The story of a beautiful country girl's seduction by the local squire and its bitter, tragic sequel is an old and familiar one which George Eliot invests with peculiar and haunting power.

A bestseller from the moment of publication, Adam Bede, although on one level a rich and loving re-creation of a small community shaken to its core, is more than a charming, faultlessly evoked pastoral. However mucy the reader may sympathize with Hetty Sorrel and identify with Arthur Donnithorne, her seducer, and with Adam Bede, the man Hetty betrays, it is George Eliot's creation of the distant aesthetic whole, the complex, multifarious life of Hayslope, which so grips the reader's imagination. As Stephen Gill comments: "Reading the novel is a process of learning simultaneously the world of Adam Bede and the world of Adam Bede".
