Six classes are scheduled to make steady progress through this great English novel. It was written by a woman—Mary Ann Evans— who found it necessary to adopt a male pen name, George Eliot. “Middlemarch” (1874) is an 880 page novel, a narrative, with Dorothea Brooke at its center. Ms. Brooke pursues a full life. Vital questions are posed, like: How essential to fulfillment are marriage, religion, independence, and knowledge? Obtain the Penguin Classics edition and before the first class, read the “Prelude” and “Book One: Miss Brooke.” Together participants can do this, and enjoy an unforgettable reading experience!
