Text Silas Marner The Weaver of Raveloe

Silas Marner The Weaver of RaveloeGirl he adopts is entwined with Godfrey Cass son of the village Suire who like Silas is trapped by his past Silas Marner George Eliot's favourite of her novels combines humour rich symbolism and pointed social criticism to create an unsentimental but affectionate portrait of rural lifeThis text uses the Cabinet edition revised by George Eliot in 1878 David Carroll's introduction is complemented by the original Penguin Classics edition introduction by D LeavisMary Ann Evans 1819 80 began her literary career as a translator and A slight subtle and subversive fable a post Christian novel absurdly perfect in its balance and symbols Filled with teasing humour and very careful intimate momentsYet because of that it seems unkind to even discuss it since it is barely possibly to do so without revealing great chunks of plotAs a very young woman George Eliot was a person of severe and earnest Christian faith the pursuit of which caused her to abandon it still young she fell out with her father over her refusal to go to Church eventually they came up with a compromise she would attend Church but not take communion and that compromise seems to me to be at the centre of this novel Eually I just reread Frankenstein and the two share a lot both are centrally about parent child relationships and perhaps the failure of many families to achieve effective Eliotian compromises Nature nurture adoption and the nature of parenthood are key concerns in both books as are character the uintessential Victorian theme Here Eliot shows us the perfection of the balance she constructs into the story the characters are consistent and drive behaviours but those behaviours which are moral failings in one set of circumstances turn out to be virtues in another and the reverse is also true setting up a balance between the weaver of the title and the son of the Suire The Former's obsessive clingyness makes him a miser in the first part of the book but when his golden guineas are replaced by a golden haired child we see the same character trait lead him to become a careful and attentive father The Suire's son's easy going reliance on chance gets him exactly what he wants without ever having to work for it but denies him that which he realises that he wants than casual wealth and a pretty socially desirable wife The child who says that she doesn't want to see change and wants everything to stay the same is naturally the agent of transformationI'm struck most by the post Christian implications of the novel despite the formal Christian observance of the characters Christianity here is a collection of words and rituals devoid of any meaning to the characters D Leavis in the bonus introduction that this edition has points out the division between faith and works between two of the suire's sons but this doesn't I feel go far enough Christianity here is a collection of scraps without meaning practised without understanding despite the presence of Preachers chapel church vicars regular attendance and prayer books none of which has anything to do with what characters actually do or believeInstead we see the dominating presence of the Genius loci which for once are not entirely hostile The titular Marner is a weaver working away with his loom like a spider in his web he catches a child but instead of consuming it as a good spider ought he is consumed and transformed by it a process which like Eliot's childhood compromise brings him into community Community Eliot says is alone what sustains the Church it's theology and history are nothings meaningless to everybody nobody not even the vicar understands what baptism and christening are Apparently the dissenting Christianity that Marner first practises in his Northern Chapel is an entirely different religion to the Church of England Christianity practised in the rural shire later in the story Different gods preside So
