Introduction and Notes by R.T. Jones, Honorary Fellow of the University of York.
- York Notes , designed for English literature, aim to stimulate ideas and thought-provoking questions, helping the reader to think independently about the text being studied. A summary of the text, author biographies, commentaries and hints for study are all included.
Although the shortest of George Eliot’s novels, Silas Marner is one of her most admired and loved works. It tells the sad story of the unjustly exiled Silas Marner – a handloom linen weaver of Raveloe in the agricultural heartland of England – and how he is restored to life by the unlikely means of the orphan child Eppie.
Silas Marner is a tender and moving tale of sin and repentance set in a vanished rural world and holds the reader’s attention until the last page as Eppie’s bonds of affection for Silas are put to the test.
