SILAS MARNER BY GORGE ELIOT

capitulos de daniel 10 11 12
The parallels between the novel’s two pivotal events are further developed in this section.
Like the theft, Eppie’s arrival again drives Silas to interrupt a public gathering in a dramatic fashion, this time at the Red House rather than the Rainbow.
Marner was waiting for the New Year's Eve bell when he froze in his doorway, allowing Eppie to enter his life sixteen years before, and there were no bells in Lantern Yard.
Ultimately, Chapter 17 is a bitter account of the Casses' fortune and the fortune of others of their class, that people always are nonconformist with this life.
Historical background
Was published in 1891, mid-point in Eliot´s career
A brief plot summary...
SILAS MARNER SHOWS THE INDUSTRALIZATION DRAMATICALLY TRANSFORMED IN THE XIX CENTURY AND THE LACK OF FAITH IN GOD AND SOCIETY
Silas tells Eppie how much he loves her, and says the money has simply been “kept till it was wanted for you.”
An analysis based on the theory above
parte de daniel.... :)
Novelist George Eliot, a pen name for Mary Ann Evans
Subeditor for The Westminster.
She wrote several novels
That explored aspects of human psychology, including The Mill on the Floss and Silas Marner.
Epic works like: Middlemarch and Daniel Deronda
*Kind of rustic realistic
*Prevaling pastoral styles
The pastoral genre is...
The country-oriented life of the working classes represented in either poetry or prose and was popularized throughout the eighteen century by poets like nineteenth century by poets like William Wordsworth and Thomas Gray.
Many of her contemporaries...
Disolained Eliot´s depictions of such "poor, stupid, well-high despicable"
Silas's situation is much the opposite: he lives a life marked by unchanging labor and the slow accumulation of money, a life in which change is hard to imagine.
*For Silas, labor has come to mean nothing more than a way to collect gold coins, while, for the Casses, labor is a completely foreign concept altogether.
*. We have already had a taste, from the very first words of the book, of the character of the wandering tradesmen, like Marner, who live lives of alienation and solitude

Pro
Con
In Silas Marner the robbery of Marner's gold cannot remain a secret forever. It will out. Dunstan's disappearance, too, will out. His famous luck, it seems, ran out sixteen years ago.
Eppie tells Godfrey and Nancy that she does not want to leave her father, nor does she want to become a lady. Godfrey insists that he has a claim on Eppie and confesses that he is her father.
He says he noticed that Eppie took a dislike to him when he confessed that he was her father, and he decides that it must be his punishment in life to be disliked by his daughter. Godfrey tells Nancy that he is grateful, despite everything, to have been able to marry her, and vows to be satisfied with their marriage.
• Conflict of class
• George Eliot has entwined and balanced the destinies of Marner, Eppie, Godfrey and Nancy.

AN AUTHOR´S BRIEF BIOGRAFY
I like not only to be loved, but also to be told that I am loved... GOERGE ELIOT
• NAME: George Eliot
• OCCUPATION: Journalist, Author
• BIRTH DATE: November 22, 1819 Chilvers Coton, England
• DEATH DATE: December 22, 1880 London, England
• ORIGINALLY: Mary Ann Evans
• AKA: Marian Evans

In 1851, she met the philosopher George Henry Lewes. Lewes was already married, but she spent the next 20 years of her life with him
*Eliot opens Silas Marner by immediately distancing the novel from its readers.
* The characters behave according to a rustic belief system that is distant and alien to us.
*His rejection of community coincides with his loss of faith, and thus, in a sense, his faith in his fellow man has died along with his faith in God.

Silas Marner, a linen-weaver of this sort, lives in a stone cottage near a deserted stone-pit in the fictional village of Raveloe.
* “Our consciousness rarely registers the beginning of a growth within us any more than without us: there have been many circulations of the sap before we detect the smallest sign of the bud.”
* Lacking a nurturing mother figure.
*Desire to form a real family.


His devastation at the loss of his money is evident, and it inspires sympathy in his audience at the tavern.
For Silas, is understandably disoriented by the appearance of Eppie. He continues to associate her with his gold and believes.
However, whereas the gold isolated Silas, Eppie becomes a bridge between him and the rest of the world
Eliot, always uncompromising in her moral judgments, presents Godfrey’s cruelty as the natural result of his dishonesty and cowardice
Silas’s decision to keep Eppie has great positive consequences for him, bringing him companionship and redemption
Shaken but with Godfrey's moral quandary finally revealed, they decide that although they cannot raise Eppie as their own child, they can at least take her into their home and provide for her as they feel they ought to
