    Reader I ask you what can be better than a long book full of good sentences? That was a rhetorical uestion of course—I think there is nothing better than good sentences following one on another and this book is full of them But Adam Bede also offers that extra ingredient readers generally can't resist intrigue The intrigue is centered on the curious nature of the rules of attraction which is no surprise as variations on the classic love triangle often feature in George Eliot's books However in Adam Bede the rules of attraction seem to stretch well beyond the usual three sided figure Instead we have a far complicated situation SB loves DM who loves AB who loves HS who loves AD Five isolated points There seems to be no way to bring them together no way to build them into a useful shape such as a house for example And yet Adam Bede who is at the centre of the problematic is a carpenter who is very good at calculating distances and angles and the correct weight of roof timbers Come on Adam we say encouragingly build that house Make it happenMeanwhile our mental business is carried on much in the same way as the business of the State a great deal of hard work is done by agents who are not acknowledged In a piece of machinery too I believe there is often a small unnoticeable wheel which has a great deal to do with the motion of the large obvious onesthe human soul is a very complex thingA little mental business a little adjustment of wheels and cogs and not forgetting some small heart related 'agents' their owners hardly know exist has to be carried out by several of the characters before Adam's house can be built It is a very interesting process to watch The human heart is a very complex thing indeed

    That feeling when you close a very very good novel after taking a lot of time to read it slowly over shifting seasons moods and circumstances The feeling of having lived among the characters suffered with them fought against the inevitable developments trying to force the words on the pages to change to avoid the fates that can't be avoidedThat feeling of accomplishment when the epilogue gives deep satisfaction a better love than the rushed first impression of the early pagesGeorge Eliot knows her trade and loves it and for the reader there is little left to be said except a deeply felt Thank You Madam for this masterpieceAdam and Dinah and Seth and the Poysers and Arthur and Mr Irwine are all well tucked into their happy lives so my last thoughts go to Hettie who was punished according to the moral compass of a deeply flawed society for being a young and uneducated sexual being Because of you Hettie I am reconciled with my own flawed times You would have fared better with your first love if you had been a young girl now and crime and pain and premature death would not have been your fate in my society We have a long way to go still but your fate shows me we have reached some justice tooTo the Hetties of the world you have a right to life and pleasure and support and no society building its virtue on shaming and blaming and suppressing women's autonomy and sexuality can ever be called the good old times

    So This is an old story and terribly familiarview spoiler Tess of the d'urbervilles is a variant of the same story hide spoiler

    The fact that George Eliot called this novel Adam Bede and not Hetty Sorrel proves that there is no justice in this worldThe novel itself Eliot’s first is a fairly uaint pastoral romance Everyone’s in love with the wrong person You get the picture The plot doesn’t really wear the novel’s weight well It just about breaches 600 pages and there is absolutely no need no needIt’s a pity that Adam Bede is such a meh tale considering that for the novel Eliot invented a character as complex and as loveable and as utterly tragic as Hetty Sorrel I adored Hetty and judging by most of the other reviews on here everyone else did as well Her story is just so completely harrowing which is impressive as most characters from Victorian literature really just go through itI have to admit that at points I really became fed up with this novel only for everything to pick up again when Hetty comes along But I’m also not going to recommend a 600 page long minor Victorian novel just because one character is good So I guess that’s that

