George Eliot’s Middlemarch


Course Code: HGEM-fa22 Categories: , ,


Middlemarch, George Eliot’s most famous novel, was admired by Virginia Woolf as “one of the few English novels written for grown-up people.” An engaging character study and exploration of 19th century society, Middlemarch introduces us to the idealistic Dorothea Brooke,the narrow-minded scholar/clergyman Casaubon, and the reformist doctor/artist Will Ladislaw, who gain or fail to gain self-knowledge through conflict. Online class sessions will involve mini-lectures, discussion and film clips from the BBC mini-series. Students should expect to read about 90 pages a week. Please read the first eight chapters before the first class.
