Adam Bede

With Annotated

ByGeorge Eliot

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
George Eliot's first full-length novel is the moving, realistic portrait of three people troubled by unwise love. Adam Bede is a hardy young carpenter who cares for his aging mother. His one weakness is the woman he loves blindly: the trifling town beauty, Hetty Sorrel, who delights only in her baubles—and the delusion that the careless Captain Donnithorne may ask for her hand. Betrayed by their innocence, both Adam and Hetty allow their foolish hearts to trap them in a triangle of seduction, murder, and retribution. Only in the lovely Dinah Morris, a preacher does Adam find his redemption. Addressing questions of morality and the role of women in society, Adam Bedee explores the dangers of relying on religious and social norms to govern destructive desires.
