N Novel E Eliot

Discussion Questions for Middlemarch: Character Perspectives and the Evolution of Romance Character Perspectives Eliot’s examination of the romantic relationship takes on multiple perspectives, ranging from the social to the psychological to the scientific. For example, take this example of the introduction of Dorothea. It’s plays more towards the psychological rendition of Dorothea – her thoughts and beliefs in context of her own individual experiences. … in his niece Dorothea it glowed alike through faults and virtues, turning sometimes into impatience of her uncle’s talk or his way of “letting things be” on his estate, and making her long all the more for the time when she would be of age and have some command of money for generous schemes.
