten episodes in (they range from 4-10 minutes) and am really enjoying it! 3mo
sprainedbrain I had no idea about this, and I love Middlemarch. Thank you for sharing! (edited) 3mo
Eyelit @sprainedbrain I just finished the series (apparently I have no self control) and it‘s pretty good. Obvs a lot was cut (because there are only 10 actors total I think), but the general story and themes come through in the update, methinks. Hope you enjoy! 3mo
