In this heartwarming classic by George Eliot, a gentle linen weaver named Silas Marner is wrongly accused of a heinous theft actually committed by his best friend. Exiling himself to the rustic village of Raveloe, he becomes a lonely recluse. Ultimately, Marner finds redemption and spiritual rebirth through his unselfish love for an abandoned child who mysteriously appears one day in his isolated cottage. Somber, yet hopeful, Eliot's realistic depiction of an irretrievable past, tempered with the magical elements of myth and fairy tale, remains timeless in its understanding of human nature and is beloved by every generation.

Originally published in 1861, this 2007 edition contains an introduction by Frederick R. Karl, a new afterword by Kathryn Hughes, a short biography of George Eliot, and bibliography. This is part of Hewitt's Lightning Literature & Composition curriculum. See Related Items below.
