Penguin Classics presents George Eliot's Silas Marner, adapted for audio and available as a digital downloads as part of the Penguin English Library series. Read by Tim Pigott-Smith.

To look almost pretty, is an acquisition of higher delight to a girl who has been looking plain the first 15 years of her life, than a beauty from her cradle can ever receive. Wrongly accused of theft and exiled from a religious community many years before, the embittered weaver Silas Marner lives alone in Raveloe, living only for work and his precious hoard of money. But when his money is stolen and an orphaned child finds her way into his house, Silas is given the chance to transform his life. His fate, and that of the little girl he adopts, is entwined with Godfrey Cass, son of the village Squire, who, like Silas, is trapped by his past.

Silas Marner, George Eliot's favourite of her novels, combines humour, rich symbolism, and pointed social criticism to create an unsentimental but affectionate portrait of rural life.

Part of a series of vintage recordings taken from the Penguin Archives. Affordable, collectable, quality productions - perfect for on-the-go listening.
