George Eliot and Silas Marner
- A new article about George Eliot's
has been posted at the website of Today in Literature,
a small independent online publication about the great
writers, books and events in literary history.
"George Eliot and Silas Marner"
On this day in 1861, George Eliot's Silas Marner was
published. Though generally viewed as one of Eliot's
minor works, it was as popular among readers when it
came out as her earlier "Adam Bede" and "The Mill on
the Floss"; the book has also attracted attention for
the parallel found between the old weaver's life of
misery and redemption and Eliot's own.
