Description

Complete and unabridged.

One of BBC’s 100 Novels That Shaped Our World.

A masterpiece of candid observation, emotional insight and transcending humour, Middlemarch is a truly monumental novel. Endlessly appealing to modern readers, Middlemarch has been adapted as a BBC Radio 4 drama.

Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector’s Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector’s Library are books to love and treasure. This edition features an introduction by Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Jennifer Egan.

Dorothea Brooke is a beautiful and idealistic young woman set on filling her life with good deeds. She pursues the pompous Edward Casuabon, convinced that he embodies these principles, and becomes trapped in an unhappy marriage. Then there is Tertius Lydgate, an anguished progressive whose determination to bring modern medicine to the provinces is muddied by unrequited love. They, and a multitude of other brilliantly drawn characters, reside in the town Middlemarch – the background to George Eliot’s incomparable portrait of Victorian life.
