According to V.S. Pritchett, 'No Victorian novel approaches Middlemarch in its intellectual power, or the imperturbablespaciousness of its narrative... I doubt if any Victorian novelist has as much to teach the modern novelists as George Eliot... No writerhas ever represented the ambiguities of moral choice so fully.'Unabridged Audiobook read by Nadia May.
George Eliot, the pen name of Mary Ann, or Marion, Evans (1819-1880), was the author of several novels including Silas Marner. Middlemarch is considered not only her finest work, but one of the greatest English novels of the 19th century.
