Literature: Silas Marner
Silas Marner is an 1861 novel written by George Eliot. 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.

It is now in the public domain, and can be read in its entirety here.
