Felix Holt, the radical, Volume 1 (Google eBook)
As in all of George Eliot's best work, every class of society is included in this portrait of political ferment and corrupt electioneering in a small Midland borough in 1832. At the heart of the novel is George Eliot's conviction that "men's lives are as thoroughly blended with each other as the air they breathe; evil spreads as necessarily as disease."