    Adam Bede 1859 was George Eliot’s first novel preceded only by her short fiction collection Scenes of Clerical Life The novel was recognized as a masterpiece from the start The Times review stated that “the author takes rank among the masters of the craft” and describes “him” as possessing “genius of the highest order” Elizabeth Gaskell with North and South already behind her mournfully noted in a letter that “I have a feeling that it is not worth while trying to write when there are such books as Adam Bede”When I read Adam Bede for the first time I was just coming out of a life trauma though nothing uite as bad as the horrible event around which the plot turns fortunately The novel blew me away with the accuracy of its insights into shock and suffering and their psychological effects It was an immensely therapeutic readIt was interesting to revisit this novel at a calmer and objective moment with of a literary critical eye I loved it just as much as I did the first time round though for rather different reasons I read it almost back to back with Eliot’s later Felix Holt The Radical and it was fun to line the two up against one another There are several similarities The male protagonist of both is an intelligent partly self educated working class man—although Felix Holt has chosen the career of a craftsman rather than having it visited on him by birth—and both are the dutiful sons to two of the annoying mothers in fiction To be fair Lisbeth Bede has by way of redeeming tragic dignity than Mrs Holt but it would still be something of a toss up as to which you would least want to be trapped in a lift withMore seriously Adam Bede is as brilliant and socially nuanced and vivid a portrayal of a rural Midland village in 1799 as Felix Holt is of an election fevered rural Midland small town in 1832 Eliot knew of what she spoke; she had grown up in precisely the kind of rural society she wrote of here; and her fascinating short memoir of the origins of Adam Bede included as an appendix to the World’s Classics edition I used identifies her father Robert Evans an upwardly mobile former carpenter turned estate manager as one of the inspirations for her title character As ever with Eliot in addition to the personal plot of the novel—here unlike in Felix Holt stark and simple as a Greek tragedy—a larger social and uietly political narrative is at work One reason why the village setting works so well is that it can serve as a microcosm of English society generally in its class and religious distinctions We are never uite allowed to forget over that the novel takes place a decade after the most convulsive political event of the century the French Revolution This is an intensely class conscious novel as much so as Felix Holt in its wayThe cast list of Adam Bede is vast and supremely well marshalled In addition to Adam and his family the principal characters in the novel include the dashing vain young suire Arthur Donnithorpe; the worldly and worldly wise vicar Mr Irvine and his ueenly spirited old mother; a comfortably off farm couple the Poysers; and their two orphaned nieces the vain and pretty Hetty Sorrel and the charismatic and godly Dinah Morris Beyond these we also get a wider chorus made up the Poysers’ assorted servants and farm hands; the grander servants of the “big house;” assorted village ne’er do wells; the crotchety schoolmaster Bartle Massey; Adam’s colleagues in the carpenter shop Eliot assembles the entire village masterfully in the great set piece of Arthur’s twenty first birthday party which takes place immediately before the novel’s crisis with doom hanging heavily in the airThis element of Fate and foreshadowing is again reminiscent of Greek tragedy; and I don’t think this is coincidental Eliot read Sophocles’s Oedipus Rex shortly before beginning work on Adam Bede; and she makes Mr Irvine in the novel a reader of Sophocles and Aeschylus One great triumph of Adam Bede is its combination of the emotional power and universality of tragedy with the intricate historically precise socially embedded realism of the mature Victorian novel I could continue ad infinitum I can’t begin to do justice to the excellencies of this novel I haven’t even mentioned the fascination of Eliot’s portrayal of Dinah Morris the young Methodist lay preacher caught at a moment early in the Methodist movement when women did preach in some numbers an epilogue takes us down beyond 1803 when a ruling limited them to preaching solely to their own sex The characterization is superb in general aside from Dinah I loved in different ways Adam; Arthur; Hetty; Mr Irvine; Martin Poyser; and Seth Bede Adam’s brother And you get a lot of Eliot’s trademark humanistic moral wisdom and sympathy Her treatment of Arthur is exemplary in that regard; she doesn’t back pedal on his vanity and the appalling damage that he wreaks on all around him yet she doesn’t allow us—or even ultimately Adam—the easy option of condemning him without taking a good look at ourselves There are even some laughs in Adam Bede in defiance of Eliot’s reputation for high moral seriousness She took a while to creep up on me but by the end I was relishing the outrageous barbs of the sharp tongued super housewife Mrs Poyser especially when she turned them against the tyrannical Suire Donnithorne à bas les aristos and the misogynist Bartle Massey I particularly admired the way Eliot encapsulated her character in her physical tic of walking round knitting constantly “with fierce rapidity as if that movement were a necessary function like the twittering of a crab’s antennae”

