Silas Marner tells the vivid tale of a reclusive miser who finds redemption through the love of an abandoned child. Like many of the other works of George Eliot (the pen name of the novelist Mary Anne Evans), it makes poignantly real the folkways, charms, and perils of rural English life, while exploring universal themes—wealth and poverty, greed and love, the nature of happiness—with penetrating psychological insight. “The book remains a wonder...because it is such a tight and finely woven tapestry,” says Chris Bohjalian in his Introduction. “No material is wasted, no threads are left dangling. There is a reason for every word.” Both a rich moral drama and an evocative reading experience, Silas Marner reamins one of Eliot’s best-loved works.

This Modern Library Paperback Classics edition includes newly commissioned explanatory endnotes.
