Middlemarch

Notes and References

Notes

  1. ^ The title of this earlier work is put in quotes in order to distinguish it from the eventual novel of the same title.
  2. ^ Ladislaw is described by Henry James as the novel's "hero".[16]
  3. ^ Steiner remarks that the Dorothea and Lydgate plots "are equally important if not more significant in the overall structure [of the novel]".[17]
  4. ^ The novel was completed before being published in eight instalments (volumes).
  5. ^ Long, Camilla (24 January 2010). "Martin Amis and the sex war". The Times. They’ve [women] produced the greatest writer in the English language ever, George Eliot, and arguably the third greatest, Jane Austen, and certainly the greatest novel, Middlemarch...  (subscription required)
  6. ^ Jones, Nelson. "In a political arena largely devoid of obvious talent Michael Gove is a star turn". newstatesman.com. New Statesman. Retrieved 1 April 2015. Middlemarch, by contrast [to Twilight], though 150 years older, features a free-thinking, active and educated heroine. If we want our daughters to aspire, which provides the better role model? 
  7. ^ Berry, Jill (15 May 2013). "Michael Gove is wrong: why shouldn't students read Twilight?". The Guardian. Retrieved 1 April 2015. I think she would be better starting with Silas Marner or The Mill on the Floss and leaving Middlemarch until she had greater life experience and emotional maturity.
