Product Details


Middlemarch, the magnificent book which with all its imperfections is one of the few English novels written for grown-up people.”
—Virginia Woolf

“The most profound, wise and absorbing of English novels . . . and, above all, truthful and forgiving about human behaviour.”
—Hermione Lee

“No Victorian novel approaches Middlemarch in its width of reference, its intellectual power, or the imperturbable spaciousness of its narrative…I doubt if any Victorian novelist has as much to teach the modern novelists as George Eliot…No writer has ever represented the ambiguities of moral choice so fully”.
—V. S. Pritchett

“Middlemarch is probably the greatest English novel.”
—Julian Barnes

“It is possible to argue that Middlemarch is the greatest English novel.”
—A. S. Byatt


“Certainly the greatest [English] novel.”
—Martin Amis
