Description:
George Eliot's first attempt at fiction, and one that fixed her career. It has qualities of humour and tenderness that have not often been equalled. The story has a particular value as a record of an English country life that is rapidly passing away. Moreover, it is country life seen through the medium of a powerful and right-judging personality.
