Silas Marner returns to Lantern Yard to revisit his past. He wanted to know the truth behind his past. Chance and coincidence had played good and bad roles in his life. However, what he saw of Lantern Yard surprised him. Actually, there was no Lantern Yard, instead a house stood with overhanging windows. There was no sign of his old house, old chapel, or his old friends. The past he cherished had vanished. Last thirty years had robbed what Silas Marner remembered of Lantern Yard. Now there were gigantic bustling impersonal factories. There is no sign of Mr. Paston, the minister, whom Marner intended to meet. The old prison is the only thing that Marner finds in present Lantern Yard. Shallow faced people peeped from gloomy doorways and there was filth in the air. Lantern Yard lacked the past vibrancy.
Silas Marner’s visit to Lantern Yard with Eppie proved to enrich his zeal for life. Eppie’s presence in his life was both by chance and coincidence. Now, he loved himself and had faith in living life to the fullest. The visit to Lantern Yard established this faith strongly within Silas Marner. Now, he believed all good will happen to him and others.
