  • 150th ANNIVERSARY EDITION WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY ZADIE SMITH

    Discover one of the most admired, best loved and influential novels in the history of English literature. The perfect long read to lose yourself in.

    'If we had a keen vision and feeling of all ordinary human life...'

    Dorothea is bright, beautiful and rebellious. Lydgate is the ambitious new doctor in town. Both of them long to make a positive difference in the world. But their stories do not proceed as expected and both they, and the other inhabitants of Middlemarch, must struggle to reconcile themselves to their fates and find their places in the world.

    Middlemarch contains all of life: the rich and the poor, the conventional and the radical, literature and science, politics and romance, but above all it gives us a vision of what lies within the human heart.
