But Lydgate’s mess ups, too, have deep roots in a heroic belief of responsibility. For this makes no allowance for lesser tasks. Lydgate’s first mistake, at the start of the attachment to Bulstrode that might be his undoing, is to acquiesce within the banker’s blackmail and vote for Tyke instead of Farebrother, as his judgment of right and wrong may dictate. He regards the alternative among Tyke and Farebrother within the election for the recent clinic chaplain as too trivial to obstacle him, busy as he's with the grand undertaking of the recent Fever health center in Middlemarch and along with his medical discoveries, which he believes will shop the lives of thousands of individuals. ‘In his student’s chambers, he had prearranged his social motion relatively differently’; that's, in an altogether loftier type. Lydgate considers the problem of the chaplain underneath him, identifying to make no selection in any respect and enable concerns take their path. He arrives past due on the committee assembly, and destiny takes its revenge: his is the casting vote. with no additional mirrored image he opts for the unjust reason. however the ‘affair of the chaplaincy remained a sore element in his reminiscence as a case during which this petty medium of Middlemarch have been too powerful for him’.

To take funds for granted—as Fred, Lydgate and Rosamond do— is a kind of selfishness and as corrupting because the compulsive avarice that transforms the kinfolk of the landowner Featherstone into ‘Christian Carnivora’ at his funeral. Eliot is ‘interestingly unique in seeing a refusal to appreciate the industrial realities that underlie type differences as a type of vulgarity’,11 and in brushing aside exalted visions of lifestyles during which a noble self confronts an abject international as banal. opposed to those, her novel deals an unsparing exam of Lydgate’s ‘spots of commonness’, these prejudices he stocks with ‘ordinary males of the realm’ which his excessive conceptions hinder him from spotting.
