Adam Bede Overview

Adam Bede is a nineteenth novel by George Eliot (pen name of Mary Ann Evans). While this was the first novel penned by Eliot, it was published posthumously. Adam Bede follows the lives of several characters living in the rural English countryside surrounding the village of Hayslope, in Northern England. The story, set in 1799, follows a love "rectangle" involving Adam Bede, Captain Arthur Donnithorne, Hetty Sorrel, and Dinah Morris. This pastoral novel incorporates a great deal of imagery and symbolism and explores themes of class differences, women's roles in society, romance, love, and betrayal.