    I believe this may be the most beautiful book I have ever read I felt both uplifted and emotionally drained when I finished The tragedy and the great beauty of George Eliot's writing I didn't read this edition mine was much older but the introduction of my edition uoted Charles Dickens as saying that reading Adam Bede was an epoch in his life and Alexandre Dumas called it the masterpiece of the century I'm happy to agree with them Most people say that Middlemarch is George Eliot's masterpiece That was tragic and beautiful as well but I was so much drawn into the characters of Adam Bede I loved them all even Hetty because even though they may have made bad choices we were allowed to see things from their perspective and gain an understanding of why they did what they did I love that about George Eliot Dickens' characters sometimes seem almost like caricatures because they are either so good or so evil I appreciate the humanity of Eliot In fact I understood Arthur Donnithorne all too well He so wants to be a good person and have people think well of him and yet he is weak when it really matters This is a silly analogy but I decided to make chocolate chip cookies one day while reading Adam Bede I knew I really shouldn't because I would eat too many and not be able to stop but when it came to the point I made them anyway and ate too many I realized how like Arthur that was He knew he shouldn't be doing what he was doing and he talked himself out of it many times but when it came to the point he still did itIt's interesting that although George Eliot personally seemed to have issues with the religion of her day she can talk about religion so beautifully in her books I realize I have used the word beautiful way too many times but oh if you read it you will understand The year the story takes place is 1799 but the year it was published was I believe 1856 There was a lot of religious fervor going on at that time People were searching and wanting to do what was right and were dissatisfied with the nation's religion even though there were many good and wonderful members of the clergy Who could not love Mr Irwine? And yet Dinah believed in so much I had ancestors in England around that time period who I believe felt the same way and that's why they were so open to hear of the restoration of the gospel from the Mormon missionaries who were sent thereMrs Poyser was an absolute gem I loved that she was able to tell off the Suire and hold her own with the woman hating Mr Massey I wanted to tell him off too I wish we could have heard why he hated women so much I was grateful that George Eliot put in an epilogue so we could see what happened to the characters who were missing at the end of the book This is an amazing book everyone should read it

    Because I was rereading David Copperfield during some of the time I was reading this I couldn’t help but compare the characters and situations of one book to the other for example the extremes between the adorable DoraHetty and the angelic AgnesDinah And though I know Eliot had reservations about Dickens’ works I see how she extends into realism a character like David Copperfield’s Emily Also interesting to me is that an arguably sensational theme of Adam Bede is an important theme of the Norwegian Knut Hamsun’s Growth of the Soil another book I was reading concurrentlyIf I'd read this as a young teenager my sympathies would've been with a minor character the younger brother Seth As it is I still have some of those residual feelings toward him helped by my agreeing with his comment on the last page which is opposed to the traditional view of his brother the eponymous hero The latter has left me with a vaguely irritated feeling though nothing he said beforehand bothered me With this statement of his though Eliot is following history; and her biggest strength in this her first full length novel is that of social historian


  8. says:

    Adam Bede is a story about love self deception religious feeling innocence and experience It would not be an unfit introduction to Eliot though Middlemarch is by far her superior novel I am awed by Eliot's psychological insight into human personality Her characters are some of the most vivid in all of literary history and her ability to penetrate to the very heart of human motivation is unrivaled She presents her story with wit and subtle sarcasm Take for instance this tongue in cheek comment Of course I know that as a rule sensible men fall in love with the most sensible women of their acuaintance see through all the pretty deceits of couettish beauty never imagine themselves loved when they are not loved cease loving on all proper occasions and marry the woman most fitted for them in every respect But even to this rule an exception will occur now and then in the lapse of centuries and my friend Adam was one Eliot's command of English is deeply impressive and this book is worth reading just for the beauty of the language But the story is uite interesting as well and you will come to care about and sympathize with the characters It is not a fast paced book and it will reuire an investment of time and intellect But it is well worth reading

