Adam Bede Audiobook

Adam Bede

Author: George Eliot Narrator: Jill Tanner Release Date: January 2016

With an Introduction and Notes by Doreen Roberts University of Kent at Canterbury 'Examine your words well, and you will find that even when you have no motive to be false, it is a very hard thing to say the exact truth, even about your immediate feelings...' Adam Bede (1859), George Eliot's first full-length novel, marked the emergence of an artist to rank with Scott and Dickens. Set in the English Midlands of farmers and village craftsmen at the turn of the eighteenth century, the book relates a story of seduction issuing in 'the inward suffering which is the worst form of Nemesis'. But it is also a rich and pioneering record - drawing on intimate knowledge and affectionate memory - of a rural world that we have lost. The movement of the narration between social realism and reflection on its own processes, the exploration of motives, and the constant authorial presence all bespeak an art that strives to connect the fictional with the actual.

Adam Bede Audiobook

Adam Bede

Author: George Eliot Narrator: Hannah Gordon Release Date: September 2007

A semi-philosophical fable. Our hero, a carpenter, loves Hetty Sorel, but she loves Arthur Donnithorne, a local squire. This story of a love triangle quickly progresses to themes altogether much darker, such as: who has the right to determine who lives and who dies? Adam Bede explores different morals, yet, it does not pass ultimate judgement on the actions of its characters. Praised for achieving something beyond the realms of Realism, Eliot's first published novel tackles difficult subjects such as bastardization and infanticide, with empathy and tact.

He masterfully plays with a wide array of voices and accents and has since then produced over 500 audiobooks.

She is best known as a novelist and poet, and her works often depict the Victorian era and the rural society. George Eliot wanted to describe the life of ordinary people. She was fascinated by the simplicity of country life and wanted to represent it realistically. Some of her works were also politically orientated as she wanted to draw attention to the social outsiders and people from small towns. 'Adam Bede', 'The Mill on the Floss' and 'Felix Holt, the Radical' are only a small part of the huge literary legacy she left behind.

Daniel Deronda

Author: George Eliot Narrator: Jill Tanner Release Date: June 2016

Gwendolen Harleth gambles her happiness when she marries a sadistic aristocrat for his money. Beautiful, neurotic, and self-centred, Gwendolen is trapped in an increasingly destructive relationship, and only her chance encounter with the idealistic Deronda seems to offer the hope of a brighter future. Deronda is searching for a vocation, and in embracing the Jewish cause he finds one that is both visionary and life-changing. Damaged by their pasts, and alienated from the society around them, they must both discover the values that will give their lives meaning. George Eliot's powerful novel is set in a Britain whose ruling class is decadent and materialistic, its power likely to be threatened by a politically emergent Germany. The novel's exploration of sexuality, guilt, and the will to power anticipates later developments in fiction, and its linking of the personal and the political in a context of social and economic crisis gives it special relevance to the dominant issues of the twenty-first century.
