Virginia Woolf famously called Middlemarch "one of the few English novels written for grownup people"--a judgment so often quoted that it is rarely examined. But we will test Woolf's evaluation through a lively discussion of this vast novel's four intricately connected plots, peopled with a diverse caste of characters who experience romance, marriage, loss, intrigue, sudden changes in fortune. Finally, we will explore how Middlemarch dramatizes Eliot's compassionate understanding of the complexity of human nature that is as applicable to us today as it was at the time of the novel's creation in 1871.
