Ben Winthropa large and jolly wheelwright who leads the church choir on Sundays, and Mr. Crackenthorp the rector and Mr. He soon receives word from Sarah that their engagement is ended, and a month later she marries William Dane. The young couple come to live with Silas at his cottage, where the villagers join in agreement that Silas has been blessed through his kindness to an orphaned child. Indeed, the speakers' professions are so central to their characters that for a good part of the chapter they are not referred to by name but as "the butcher," "the wheelwright," "the landlord," and so on.

He finds no one there. Godfrey is glad enough to have the child cared for. One such in Silas Marner is the effect of industrialization on English society in the nineteenth century. The second robbery sets in place of the just God a vision of a "cruel power. Godfrey is not surprised either, for he soon learns that Dunstan has killed his horse. Silas is now treated with some consideration by his neighbors.

He is unable to question the rightness of church doctrine, and he will not easily believe that William would betray him. The two of them have discussed his old problem at Lantern Yard and considered the great differences in religion between the two places. Marner eventually settles at the outskirts of Raveloe, a provincial village in the English Midlands. Silas, betrayed by his friend and now by his God, declares that there is no just God. The community of Raveloe is an agent of their acts as well as a spectator and commentator.

Silas Marner book

He has been looking out to see if his money might return and has been stricken by one of his fits. The two of them go that night to Marner's cottage to claim Eppie. Marner gasps that he has been robbed and, seeing Jem Rodney among the company, immediately accuses him of the crime.

However, instead of turning over the horse at once, he rides in the chase and kills the animal on a stake. The Casses exit Marner's cottage, their hope for a child again defeated.

His helplessness removes any feeling that he is connected with the devil. Sarah The woman to whom Silas was engaged at Lantern Yard.

Nor are Godfrey and Silas the only persons involved. Nancy Lammeter Daughter of a wealthy landowner. When he loses his religion, he turns to his work, and then to his gold. When he awakes, he sees gold by his hearth and thinks his money has come back, then he discovers that the gold is the hair of a child.

After the past is brought up to date, the time remains at the same Sunday on which this portion of the book opened, until the main plot considerations are disposed of for example, Dunstan's disappearance, Godfrey's relationship to Eppie, and Eppie's future. The meaning is a part of the style and structure, and themes cannot be set out in so many pointed quotations.

Instead of being disgusted with him, Nancy is sorry that she refused to adopt Eppie sooner. Bob Cass One of Godfrey's two other brothers, in addition to Dunstan. But when he appears in the final pages as a man with new faith, he has not been merely restored to his original position.

The opium only makes her more drowsy, and Molly sinks down in the snow. Taking the child with him, Marner makes his way into the Red House ball in order to alert the doctor about the woman. In order to find out the truth, the church members resort to prayer and drawing of lots, and the lots declare Silas guilty.

The gold coins that he earns at his loom represent for him all the meaning that he has lost, and the faces printed on the coins serve as his only company. They are the human hearts of village life in addition to the higher-up villagers, those at Mrs.

When Silas discovers the robbery, he reports it to the Rainbow, and Godfrey hears of it from there.Jan 01,  · However, a person who is looking for a decent intellectual book that goes deep into the culture of a century ago will find the plot and storyline rather graceful.

Silas Marner Summary

Silas changes greatly during the course of the book, yet part of him always remains "the same Silas Marner who had once loved his fellow with tender love and trusted in an unseen goodness." That original love and trust seemed crushed by the evils which befall him, but they return with even greater strength, and it seems natural that they should.