    George Eliot’s masterpiece is Middlemarch but Adam Bede has always been my favorite Eliot novel I’m not sure why this is It might be because Bede was the first Eliot book I read I doubt this however because the first Austen book I read was Pride and Prejudice but my favorite Austen book is Persuasion I understand why Middlemarch is a masterpiece yet I find myself agreeing with Dumas pere in considering Bede to be the “masterpiece of the century”I first read Bede after watching the first part of a Masterpiece Theatre remember when Cooke hosted it? showing of the story I only saw the first part and it ended with the fight between Adam and Arthur where Adam knocks Arthur done and thinks he has killed the suire to be I had to know what happened next so I went out and brought the bookSince then I have read Bede far than I have read Middlemarch though I have never tracked down and brought the Masterpiece version of the story There is a beauty and simplicity about Bede and yet it is a complex and deep story It almost seems like a paradox but it is notI find myself wondering how this book was received in general when it was first published Like Scott’s Heart of the Midlothian this work concerns a woman a young girl who embarks on an ill advised affair and finds herself pregnant And yet Eliot’s use of this plot is far superior to Scott even to someone like me who considers Heart to be one of Scott’s best works if not his best work It is the use of this plot in Bede that make the book a masterpiece It must be due to the fact that Eliot is a woman and knows far about how much farmer’s niece would in fact know about her cycle She makes very good use of the word dreadIt’s true that the title character is the central character He is not a saint he is not perfection; he is good people perhaps a finer version of Othello One feels for him and he does have faults His blind love of Hetty and his uickness of temper Dinah too as a few faults and this stops her from being a total unlikable Mary Sue The reader knows what is best for these two characters long before they doIn many ways however the kennel of the story concerns Hetty and Arthur and far of Hetty It is interesting for the narrator always points out Hetty’s faults to the reader Hetty doesn’t seem like a particular nice or attractive person especially when compared to Dinah The narrator is right in pointing out that Hetty’s looks cause people to forgive and over look her other faults Despite Hetty’s petty ways and her inability to tender feeling both the narrator and the reader feel sympathy for her I hesitate to say like I don’t know even now if I like Hetty but I feel sorry for her Hetty does something stupid but she plays a high price Even before the modern era with our debates or discussions about single mothers and how or whether to make fathers responsible Eliot touches on it Constrained by the time she lived in Eliot cannot give it the graphic blow by blow that would be used today This restraint however makes the story are the tragic and touching Even in the darkness of the tale Eliot arranges to show the reader a degree of pity Hetty might feel alone due to the shame her family might cast her off but she is not truly alone At least not wholly There are helpful strangers and Dinah Of course the reader still knows that Hetty is not in a good place that society has by and large cast her off and has made no true provision for herEliot does not fall into the trap that other authors such as Hardy have We know that the relationship between Arthur and Hetty is consensual Further Arthur is treated far gently than Alec in Tess Perhaps this simplifies matters or cheapens the story as some critics have pointed out but I don’t think it does Arthur is close in age to Hetty 21 to her 17 Older educated but still young enough to make mistakes It should also be noted that both lovers are in essence orphans Because Arthur repents because he suffers somewhat he becomes likable He can’t fully save Hetty but he does not fully abandon her when he realizes what has happened If anything the book can be seen as a non flattering comment on society’s rigid rules despite the fact that Eliot does not make Hetty and Arthur spotless lambs Hetty is less likable but far real than say Hardy’s TessThe story of Arthur and Hetty shows how much and how little society has changedThe lovers are not the only winning feature of this novel There are wonderful descriptions and beautiful comments about people The seeds of Middlemarch are here There is a wonderful chapter about what makes a good clergyman and how things should be portrayed in literature Beautiful and thought provoking lines like “We are kinder to the brutes that love us than to the women that love us Is it because the brutes are dumb?” The reader is given a picture of time and place that passes before the eyes much like a movie

    Possibly 35I found the premise and some aspects of the book fascinating and the second half very gripping but as I often find with George Eliot I found it interesting than enjoyable and the pacing especially at the ending wasn't uite right for me Nonetheless I'm looking forward to reading George Eliot in future
