MINOR CHARACTERS IN THE NOVELS OF GEORGE ELIOT

Dr Kaneez Banoo Quraishi.

Abstract
In George Eliot’s novels some of the major characters fall into a moral classification, though perhaps slightly less obvious in the case of minor characters.If we considers some of the minor figures who appear to be playing ‘character’ parts for the purposes of filling in social background or providing comedy, it will often be found that they too are making their contribution to the moral theme.George Eliot like Jane Austen and Dickens, does not usually make the exaggerated feature of the ‘character’ the moral trait.Some of her minor characters shows the moral reflections of the main dilemma is much clearer.There is Bob Jakin, or Dolly Winthrop. Or little Henrietta Noble, all with some ‘ character’ interest, in the theatrical sense, but all possessing a very strongly delineated moral feature of benevolence.The careful woven pattern extends even to minor characters, for ‘Middlemarch’ is a novel where ,as far as possible, all the characters are carefully weighted with an implied full existence.It is impossible to separate vision and technical device .Her minor characters are drawn from various walks of life in the Midlands. We meet farmers, clergymen , gardeners , schoolmasters , carpenters , milkmaids , and inn-keepers. The whole gallery of minor characters add various and vivid colours to her novels.

Key words: Major characters , moral , contribution , existence , feature
