Here's how the amazing thing went down:
☃️
I'm reading Mill on the Floss because I wanted to read a George Eliot novel and Middlemarch is huuuge.
☃️
I noticed the book was written in 1860. This was when Emily Dickinson was 30, around when she went into seclusion.
☃️
I wondered if Emily ever read this book? I've read all her letters etc. but I couldn't recall. Googled and I found out it's the only book she wrote her name in, and she spoke of it in several letters.
☃️
I came across this line in the novel and I realized this line very likely could have inspired her idea to compare hope to a bird in her poem "Hope is a thing with feathers."
☃️
I checked and because of her letters they can tell she read this book in 1862, and her famous poem about hope was written in 1862! This was super exciting to me but no one else seems to get it😂. I guess I'm a nerd.
☃️
I write and underline in my books! Do you? Is that a terrible thing to do? To me it makes it seem more loved. Someone tell me this is ok.😊

There is no greater blessing outside the blessings of God. Obedience is about desire. That which you desire most you will become obedient to. Jesus knew the only way to please God was to desire him above ALL other things. And for this pursuit of desire, He became obedient even unto death. Philippians 2:5-7 #WakingDesire #WakingEve 🍎 #WakingSleepingBeauty #GeorgeEliot #QOTD #GoodReads

Hello everyone! How's your Saturday going? I recently realized that I'm unknowingly collecting the books from the Penguin English Library collection. I think I have about 7 of them at the moment. These three here are classics that I have never read, but always wanted to. Have you read them?

"Uno dei pochi romanzi inglesi veramente per adulti." Virginia Woolf su Middlemarch, di George Eliot 😎
La nostra autrice del venerdì in realtà si chiamava Mary Anne Evans. Usò uno pseudonimo maschile per essere presa sul serio ed evitare che i suoi romanzi fossero liquidati come libri "per signore", e quindi letteratura minore. Vi ricorda qualcosa? 🌊
Illustrazione di Pierre Mornet.

It’s amazing that this is Eliot’s first novel, but then she was a writer already fully in command of her craft before she’d even started writing. Adam Bede is very delicately crafted, a simple bucolic tale akin to what Thomas Hardy would construct; she wanted to portray reality just as it is—complex. I read she disdained the caricature of the underclasses that Dickens presented, though he actually adored Adam Bede himself and called the experience of reading it ‘an epoch’ in his life—he wrote her fan mail. Eliot’s people are more nuanced; they are neither wholly bad or good. And she cares for them. Certain currents they cannot control lead them through life to make decisions towards disaster. Class is important here, but so is education and social understanding. Adam, strong and decent, gains a humble sort of education and can understand the importance of ‘staying in one’s lane’ socially; he won’t be manipulated by the gentry. But women are never so lucky. And then the writing. You read Eliot for her piercing philosophy, I think. She is my teacher. From her very first sentence she promises, with ‘ink as her mirror’, to show you the past as it was. I think she was writer who went beyond her Victorian peers in many ways with her considerations of the novelistic form itself, so Modern, she is linked with Woolf in my mind;—she stops her story, the narrator considers what’s going on and what’s happening with this form of Realism and the characters. Eliot aimed to invoke reality following the Dutch painters. And she truly has. It is a novel to be challenged by, certainly, (the dialect grows on you) but it’s worth it. Fantastic. (Doesn’t surpass Mill on the Floss, however.)
