Image of Middlemarch with Rebecca Mead

Published when George Eliot was fifty-one, Middlemarch has at its centre one of literature’s most compelling and ill-fated marriages, and some of the most tenderly drawn characters. Its vast canvas incorporates the lives of ordinary people and their most intimate struggles.

Rebecca Mead celebrates¬†George Eliot’s life, work and greatest novel, exploring through a mixture of literary biography, deep reading and personal memoir, how Middlemarch answers fundamental questions ¬†about life and love.
