19 Mar 2021  |  wp.coventry.domains
The article discusses the novel 'Middlemarch' by George Eliot, focusing on the themes of expectations versus reality, particularly in the context of the protagonist Dorothea Brooke's marriage and her plans for housing improvements. It explores Eliot's use of space and place in the novel, drawing parallels between Dorothea's architectural ambitions and the author's own creation of the fictional town of Middlemarch. The article references various literary critiques and theories to analyze the novel's treatment of social space and the hierarchical nature of space as a framework of power. It also touches upon George Eliot's life, her pen name's significance, and her attempt to separate herself from the conventions of female literature of her time.
