Gold! - his own gold - brought back to him as mysteriously as it
had been taken away! Falsely accused of theft, Silas Marner is cut
off from his community but finds refuge in the village of Raveloe,
where he is eyed with distant suspicion. Like a spider from a
fairy-tale, Silas fills fifteen monotonous years with weaving and
accumulating gold. The son of the wealthy local Squire, Godfrey
Cass also seeks an escape from his past. One snowy winter, two
events change the course of their lives: Silas's gold is stolen
and, a child crawls across his threshold. Combining the qualities
of a fable with a rich evocation of rural life in the early years
of the nineteenth century, Silas Marner (1861) is a masterpiece of
construction and a powerful meditation on the value of communal
bonds in a mysterious world.
