Middlemarch is an extraordinary novel about the lives of ordinary people. It has been appropriately subtitled A Study of Provincial Life. Set in the early nineteenth century when England was undergoing rapid industrialisation, in a fictitious town names Middlemarch, the story centres around the social relations in the town, including the political reforms, societal condition of women, vocation, marriage, religion, and education. The narrative is highly interwoven with multiple plots and a large list of complex characters. There is the intense and idealistic Dorothea Brooke, the comical Mr. Brooke, the stubborn and vain Rosamond, and the extremely proud Lydgate. The book doesn’t consist of any protagonist in particular. Each character is depicted as being equally important as any other. Over 700 pages long, this book provides a very compelling portrayal of human nature, morality, and hypocrisy. Middlemarch is often regarded as one of the rather modern novels written during the glorious Victorian era. The book has inspired many great writers including Virginia Woolf. Intricate, complex, experimental, and insightful at the same time, this classic global bestseller has been a must read for one and for all since it was first published in 1874. It has been adopted for a mini television series twice. A forthcoming film, to be directed by Sam Mendes, will be based on the book
