adam bede defined in 1939 yearadam bede - Adam Bede;
adam bede - Novel by George Eliot, which established her reputation on its publication in 1859. It is a faithful picture of provincial life in the Warwickshire surroundings of her early years, and gives an idea of the tragedy and beauty to be found in the dull routine existence of a rustic population. It deals with the love of Adam Bede for two women. The character who, according to Leslie Stephen, made the fortune of the book is Mrs. Poyser, the farmer's wife, a creation which stamps George Eliot as a humorist.
