George Eliot's tale of a solitary miser gradually redeemed by the joy of fatherhood Silas Marner is edited with an introduction and notes by David Carroll in Penguin ClassicsWrongly accused of theft and exiled from a religious community many years before the embittered weaver Silas Marner lives alone in Raveloe living only for work and his precious hoard of money But when his money is stolen and an orphaned child finds her way into his house Silas is given the chance to transform his life His fate and that of Eppie the little girl he adopts is entwined with Godfrey Cass son of the village Squire who like Silas is trapped by his past Silas Marner George Eliot's favourite of her novels combines humour rich symbolism and pointed social criticism to create an unsentimental but affectionate portrait of rural lifeThis text uses the Cabinet edition revised by George Eliot in 1878 David Carroll's introduction is complemented by the original Penguin Classics edition introduction by QD LeavisMary Ann Evans 1819 80 began her literary career as a translator and later editor of the Westminster Review In 1857 she published Scenes of Clerical Life the first of eight novels she would publish under the name of 'George Eliot' including The Mill on the Floss Middlemarch and Daniel DerondaIf you enjoyed Silas Marner you might like Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter also available in Penguin Classics'I think Silas Marner holds a higher place than any of the author's works It is nearly a masterpiece it has of that simple rounded consummate aspect which marks a classical work'Henry James

    Dear Ms ParkI finally finished reading Silas Marner Yes I know you assigned it during my sopho year in high school but I didn't finish it until this past February I know I passed the test you gave us on the story and I even made a passing grade on the paper that I wrote about the story But I have to confess that it was Jake D's Classic Illustrated Comics version of the story that allowed me to make those grades Poor Jake Even after reading the comic book from cover to cover he still failed both assignmentsSince I'm confessing and apologizing I suppose I should add one thing I'm sorry you caught me that day in class reading a paperback copy of Erskine Caldwell's God's Little Acre that I had tucked inside my lit book when I was supposed to have been reading about Silas Now there was a writer Erskine Caldwell I mean He could tell a story and unlike Silas Marner things happened in his books I had just gotten to a really interesting scene in this one when you caught me the one with Darlin' Jill and the albino in the boat I can still see your hand dart across my shoulder and snatch the book away And then with everybody in the class looking and while you held the book between your thumb and forefinger like it was a dead mouse you looked at me and said one word Trash Boy was my face red I never did know if you were talking about the book or me or bothBut in my defense neither I nor any other fourteen year old boy should have been required to read Silas Marner unless of course the goal was to instill a hatred of reading I say this as someone who always loved to read from the time that he first learned to read Discounting comic books poor old Jake on the other hand despised reading and had never read an entire book in his whole life He might have been enticed to read about the Three Musketeers or Robin Hood or Huck Finn but never Silas Marner One of the problems that I had at first with the story was the fact that you told us that the author's name wasn't really George Eliot I remember thinking that I didn't blame him for not using his real name I wouldn't have either But then you told us that George's real name was Mary Ann Evans Well as far as I was concerned that made George a lot interesting than SilasI also remember you telling us that EliotEvans' most famous quote was It is never too late to be what you might have been Even at age fourteen I found that to be profound and inspiring much so than the few pages I read in Silas Marner But I recently discovered that the quote does not appear in anything that she wrote and that there is no evidence that she ever said it I am no longer inspired just disappointedBut as I say I finally read the whole story Here's my review It was better than I expectedBy the way if you read my copy of God's Little Acre the one you never returned I bet you found it to be better than you expectedYour former studentHoward
