The Gift of Children in "Silas Marner". What does the novel have to say about the relationship between parents and their children?
The clever use of language devices include omniscient third person narration, in which it gives an overview of both plots with Eliot?s opinions planted in the text. This use of narration reveals Silas as a solitary outsider, who worked at his trade in the backward looking village of Raveloe ?quite an hour?s journey on horseback from any turnpike.? However, after his betrayal in Lantern Yard, his self alienation from the villagers of Raveloe and the death of his humanity after the theft of his gold hoard, Silas is resurrected by Eppie, the child that enters his cottage whilst he is in a fit.
