Description
Middlemarch is a recognized masterpiece that explores the complex social world of nineteenth-century England. It is concerned with the lives of several ordinary people, albeit ones with high social standing. The novel is set in the small town of Middlemarch and follows the interrelated lives of several characters. At the heart of the book is Dorothea, a kind-hearted and honest woman who longs to find some way to improve the world. She marries an older academic, Casaubon, against the advice of her friends and family. Casaubon tries to assert his influence over Dorthea, but she refuses to succumb to his will. Casaubon soon dies of a heart attack, and Dorothea marries his cousin, Will. But, in a final attempt to control Dorothea's life, Casaubon's will states that if Dorothea marries Will, she will lose her claim to Casaubon's estate. Meanwhile, the young doctor, Lydgate, comes to Middlemarch to start his own practice. He soon falls in love with Rosamund, a woman who has spent her life in Middlemarch, and they eventually marry. Fred Vincey, used to a lavish lifestyle but also a gambler, falls into debt as he waits to inherit money from a rich neighbor. He drifts toward the clergy and longs to marry Mary Garth. But until he proves himself worthy, Mary will have nothing to do with him. Through these various characters and their relationships, the novel explores the very fabric of Victorian society in the 1800s, showing how various human passions-heroism, egotism, love, and lust-interrelate within this society.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Known for her social commentary on women's roles and class strictures, Eliot delves into the romantic dilemmas of the Brooke sisters and others in a provincial Midlands town. Eliot (the pen name of Mary Ann Evans) surrounds the protagonists with a gallery of characters from many social classes--laborers, shopkeepers, clergy, landed gentry, and others. Kate Reading portrays Eliot's characters with a faultless British accent and lends the prose emphasis and expression. As the novel's several couples are trapped by societal judgments, irreversible mistakes, indecision, and restraint, their dilemmas, as well as Eliot's psychological insights and use of irony, make them sound like modern figures. Reading's well-paced, measured narration captures the novel's realism--with its fresh rendering of a complex and often harsh social world. A.W. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: George Eliot's novels often involve a kaleidoscope of characters, and MIDDLEMARCH is no exception. Dorothea and Rosamond are two young women whose marriages lead to inevitable conflict. The big themes involving social and personal responsibility, fate, and morality recur again and again as the listener meets the colorful residents whose lives are knit into those of Dorothea and Rosamond. Kate Reading handles the lively, often complex, prose with alacrity, dancing along Eliot's witty commentary with engaging skill. The novel is certainly long, but the diligent listener is rewarded with a story full of twists and turns. L.B.F. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine
