Hailed for its sympathetic and exact rendering of nineteenth-century English pastoral lifestyles, Adam Bede was once George Eliot’s first full-length novel and a bestseller from the instant of booklet. Eliot herself known as it “a nation story—full of the breath of cows and odor of hay.” Adam Bede is an earnest and virtuous wood worker who's betrayed by way of his love, Hetty Sorrel, but silly dairymaid who's seduced through a clumsy younger villager. The sour, tragic results of her activities shake the very foundations in their serene rural community.

While Adam Bede represents a undying tale of seduction and betrayal, it's also a deeper, impassioned meditation at the irrevocable outcomes of human activities and on ethical development and redemption via suffering.
