Greenlight Fiction Book Group discusses Middlemarch

Led by Greenlight staff, this book group discusses paperback fiction on the third Tuesday of each month. For January, the group discusses George Eliot's Middlemarch. One of the most accomplished and prominent novels of the Victorian era, Middlemarch is an unsurpassed portrait of nineteenth-century English provincial life. Dorothea Brooke is a young woman of fervent ideals who yearns to effect social change yet faces resistance from the society she inhabits. In this epic in a small landscape, Eliot's large cast of precisely delineated characters and the rich tapestry of their stories result in a wise, compassionate, and astute vision of human nature. As Virginia Woolf declared, George Eliot "was one of the first English novelists to discover that men and women think as well as feel, and the discovery was of great artistic moment."Special guest: Rebecca Mead, author of My Life in Middlemarch (book event at Greenlight February 5!)
