Abstract This comprehensive examination examines George Eliot's novel "Adam Bede" in the context of realism in Victorian English literature. The essay explores the origins of realism as a response to Romanticism, highlighting its focus on portraying life in a genuine manner, devoid of fanciful features. Critics frequently emphasize the Victorian era as a significant time in literature due to its varied novelists, who each played a role in shaping the changing notion of reality.
The story of "Adam Bede" is analyzed as an exemplary illustration of realism, stemming from Eliot's commitment to depicting common characters and mundane events with clarity. The essay highlights Eliot's distinctive methodology in developing characters, placing a greater emphasis on reality rather than a complex storyline. The characters, such as Adam Bede, Dinah Morris, Hetty Sorrel, and Arthur Donnithorne, are thoroughly examined to highlight their authentic qualities, imperfections, and development throughout the story.
The study incorporates thematic themes, including the depiction of both internal and external beauty, industrious work, and ethical conduct, all of which contribute to the novel's realism. The essay argues that "Adam Bede" adeptly portrays the social reality of Victorian society by exploring themes of social class and moral quandaries. The conclusion underscores the novel's importance as a piece of realism in Victorian English literature, matching with the wider cultural background of that age.
