Based on K. Barth’s definition of faith and R. Bultmann’s existentialist theology, J. H. Mazaheri has attempted to reveal G. Eliot’s profound religious and spiritual quest by focusing on the short but powerful novel, Silas Marner. The critic believes that her thought in the area of religion and theology has not been appreciated enough by critics, and that a postmodern reading is necessary in order to understand it. So, through a close textual reading, the author shows not only the affinities G. Eliot had with Coleridge and Wordworth, already mentioned by others, but also with Schleiermacher and Kierkegaard. The novelist clearly distinguishes between religion and superstition: if she strongly rejects the latter, she believes in the reality and good aspects of the former. Indeed she demythologizes Christianity in a positive way, and implicitly offers a new definition of religion. On the other hand, although she admired and translated Feuerbach’s The Essence of Christianity, she differed from him as much as she did from Strauss, whom she also translated. This essay on Silas Marner proposes, thus, a new approach to G. Eliot’s thought, while stressing the qualities of her art, especially in the way she uses allegory, irony, and free indirect speech.
An accessible introduction to some of the most important ideas developed in Plato's Symposium.
George Eliot's third novel, "Silas Marner" (1861) is a powerful and moving tale about one man's journey from exile and loneliness to the warmth and joy of the family. The story opens as Silas Marner, falsely accused of theft, loses everything, including his faith in God. Embittered and alienated from his fellow man, he moves to the village of Raveloe, where he becomes a weaver. Taking refuge in his work, Silas slowly begins to accumulate gold--his only joy in life--until one day that too is stolen from him. Then one dark evening, a beautiful, golden-haired child, lost and seeing the light from Silas's cottage, toddles in through his doorway. As Silas grows to love the girl as if she were his own daughter, his life changes into something precious. But his happiness is threatened when the orphan's real father comes to claim the girl as his own, and Silas must face losing a treasure greater than all the gold in the world. This volume also includes two shorter works by Eliot--"The Lifted Veil", a dark Gothic fantasy about a morbid young clairvoyant, and "Brother Jacob", a deliciously satirical fable about a confectioner's apprentice.
