Silas Marner

by George Eliot


It tells the sad story of the unjustly exiled Silas Marner – a handloom linen weaver of Raveloe in the agricultural heartland of England – and how he is restored to life by the unlikely means of the orphan child Eppie.

“Hurt, he'll never be hurt--he's made to hurt other people.”

George Eliot, Silas Marner
