Much more than just a simple tale of a reclusive weaver, in Silas Marner the author combines symbolism with a historically precise setting to create a tale of love and hope, exploring the issues of redemptive love, the notion of community, the role of religion, and the status of the gentry and family. This is perhaps George Eliot's best and best-beloved novel.

Silas Marner: The Weaver of Raveloe is the third novel by George Eliot, published in 1861. An outwardly simple tale of a linen weaver, it is notable for its strong realism and its sophisticated treatment of a variety of issues ranging from religion to industrialisation to community.Review:
"I think Silas Marner holds a higher place than any of the author's works. It is more nearly a masterpiece; it has more of that simple, rounded, consummate aspect. . .which marks a classical work."--Henry James
