Silas Marner - George Eliot (Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations)















Considered by some as enchanting as a fairy tale and in some ways as simple in its approach, George Eliot's Silas Marner extends well beyond such a sphere. The text focuses on the evils of religion and society, both of which ostracize those they do not understand. Study the novel through the work of some of the most respected critics on the subject.
