Middlemarch

by George Eliot

4.4/5

The story is principally concerned with the lives of Dorothea Brooke, an energetic, intelligent, wealthy young woman and of Tertius Lydgate, an idealistic, talented, yet naïve young doctor. Strong parallels can be drawn between the two characters; they both have great aspirations in their work and find themselves in marriages in which they are not happy with.

“It is a narrow mind which cannot look at a subject from various points of view.”

George Eliot, Middlemarch
