Middlemarch is a book in which what was . . . is. Know that past, live the present, design the future. All time is in the novel, especially today. Myth and History become one. This is the second in an occasional series on Critical and Scholarly Reflections from the Past on George Eliot (see David Daiches on Middlemarch, 1863 in GE–GHLS, vol. 74, no. 1).
