    This could also indicate that he has not completely cast aside others although he has moved himself apart from society, and hopefully could finally rekindle belief in humanity. Furthermore, his house is described as 'stone' with a sense of dullness, lack of existence, and lack of emotion - which could depict Silas's own condition. This is enhanced by Eliot "his house is close to the edge of a deserted stone pit."
