* TheSevenBasicPlots: Booker uses this tale as a prime example of how the Rebirth plot doesn't have to involve a romance - instead of a love interest, this story uses a child to touch the heart of poor Silas and bring him back to an enjoyment of life.

''SilasMarner'' is an 1861 novel written by Creator/GeorgeEliot. Unlike other Eliot novels, ''Silas Marner'' is a very compact book with a straightforward narrative and very few subplots. It concerns Marner, a weaver unfairly forced out of his home village after being framed for robbery. Moving to the small town of Raveloe, he leads a quiet, lonely life where he hoards his money and is treated with suspicion by the townspeople until he is struck by tragedy, and then redemption, shortly thereafter.
