Middlemarch

by George Eliot

Middlemarch Book 8, Chapter 73 Summary

  • Lydgate is miserable again. He doesn't know how to vindicate himself.
  • But he also has to ask himself whether he would have asked more questions about Raffles's death if he hadn't just gotten a huge loan from Bulstrode.
  • He considers returning the money to Bulstrode, but how can he, when it would mean going deep into debt again? What would Rosamond say?
