George Eliot's Silas Marner by Kathrin Ehlen Summary

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject German Studies - Comparative Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Paderborn (Germanistik und vergleichende Literaturwissenschaft), course: Europaischer Realismus, language: English, abstract: George Eliot's Silas Marner, "that charming minor master piece" (in Eliot 252) as F. R. Lewis calls it, was published in 1861 by John Blackwood. Her publisher explains: "Silas Marner sprang from her childish recollection of a man with a stoop and an expression of face that led her to think that he was an alien from his fellows" (Eliot VII). This man was a weaver like Silas Marner. In making him the protagonist of her novel, George Eliot emphasizes his strangeness by adding short-sightedness and cataleptic fits to set him off from the people around him. The difficult process of this outsider's integration into society is the theme of the novel..."

Silas Marner in Modern Language by N.A Summary

An Old Best-Seller Refreshed for the 21st Century. Silas Marner, a weaver, had been betrayed by his best friend and the woman Marner loved. He sought refuge in a new community and turned his affections from human beings to the accumulation of gold. Since he was friendless in the new community, he became an object of superstition and speculation -- until a orphaned infant was left at his door. As we know today, the best rehabilitation can come from having somebody to love, to care for. The circumstances of life robbed Marner of his accumulated wealth and left him with only the orphan as the object of his affections. The warm story that follows tells a tale familiar to most parents, how having a child transforms lives, focusing our concerns on the new life and away from ourselves. This book has often been assigned reading in literature classes, but students struggle with the original's quaint language and difficult sentence structure. This version has been adapted into modern English to make it much more accessible to the modern reader. It is an old best-seller refreshed for a 21st Century audience.

Silas Marner and Two Short Stories by George Eliot Summary

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.

Silas Marner by Eliot George Summary

The novel is set in the early years of the 19th century. Silas Marner, a weaver, is a member of a small Calvinist congregation in Lantern Yard, a slum street in an unnamed city in Northern England. He is falsely accused of stealing the congregation's funds while watching over the very ill deacon. Two clues are given against Silas: a pocket knife, and the discovery in his own house of the bag formerly containing the money. There is the strong suggestion that Silas' best friend, William Dane, has framed him, since Silas had lent his pocket knife to William shortly before the crime was committed.

At the beginning of the novel, the protagonist, Silas, loses his friends, his faith, and his fiancé when framed by robbery. Exiled, he moves from Lantern Yard to the idyllic English country of Raveloe, an agricultural community. There, it replaces people and human interaction with money.

Dunstan, the son of the squire, had been in the business of blackmailing his older brother Godfrey. However, when the money fell short, he offered to sell Godfrey's horse, Wildfire. He ended up killing the horse before handing it over and receiving the money, which led him to steal from Silas. On New Year's Eve, leaving his door open, Silas gets an unlikely visitor. A little girl, having left her dying mother's arms, enters her house.Silas, waking up from a trance, at first thinks that the child is his gold returned to him. Seeing the tracks in the snow and then discovering the body, Silas goes to Cass's house to find the doctor.
