Reading for Our Time (Paperback)

J. Hillis Miller

-  

A masterclass in attentive reading that opens up brilliant insights into two of George Eliot's novels. Can reading Adam Bede and Middlemarch be justified in this time of climate change, financial meltdown and ineffective politicians? J. Hillis Miller shows how, to be read for today, they must be read slowly, closely and carefully, with much attention to linguistic detail and especially to figures of speech. By relating mistakes like Dorothea's about Casaubon to current affairs, Miller's 'readings for today' can help us to come to terms with our human, social and political situation and even inspire us to act to ameliorate it. Key Features: * The product of many years of reading, teaching and writing by this world-renowned critic * Supported by the abundant previous scholarship on these texts
