Silas Marner

“Silas Marner: The Weaver of Raveloe” is a dramatic novel by George Eliot, her most sophisticated treatments of her attitude to religion.
Silas Marner is a member of a small Calvinist congregation in Lantern Yard, a slum street in an unnamed city in Northern England. He is falsely accused of stealing the congregation's funds and is cast out of Lantern Yard by his treacherous friend William.
Marner heads south to the Midlands and settles near the village of Raveloe, where he lives as a recluse, existing only for work and the gold he has hoarded from his earnings.
He accumulates a small fortune only to have it stolen. Despite these misfortunes, he finds his faith and virtue restored.

Quotes

    Mariam Atefhas quoted3 months ago
    brought a vague exulting sense, for which the grown men could as little have found words as the children, that something great and mysterious had been done for them in heaven above and in earth below, which they were appropriating by their presence.
