Silas Marner


This product is unavailable

The perfect companion to The Mill on the Floss and Middlemarch, both published in Alma Classics' Evergreens series, Silas Marner portrays a changing society with realism.

Having been accused of theft and hounded out of a religious community many years previously, the weaver Silas Marner now lives alone in the village of Raveloe, hoarding the precious wealth he earns. But when Silas's beloved gold is stolen, and an orphaned girl finds her way into his home, he is given the opportunity to transform his selfish and embittered life.

George Eliot's favorite novel--rich in symbolism, humor and social criticism--Silas Marner is one of the great nineteenth-century portrayals of rural life.
