Middlemarch: Penguin Classics Audiobook

Middlemarch: Penguin Classics

Author: George Eliot Narrator: Juliet Aubrey Release Date: September 2019

Brought to you by Penguin. This Penguin Classic is performed by Juliet Aubrey, who won the BAFTA for Best Actress for her role as Dorothea in the BBC serial Middlemarch. This definitive recording includes an Introduction by Rosemary Ashton. George Eliot's most ambitious novel is a masterly evocation of diverse lives and changing fortunes in a provincial community. Peopling its landscape are Dorothea Brooke, a young idealist whose search for intellectual fulfillment leads her into a disastrous marriage to the pedantic scholar Casaubon; the charming but tactless Dr Lydgate, whose marriage to the spendthrift beauty Rosamund and pioneering medical methods threaten to undermine his career; and the religious hypocrite Bulstrode, hiding scandalous crimes from his past. As their stories interweave, George Eliot creates a richly nuanced and moving drama, hailed by Virginia Woolf as 'one of the few English novels written for adult people'. (P) 2019 Penguin Audio

Silas Marner: Penguin Classics

Author: George Eliot Narrator: Jan Francis Release Date: September 2019

Brought to you by Penguin. This Penguin Classic is performed by Jan Francis, star of Just Good Friends. This definitive recording includes an Introduction by David Carroll. Wrongly accused of theft and exiled from a religious community many years before, the embittered weaver Silas Marner lives alone in Raveloe, living only for work and his precious hoard of money. But when his money is stolen and an orphaned child finds her way into his house, Silas is given the chance to transform his life. His fate, and that of the little girl he adopts, is entwined with Godfrey Cass, son of the village Squire, who, like Silas, is trapped by his past. Silas Marner, George Eliot's favourite of her novels, combines humour, rich symbolism and pointed social criticism to create an unsentimental but affectionate portrait of rural life.

The Lifted Veil Audiobook

The Lifted Veil

Author: George Eliot Narrator: Ghizela Rowe, Richard Mitchley Release Date: October 2020

Mary Anne Evans was born on 22nd November 1819 at Nuneaton in Warwickshire, England,As a child she was a committed reader and brimmed with intelligence. Her father felt that her lack of physical beauty might not bring her the best selection of suitors in marriage and therefore thought a good education, rarely afforded to women at the time, might be the best path for her.From the age of five to nine, she boarded with her sister at Miss Latham's school in Attleborough, and then Mrs. Wallington's school in Nuneaton, until she was thirteen, and it was to be Miss Franklin's school in Coventry until she was sixteen. In 1835 her mother died and she returned home to keep house for her father and her siblings, and with it the cessation of her formal education.Over the next decade she nurtured her literary ambitions but doubts on religious faith brought tensions with her father who was not enamored at the free-willed liberals she was associating with.Despite this her first major literary work was completing an English translation of Strauss's 'The Life of Jesus' in 1846.Her father died in 1849 and Eliot was able to begin a new life. After a few months in Geneva she moved to London to work at the Westminster Review where she published many articles and essays. In 1851 Mary Anne or Marian, as she liked to be called, met George Henry Lewes, and in 1854 they moved in together; a somewhat scandalous situation as he was already married. Her view on literature had taken some time to coalesce but with the publication of parts of 'Scenes From A Clerical Life' in 1858 she knew she wanted to be a novelist. Under the pseudonym of George Eliot that we know so well 'Adam Bede' was published in 1859 followed by her other great novels; 'Mill on the Floss', 'Silas Marner' and 'Middlemarch'. Her talents also extended to both small canons of poetry and short stories.'The Lifted Veil' is a both a beautiful story and typical of Eliot's formidable powers of writing.George Eliot died on 22nd December 1880 at Chelsea in London. She was 61. She is buried at Highgate Cemetery.

Middlemarch Audiobook

Middlemarch

Author: George Eliot Narrator: Nadia May, Wanda Mccaddon Release Date: June 2011

Dorothea Brooke is a thoughtful and idealistic young woman determined to make a difference with her life. Enamored of a man whom she believes is setting this example, she unwittingly traps herself into a loveless marriage. Her parallel is Tertius Lydgate, a visionary young doctor from the city, whose passionate ambition to spread the new science of medicine to the village is complicated by his love for the wrong woman. Featuring a panoply of complex, brilliantly drawn characters from every walk of life, Eliot's masterpiece is a rich and teeming portrait of provincial life in Victorian England. Yet her characters' struggles to retain their moral integrity in the midst of temptation and tragedy are strikingly modern in their painful ironies. The incomparable psychological insight of Middlemarch was pivotal in the shaping of twentieth-century literary realism. "Nadia May makes [Middlemarch] come alive. She is in wonderful form as she slides from character to character, giving them their distinctiveness through intonation and pacing. May's voice is that of the genteel British woman, and it's the perfect thing for Eliot."—Library Journal
