Read Middlemarch Free read Î PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ð George Eliot George Eliot ð 2 Review Dine sociologico all'ambiente sociale il sottotitolo Studi di vita in provincia definisce da subito il contesto Al centro della storia è proprio l'immaginaria cittadina inglese di Middlemarch all'interno della uale si articolano i destini di uattro personaggi. Some discouragement some faintness of heart at the new real future which replaces the imaginary is not unusual and we do not expect people to be deeply moved by what is not unusual That element of tragedy which lies in the very fact of freuency has not yet wrought itself into the coarse emotion of mankind and perhaps our frames could hardly bear much of it If we had a keen vision and feeling of all ordinary human life it would be like hearing the grass grow and the suirrel s heart beat and we should die of that roar which lies on the other side of silence As it is the uickest of us walk about well wadded with stupidityWhen Alexandra suggested to participate in this year s alphabetical challenge of reading women I admit the prospect of finally reading Middlemarch for the E was the decisive element for me to embark on the journey and I had been keeping the novel aside as a precious reward to be touched if and only if I would manage to finish a demanding work project in time When that blissful moment came I couldn t have dreamt of a exuisite treat than reading this masterpiece of which I enjoyed every minute Although Virginia Woolf called it one of the few English novels written for grown up people reading this novel made me feel sixteen again catapulting me back into memories of spending hours of reading delight during school holidays in the small kitchen above the grocery store where my mother worked only having to interrupt reading to wash the dishes then plunging again into some fat Russian 19th century novel greedily gobbling up the sentences floating on cloud nine Isn t it odd how memory singles out and connects to some of our experiences as the most delightful ones of our lives of which we were barely aware when we were living them Needless to say books which are that overwhelming are rare and this novel is such one one that swallowed me whole only desiring to be in the book curling up with the characters I revelled in Eliot s prowess in bringing to life her wondrous characters and particularly in the strength of her women most of the men in the novel seem no match for the women at certain moments some sound like a tenor in an opera who s faint voice renders his nonetheless beautiful lines and alleged heroism at times perhaps somewhat implausible but all the human As so much has been written on this magnum opus I so far have only skimmed through a few of the magnificent hymns readers here have written to this so well loved book and hope to read them thoroughly now having finished the novel and the issues worth analysing seem boundless I feel it could easily feed my reading group s discussions for a year reading the novel a first time I soon sensed it out of my league to consider writing anything about it and so surrendered to reading instinctively plunging in naked and unarmed floating smoothly on Eliot s fabulous sentences the gentle waves of her wisdom If I would focus on one theme for further exploring in a second read it would be marriage as seen by Eliot to find out if and in which way her views concurred with or differed from the conventional ones in her time and what her views on relationships tell us today Young love making that gossamer web Subtle interlacings are swung are scarcely perceptible momentary touches of fingertips meetings of rays from blue and dark orbs unfinished phrases lightest changes of cheek and lip faintest tremors The web itself is made of spontaneous beliefs and indefinable joys yearnings of one life towards another visions of completeness indefinite trust And Lydgate fell to spinning that web from his inward self with wonderful rapidity As for Rosamond she was in the water lily s expanding wonderment at its own fuller life and she too was spinning industriously at the mutual webOne of the themes which propulses the finely spun narratives and intrigues Middlemarch has been compared to an intricate emotional spider web the omniscient authorial voice repeatedly using the web metaphor considering the recounting of the tale a task of unraveling certain human lots and seeing how they were woven and interwoven is the tension between reconciling the vows and demands of marriage and one s personal vocation in life a tension mostly conveyed by unfurling and paralleling the vicissitudes of two characters who precipitate themselves headlong into wedlock a state on which they both harbour illusions which seem to echo each other and which will turn out at odds with their highly idealistic vocations and ambitions in life We find the 19 year old Dorothea Brooke passionately wanting to devote herself to an scholarly clergyman many years her senior Edward Causabon seeking wisdom and enlightenment herself while the young doctor Tertius Lydgate dreams of a life of science to be venerated and supported in this dream by the dedicated wife he sees in the mayor s daughter Rosamond Vincy his old dreamland in which Rosamond Vincy appeared to be that perfect piece of womanhood who would reverence her husband s mind after the fashion of an accomplished mermaid using her comb and looking glass and singing her song for the relaxation of his adored wisdom alone Both will bump into bitter reality as in a sense for both marriage serves as a means to an end the only possible outcome might have been disillusion on the nature of marriage Dorothea finds her assistance unwelcome to her husband while Tertius learns a ravishing appearance can hide a disgraceful and to this reader appalling selfishness Their misfit marriages will eventually be counterpoised by a third wonderfully balanced relationship one of strong bonding based on ratio as well as emotions a couple building a future on what could be seen as fundamental resemblances and complementary differences complementarity far subtle painted by Eliot than in a simple traditional division of the gender roles Here is a relationship of mutual support and understanding for which both Dorothea and Tertius good natured but dreamers longed for in vain however the initial pangs of disenchantment for both will have uite different conseuences Eliot s presentation of what seems ideal marriage as a union of free spirited individuals united by true companionship as loving comrades struck me as rather progressive or modern for her times but I could be wrong in that assessment as well as touchingly relatable Reading Middlemarch to me not felt as escapism As Julian Barnes wrote in his essay A Life with Books Life and reading are not separate activities When you read a great book you don t escape from life you plunge deeper into it There may be a superficial escape into different countries s speech patterns but what you are essentially doing is furthering your understanding of life s subtleties paradoxes joys pains and truths Reading and life are not separate but symbiotic His words ring uintessentially true with regard to Middlemarch with its gorgeous gossamer prose the plethora of fascinating characters the manifold references to art the perceptive dictums wearing an aphoristic suit showing a tremendous insight into the human psyche its subtly humorous asides its wisdom and sympathy for humankind this brilliant novel might simply be a reader s dream a way of experiencing the harmony of spheres Following the thread to light and life Eliot is weaving reminded me that life in all its depth at times can be pure bliss
