Editions of George Eliot’s work 25 Scenes of Clerical Life George Eliot’s first four publications with Blackwood, Scenes of Clerical Life (1858), Adam Bede (1859), The Mill on the Floss (1860) and Silas Marner (1861), were produced using this strategy, with important variations. The ‘Clerical Scenes’, as Lewes and Blackwood referred to them, were serialised anonymously in Blackwood’s Magazine from January to November 1857.
The sonnet sequence ‘Brother and Sister’ (1874) recounts the painful moment when she and Isaac first started to grow apart as children. With her next novel Marian’s reputation and finances spectacularly revived. Middlemarch, published mostly in two-monthly instalments throughout 1872, plaits the story of an idealistic doctor arriving in a Midlands market town with that of an equally high-minded young woman who insists on marrying out of misplaced duty and intellectual ambition. The book was an astonishing success and remains today Eliot’s most highly regarded book.

Mackay’s The Progress of the Intellect for the Westminster (January 1851) and W. R. Greg’s The Creed of Christendom for the weekly Leader (20 September 1851), which Lewes and Thornton Hunt established in 1850.
