Her hand and wrist were so finely formed that she could wear sleeves not less bare of style than those in which the Blessed Virgin appeared to Italian painters; and her profile as well as her stature and bearing seemed to gain the more dignity from her plain garments, which by the side of provincial fashion gave her the impressiveness of a fine quotation from the Bible--or from one of our elder poets--in a paragraph of to-day's newspaper.
She was usually spoken of as being remarkably clever, but with the addition that her sister Celia had more common-sense. Nevertheless Celia wore scarcely more trimmings; and it was only to close observers that her dress differed from her sister's, and had a shade of coquetry in its arrangements; for Miss Brooke's plain dressing was due to mixed conditions, in most of which her sister shared.
The pride of being ladies had something to do with it: the Brooke connections, though not exactly aristocratic, were unquestionably "good:" if you inquired backward for a generation or two, you would not find any yard-measuring or parceltying forefathers--any thing lower than an admiral or a clergyman; and there was even an ancestor discernible as a Puritan gentleman who served under Cromwell but afterward conformed, and managed to come out of all political troubles as the proprietor of a respectable family estate.
Young women of such birth, living in a quiet country house, and attending a village church hardly larger than a parlor, naturally regarded frippery as the ambition of a huckster's daughter. Then there was well-bred economy, which in those days made show in dress the first item to be deducted from when any margin was required for expenses more distinctive of rank. Rossamond unicyending in despair. Her most powerful novel, even if it is not inspired or the most harmoniously constructed, is the last in which the activity of her courageous, ever moving mind has been expressed in terms of scenes and figures family to herself and thus endowed with artistic reality.
The reaction to the novel has been a mixed one. Contemporary reviewers, in general, admired it four its life likeness for its characters which they felt were very true to life. In Middle march, the novelist returns once again to the English Midlands in which her girlhood had been passed and which had fertilized her imagination. The action takes place in Middle march or in localities close to it like Tipton Grange. Lowick manour Freshitt Hall, etc.
George Eliot is once again on familiar grounds and Midland scenes and sights have been realistically and feelingly sketched. The time of action of the novel is the period immediately preceding the reform Act of What happens in Middle march was happening in provincial society all over England.
Contemporary political and social problems are harmonized with private and personal life. The canvas of Middle march is a crowded one. It is a long novel running into over eight hundred minutely printed pages in the penguin edition. There is a host of characters, so many that all of them cannot even be named in the space. The main characters may be divided into four groups. The first one is Brooks — consisting of Mr.

As the title suggest, the novel gives us a realistic, vivid and comprehensive picture of provincial life of England. The picture is such that if there is any hero in the novel it is the society of Middle march. The novelist remembers her early girlhood and this gives the picture of truthfulness and vividness of her portrait of provincial life. The action in the novel takes place in Middle march or the neighboring parishes of Tipton, Lawic or Freshets.
A host of characters belonging to every profession, age group and walk of life have been brought in, and through their action and interactions life in a limited region Middle march and its environs has been faithfully recorded. The limited isolated community has certain well marked characteristics. Everything new or transformation is seen with suspension.
Railways which are yet distant and far off are regarded as a threat to the agriculture and their conservative life style, class distinction are taken for granted and every class carries with it, its own privileges class difference protects a person, even when he or she behaves in a way inappropriate for the class to which he or she belongs shields her effectively. It never goes away from the mind of Mr. Brooke, or anybody else that his activities in favour of the reform Bill could work in the direction of reducing his hereditary privileges as a land owner.
Nor does Lydgate see the slightest incongruity between his professional ambitions, his deep interest in science, and his traditional way of life. In this society manly was everything.
