Virginia Woolf described George Eliot’s Middlemarch as “one of the few English novels written for grown-up people”. Do you agree? I think Woolf is being too simplistic, but I strongly feel that no intelligent person should go through life without reading this extraordinary book.
If you know and love Middlemarch you would probably enjoy The Road to Middlemarch: My Life with George Eliot by Rebecca Mead. She first read the book at the age of 17, and re-reads it every five years and her book is an exploration of her very passionate relationship with Eliot’s classic. She shows how reading Middlemarch can make you think more carefully about marriage and friendships, and how to find more value in ordinary life. I did not always agree with everything Mead wrote, but I found her book thought-provoking and interesting.
Come with me into a world of passion and ambition, corruption and secrets, loyalty and faithlessness, and discover why Middlemarch is considered one of the world’s greatest works of fiction. I had great fun writing about it – its themes, characters, film versions, etc.
