Produktbeschreibung
Adam Bede falls in love with a teenage orphan, who is being secretly seduced by a wealthy squire, which leads to a series of tragedies. Adam attempts to navigate the situation exposing lies and unexpected betrayals. In the small village of Hayslope, a group of men and women are pulled into an unconventional love story that changes the trajectory of their lives. Adam Bede is a young carpenter who adores Hetty, the 17-year-old cousin of Dinah, a Methodist preacher. Hetty is a flirtatious beauty who engages in a romance with Captain Arthur Donnithorne. When their relationship is discovered, Adam insists Arthur leave Hetty to which he quickly obliges. Despite his interference, Adam is unaware of a looming development that will send Hetty down and dark and inevitable path. George Eliot brilliantly composes a multilayered story driven by selfish desires. It explores the hidden consequences of behavior, as well as the superficial nature of romance. Adam Bede is a complex tale that questions elements of chivalry, marriage and the traditional family. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Adam Bede is both modern and readable.
