Hailed for its sympathetic and actual rendering of nineteenth-century English pastoral existence, Adam Bede was once George Eliot’s first full-length novel and a bestseller from the instant of book. Eliot herself referred to as it “a state story—full of the breath of cows and smell of hay.” Adam Bede is an earnest and virtuous chippie who's betrayed via his love, Hetty Sorrel, an exquisite but silly dairymaid who's seduced by means of 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 progress and redemption via suffering.
