Adam Bede

George Elliott, the pen name of Mary Ann Evans Cross, starts the novel in a very 19th century manner with the author using her voice to set the scene. Once the initial author intrusive paragraph is read through, the workshop in which Adam is a carpenter is brought to life using both description and dialect. One of the best ways to interpret the dialect is to use the voice of Lionel’s father’s gardener from the TV series “As Time Goes By.”
