Description

Dorothea Brooke is an ardent idealist who represses her vivacity and intelligence for the cold, theological pedant Casaubon. One man understands her true nature: the artist Will Ladislaw. But how can love triumph against her sense of duty and Casaubon's mean spirit? Meanwhile, in the little world of Middlemarch, the broader world is mirrored: the world of politics, social change, reforms; betrayal, greed, blackmail, ambition and disappointment. Dorothea Brooke is an outstanding heroine; Middlemarch is filled with characters that are vivid and true, comic and moving. It is one of the greatest novels in the English language.

Professional reviews

"Juliet Stevenson is unmatched in her narration of George Eliot's sweeping novel, which puts a lens to the fictitious English town of Middlemarch. Eliot's complex plot takes the listener into various households and lives, revealing scandal, secret longings, and unexpected ties. Stevenson's pleasant, friendly voice makes this relatively lengthy audiobook a listening delight. She enhances the narrative passages through her consistent enthusiasm and ease of language. Capturing the voices of Eliot's characters adeptly, Stevenson shifts flawlessly from gruff elderly bachelors to flirtatious young women. She displays a keen ability for a range of British accents, perfectly sorting the servants from the aristocracy and everyone in between. Stevenson's execution heralds the triumph of female spirit that Eliot embodies within this literary classic. D.M.W. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
