Abstract for 6. A CRITICAL EXPLORATION OF THE MORAL VALUES IN VICTORIAN BRITISH SOCIETY AS SEEN THROUGH ADAM BEDE BY GEORGE ELIOT
The Victorian Age is known as the age in reaction to Romanticism according the movement in literature and art originating in revolt against the formalities and conventions of classicism. The period was characterized by religion morality and its rigid code of behaviours. The current research work which focuses on the moral values in the Victorian Age in George Eliot’s Adam Bede comes out to understand the British citizen’s living conditions of the Era. Thus the psychoanalytic approach helps me to better understand the issue. The study shows that the Age was a class-based society where the race for material blinds people. It was a society of injustice and social inequalities.
