Silas marner

  1. 1. Silas Marner<br />By Brendan Roden<br />
  2. 2. Banished from Lantern Yard<br />“God will clear me: I know nothing about the knife being there, or the money being gone. Search me and my dewlling: you will find nothing but three pound five of my own savings, which William Dane knows I have had these six months” (15).<br />
  3. 3. Money has Disappeared<br />“The sight of the empty hole made his heart leap violently, but the belief that his gold was gone could not come at once—only terror, and the eager effort to put an end to the terror. He passed his trembling hand all about the hole, trying to think it possible that his eyes had deceived him; then he held the candle in the hole and examined it curiously, trembling more and more” (47). <br />
  4. 4. Eppie Arrives out of Nowhere <br />“He leaned forward at last, and stretched forth his hand; but instead of the hard coin with the familiar resisting outline, his fingers encountered soft, warm curls. In utter amazement, Silas fell on his knees and bent his head low to examine the marvel: it was a sleeping child—a round, fair thing, with soft yellow rings all over its head” (119).<br />
  5. 5. Grief<br />I tell you, hopeless grief is passionless;<br />That only men incredulous of despair,<br />Half-taught in anguish, through the midnight air<br />Beat upward to God’s throne in loud access<br />Of shrieking and reproach. Full desertness,<br />In souls as countries, lieth silent-bare<br />Under the blanching, vertical eye-glare<br />Of the absolute heavens. Deep-hearted man, express<br />Grief for thy dead in silence like to death—<br />Most like a monumental statue set<br />In everlasting watch and moveless woe<br />Till itself crumble to the dust beneath.<br />Touch it; the marble eyelids are not wet:<br />If it could weep, it could arise and go.<br /> <br />
  6. 6. My Heart and I<br />III.<br />“How tired we feel, my heart and I !<br />We seem of no use in the world;<br />Our fancies hang grey and uncurled<br />About men’s eyes indifferently;<br />Our voice which thrilled you so, will let<br />You sleep; our tears are only wet:<br />What do we here, my heart and I?”<br />
  7. 7. Cui Bono<br /> ”What is Hope? A smiling rainbow<br />Children follow through the wet;<br />‘Tis not here, still yonder, yonder:<br />Never urchin found it yet.”<br />
