NY Mag book critic Kathryn Schulz has an inspiring piece on The Vulture on the moral drama and virtue of Middlemarch; why Eliot’s moralizing matters; and why it doesn’t become an aesthetic burden. “ Whatever Middlemarch has been doing to the world all these many years, I like to think it is diffuse, and diffusing, and incalculably good,” she says. In short, make 2014 the year you finally read or re-read Middlemarch and it just might make you a better person.
