Silas Marner, George Eliot

Silas Marner

“Silas Marner: The Weaver of Raveloe” is a dramatic novel by George Eliot, her most sophisticated treatments of her attitude to religion.
Silas Marner 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 and is cast out of Lantern Yard by his treacherous friend William.
Marner heads south to the Midlands and settles near the village of Raveloe, where he lives as a recluse, existing only for work and the gold he has hoarded from his earnings.
He accumulates a small fortune only to have it stolen. Despite these misfortunes, he finds his faith and virtue restored.
