Considered one the masterpieces of realist fiction, George Eliot's
novel, Middlemarch: A Study of Provincial Life, explores a
fictional nineteenth-century Midlands town in the midst of modern
changes. The quiet drama of ordinary lives and flawed choices are
played out in the complexly portrayed central characters of the
novel-the idealistic Dorothea Brooke; the ambitious Dr. Lydgate;
the spendthrift Fred Vincy; and the steadfast Mary Garth. The
appearance of two outsiders further disrupts the town's
equilibrium-Will Ladislaw, the spirited nephew of Dorothea's
husband, the Rev. Edward Casaubon, and the sinister John Raffles,
who threatens to expose the hidden past of one of the town's elite.
