"Brother Jacob" is a short story by George Eliot in which she explores the relationship between the selfish, self-centered, and ambitious David Faux and his simple-hearted and naif brother, Jacob.
Cosa pensano gli ascoltatori di Brother Jacob
- Thomas A. Copeland
The reader pronounces each sentence almost as if in a list of sentences. She emphasizes nothing so as to connect the ideas with their context—words such as “other” or “next”—seemingly aware of nothing more than the grammatical connections of words within the sentence rather than of semantic links throughout a paragraph. Not does she have sufficient education to be acquainted with the allusions she is obliged to read. She also pronounces “gig” “jig” all five times.
