  1. Hello. I’m just exploring your blog now. I’ve started writing a romance based on Middlemarch. Before you retch, let me say, I’m trying to be true to the spirit of the characters’ live. In my sitory there emerges a triangle among Dorothea, Weill, and a third chapter I have invented. She’s a woman. I don’t really need anything from you – I just wanted to share this with you.


    1. It’s always great to hear that Eliot’s books still make us want to go further in imagination & rewriting. Thanks so much for getting in touch & intrigued to hear about this …
