Hailed for its sympathetic and exact rendering of nineteenth-century English pastoral existence, Adam Bede used to be George Eliot’s first full-length novel and a bestseller from the instant of book. Eliot herself known as it “a nation story—full of the breath of cows and odor of hay.” Adam Bede is an earnest and virtuous chippie who's betrayed by way of his love, Hetty Sorrel, a gorgeous but silly dairymaid who's seduced via a clumsy younger villager. The sour, tragic outcomes of her activities shake the very foundations in their serene rural community.

While Adam Bede represents a undying tale of seduction and betrayal, it's also a deeper, impassioned meditation at the irrevocable effects of human activities and on ethical development and redemption via suffering.
