Novel “Middlemarch” was published as a serial novel in eight parts, in 1871 and 1872, which came out every two months. Novel “Middlemarch” became most integrated and sweeping novel even nowadays, and was set as a study of provincial British life. Eliot worked on several different stories, starting with Lydgate and his trials as a young doctor; further she worked on Dorothea's story, writing the first ten chapters as they appear in the finished book with only this character and her world in mind. Later, Eliot decided to build-up a world around these two characters, and create a more detailed portrait of the town and its various inhabitants. Lydgate and Dorothea acted as the soul of the novel, as two somewhat similar figures. Both are similar in their unhappy marriages, their social strivings and the way in which they react to societal pressure.
When the novel first appeared it created a huge success for the writer and made Eliot as one of the greatest novelists in Britain. Her aim was to analyze recent political, social and economic threads through the novel. The characters and stories told within the novel are meant to show how people are affected by historical change and how progress happens in people's lives. Eliot manages to weave in the Catholic emancipation, the death of George IV, the dissolution of Parliament in 1831, the outbreak of cholera in 1832, and the passage of the Reform Bill later that year. Eliot manages to interlace these things into the concerns of the characters and the narrative; they are not the focus of the novel, but are balanced with the novel's literary concerns.…
