Wrongly accused of theft and exiled from a religious community many years before, the embittered weaver Silas Marner lives alone in Raveloe, living only for work and his precious hoard of money. But when his money is stolen and an orphaned child finds her way into his house, Silas is given the chance to transform his life. His fate, and that of Eppie, the little girl he adopts, is entwined with Godfrey Cass, son of the village Squire, who, like Silas, is trapped by his past. Silas Marner, George Eliot's favourite of her novels, combines humour, rich symbolism and pointed social criticism to create an unsentimental but affectionate portrait of rural life.He was the author of An Inquiry Concerning the Origin of Christianity (1838), a book that precipitated Evans’s break with orthodoxy that had been long in preparation. Various books on the relation between the Bible and science had instilled in her keen mind the very doubts they were written to dispel. In 1842 she told her father that she could no longer go to church. The ensuing storm raged for several months before they reached a compromise, leaving her free to think what she pleased so long as she appeared respectably at church, and she lived with him until his death in 1849.She spent the winter of 1849–50 at Geneva, reading extensively while living with the family of François D’Albert Durade, who painted a portrait of her. Like those by Mrs. Bray (1842) and Sir Frederic Burton (1865), all in the National Portrait Gallery, it shows her with light brown hair, gray-blue eyes, and a very fair complexion. Returning to Coventry, she spent the rest of 1850 with the Brays, pondering how to live on the £100 a year left by her father. After John Chapman, the publisher of The Life of Jesus Critically Examined, got her a chance to review R.W. Mackay’s The Progress of the Intellect in The Westminster Review (January 1851), she decided to settle in London as a freelance writer, and in January 1851 she went to board with the Chapmans at 142, Strand.

  • George Eliot Cover

    George Eliot  (1819-1880) il suo vero nome era Mary Ann Evans. Educata nell’ambiente austero e provinciale di una cittadina nella campagna inglese, a vent’anni Mary Ann era una donna profondamente religiosa. A trentacinque anni, a Londra, sfida le convenzioni dell’Inghilterra vittoriana andando a vivere con George Henry Lewes senza sposarsi. Nel 1857, abbandonata la sua attività di giornalista e protetta dall’anonimato, pubblica Amos Barton. È il suo esordio come narratrice e il successo è immediato. Dopo Adam Bede (1859) e Il Mulino sulla Floss (1860, che Proust confessò di non riuscire a leggere senza piangere) scrive Jacob e suo fratello, che pubblicherà solo nel 1864, dopo Silas Marner (1861) e Romola (1862-63).
