Book Description
Adam Bede (1859), George Eliot`s first full-length novel, marked the emergence of an artist to rank with Scott and Dickens. Set in the English Midlands of farmers and village craftsman at the turn of the eighteenth century, the book realtes a story of seduction issuing in `the inward suffering which is the worst form of Nemesis`. But it is also a rich and pioneering record - drawing on intiamte knowledge and affectionate memory - of a rural world that we have lost. The movement of the narration between social realism and reflection on its own processes, the exploration of motives, and the constant authorial presence all bespeak an art that strives to connect the fictional with the actual.
