Adam Bede, the first novel written by George Eliot (the pen name of Mary Ann Evans), was published in 1859. It was published pseudonymously, even though Evans was a well-published and highly respected scholar of her time. The novel has remained in print ever since and is regularly used in university studies of 19th-century English literature.

Her novels include Adam Bede (1859), The Mill on the Floss (1860), Silas . Eliot artfully takes this opportunity to connect the principles of her realism with a certain type of religious attitude.

Her novels include Adam Bede (1859), The Mill on the Floss (1860), Silas Marner (1861), Middlemarch (1871–1872), and Daniel Deronda (1874–1876). She imagines the reader exclaiming that her portrayal of a certain character called Mr. Irwine, rector of Broxton, presents him as little better than a pagan! 1 She retorts that as a novelist she wishes to avoid refashioning life and character after her own liking ; rather, she says, my strongest effort is to avoid any such arbitrary picture, and to give a faithful.

George Eliot's reception as a writer has been chequered from the start. Prejudice followed the reluctant revelation of her real identity as a woman, and she suffered from critical neglect at the start of the twentieth century, before a post-war renaissance of interest finally established her as one of the most powerful and accomplished of British novelists. Views of Mary Ann Evans, the woman behind the pseudonym, have always been controversial: castigated during her own time for sexual impropriety with a married man, accused by male 'friends' of being an overly intellectual 'man-woman', rejected by twentieth-century feminists for the opinions expressed in her essay 'Silly Novels by Lady Novelists', she is a figure for our own times as much as for her own. Focusing on three of Eliot's most influential and widely-read 'Midlands' novels, Lucie Armitt traces the effect of recent critical interpretations upon the reception and teaching of Eliot's work, as well as revisiting some of the perspectives offered by original reviewers and early critics. Class, gender and ideology all come under scrutiny, as do Eliot's central fictive themes of currency, circulation, sensuality and the voice. A variety of theoretical positions are reflected in the material selected for discussion, including post-structuralism, feminism, Marxism and psychoanalysis. Clear explication of these discourses is offered, combined with informative and detailed readings of primary extracts as illustrations.
