Sample text

Later, she refuses his proposal of marriage, and afterwards longs for him, singing Gretchen’s “Meine Ruh ist hin” (WP, 138, 169), or “Gretchens Stube”, as it is called in the First Part of Goethe’s Faust. She suggests that they should live like larks, which he agrees with, but then she says that it would be impossible. When she is about to leave, she tells him that he has missed his opportunity to take her; he passionately kisses her, but she feels only weary. These scenes continue remorselessly over the course of the novel.

Eduard and Charlotte are married, having known each other since childhood; the Hauptmann arrives, and links up with Eduard in their horticultural plans while excluding Charlotte for being too fanciful. Charlotte is satisfied by the arrival of the childlike Ottilie, and is also finding her own measured nature in affinity with the Hauptmann’s. Meanwhile, Ottilie appeals to Eduard’s childlike side, but the Hauptmann finds her ideas disturbing. And so the narrative continues. In Middlemarch George Eliot systematically elaborates on what Goethe only suggests in Die Wahlverwandtschaften, since each of her four characters is also bound to wider social relationships through affinity.

After the birth of her child at New Year she feels outcast from society not nature, like the alienated Tess who suckles her child while harvesting. Yet through gentle support the “magnificent” George brings her back into society, and comforts her child who shares the solemn, staring eyes of Tess’ Sorrow; he also saves Lettie and the child after her almost suicidal sleepwalk, like Jude’s, over an iced pond. Finally, he carries her home after her confrontation with Leslie, enabling her to flourish in his pastoral environment as his “fat sorrow” (WP, 329, 344).
