George Eliot's third novel, "Silas Marner" (1861) is a powerful and moving tale about one man's journey from exile and loneliness to the warmth and joy of the family. The story opens as Silas Marner, falsely accused of theft, loses everything, including his faith in God. Embittered and alienated from his fellow man, he moves to the village of Raveloe, where he becomes a weaver. Taking refuge in his work, Silas slowly begins to accumulate gold--his only joy in life--until one day that too is stolen from him. Then one dark evening, a beautiful, golden-haired child, lost and seeing the light from Silas's cottage, toddles in through his doorway. As Silas grows to love the girl as if she were his own daughter, his life changes into something precious. But his happiness is threatened when the orphan's real father comes to claim the girl as his own, and Silas must face losing a treasure greater than all the gold in the world. This volume also includes two shorter works by Eliot--"The Lifted Veil", a dark Gothic fantasy about a morbid young clairvoyant, and "Brother Jacob", a deliciously satirical fable about a confectioner's apprentice.… (mais)

A quaint little fairy tale of a novella. Not particularly exciting but a nifty little moralistic tale about provincial early 19th century England. At least I can now claim that I’ve read a George Eliot novel. As for the two included short stories, I couldn't make it past the 10th page of either one. For aficionados only, I suppose. How could anyone subject high school students to this as required reading? ( )

An unusually satisfying story of redemption in the life of a miser whose greatest delight is in counting his gold each night after a day at his weaving loom. A little two-year-old girl whose mother lies dead in a ditch wanders into his hut in a snowstorm and radically alters his values and lifestyle. His door was open to her and his life was greatly enlarged and blessed. The little girl's father, who has never acknowledged her, remains childless and lives in deep regret and unhappiness. The author gives a very authentic description of life in a country village in the early years of the 19th century, not only in word pictures, but in the speech and mannerisms of the people. A story of fierce devotion between two very needy people who in finding each other, transform an ugliness into something of great beauty. ( )

A really lovely book.

Marner is a stranger in a town. He is an outcast who is accepted only because he is tremendously skilled as a weaver.

He doesn't go to church, since he was betrayed in his home country by his best friend and abandoned by his fiancee. So Marner decides he will no longer engage with people or believe in God. He will find joy in the money he makes, all gold coins.

But then someone steals the coins, and Marner discovers an abandoned blond baby girl in his house.

Eliot wrote an interesting piece on spirituality, religious and human morality. It is a surprisingly modern piece, that echoes what one guesses is the authors assessment of her own religous ambiguity. ( )
