|Title:||Heroism in Middlemarch|
|Authors:||Riddoch, Andrew Thomas|
|Keywords:||English;English Language and Literature;English Language and Literature|
|Abstract:||<p>Traditional avenues of heroism appear, to George Eliot, to be no longer open in modern society. Traditional heroism with the values it embodied and conserved is either irrelevant to, or harmful to modern society. The true, modern hero is one who understands the dynamic interconnections of society, and altruistically works in a practical way for the good of society, forsaking his selfish, or egoistic desires.</p>|
