Summary
George Eliot’s first full-length novel, Adam Bede, is a profound rendering of nineteenthcentury English pastoral life.This timeless story of seduction and betrayal follows the virtuous carpenter Adam Bede, whose world is soon disrupted when the all-toobeautiful Hetty betrays him for another villager. Her actions precipitate a turmoil of tragic events that shake the very foundations of their serene rural community. Eliot’s gift for leisurely and lyrical prose is in full effect here and her insight into human emotion and complexity is unrivalled.

Ever a fan of Eliot's prose. I do feel a little disappointed with the lack of agency her female characters seem to have in thus novel, but I think overtime Eliot renders a subtle feminist critique. I'm always amazed with the way Eliot threads the needle, making insignificant bystanders pivotal anecdotes, the way she can turn and reiterate a phrase and capture panoramas of an entire community of people.
