Summary

Mary Ann Evans (1819-1880), known by her pen name George Eliot, was one of the leading writers of the Victorian era. Her novels are known for their realism and psychological insight. Four of them are included in this volume: Middlemarch, Daniel Deronda, The Mill on the Floss, and The Lifted Veil.

Middlemarch, A Study of Provincial Life explores various subjects of concern to modern life: art, education, idealism, medicine, politics, religion, science, self, society, the status of women, and human relationships. Some of the most memorable portraits in English literature occur among Eliot’s characters: Dorothea Brooke, Rosamond Vincy, Edward Casaubon, and Will Ladislaw.

Daniel Deronda (1876) is set at the heart of the cosmopolitan aristocracy of imperial England, and is extremely broad in its scope; the author explores themes of ethnic identity, prejudice, tolerance, religion, and imperialism, and the text has many literary references to mythology, mysticism, science, and philosophy. The main characters, Daniel Deronda and Gwendolyn Harleth, are amongst Eliot’s most remarkable.

The Mill on the Floss chronicles the lives of Tom and Maggie Tulliver. The most important threads concern Maggie’s relationship with her brother, and her romantic relationships with Philip Wakem and Stephen Guest. The Mill on the Floss highlights the tension between circumstances and the energies of individuals that struggle against them.

So disappointed.

This classic tale is utterly spoilt due to poor production issues. For an "Audible Only" production if fall well short of the mark.

Whilst the narrator's voice is pleasant and comfortable to the ear, the fact that English is clearly not her mother tongue, her pronunciations are often wrong to the point of irritation.

I struggled through the books but gave up on the last volume.

A total waste of effort in my opinion.
