    Dorothea Brooke is an ardent idealist who represses her vivacity and intelligence for the cold, theological pedant Casaubon. One man understands her true nature: the artist Will Ladislaw. But how can love triumph against her sense of duty and Casaubon's mean spirit? Meanwhile, in the little world of Middlemarch, the broader world is mirrored: the world of politics, social change, and reforms, as well as betrayal, greed, blackmail, ambition, and disappointment.

    The Mill on the Floss is one of the great works of English literature. It is perhaps the most autobiographical of all Eliot's novels. The relationship between its heroine, Maggie Tulliver, and her brother, Tom, closely resembles that of George Eliot and her own brother, Isaac. The subject of sibling affection was clearly a deeply poignant one for George Eliot - she also wrote a series of beautiful and evocative sonnets entitled 'Brother and Sister'.

    George Eliots mest ambitiösa roman Middlemarch är en komplex berättelse om idealism, lojalitet och uppslitande kärlek. I en engelsk småstad under 1800-talets första hälft får vi följa den unga idealisten Dorothea Brooke som är olyckligt gift, och den charmige men taktlöse Dr Tertius Lydgate som även han har problem på det äktenskapliga planet.
