    George Eliot (1819–1880) was a major English novelist whose classic works of fiction are known for their dedication to realism, depictions of rural society, characterization and psychological insight. Born Mary Anne Evans, George Eliot adopted her pen name because she enjoyed working anonymously and wished to protect her privacy. She is today one of the most popular Victorian novelists, and her work enjoyed extraordinary popularity during her lifetime. This book, the second volume of a two volume set of her selected works, includes ‘Middlemarch’ and ‘Daniel Deronda’, and is an essential edition for collectors, students and general lovers of George Eliot and Victorian literature.

    Romola

    Romola
    George Eliot’s Romola, writes Robert Kiely in his Introduction, embodies the author’s “wrestling with her own best theories of history and human nature as a creative experiment of the highest order.” Set in Florence in 1492, a time of great political and religious turmoil, Eliot’s novel blends vivid fictional characters with historical figures such as Savonarola, Machiavelli, and the Medicis. When Romola, the virtuous daughter of a blind scholar, marries Tito Melema, a charismatic young Greek, she is bound to a man whose escalating betrayals threaten to destroy all that she holds dear. Profoundly inspired by Savonarola’s teachings, then crushed by the religious leader’s ultimate failure, Romola finds her salvation in noble self-sacrifice. This Modern Library Paperback Classic is set from the 1878 Cabinet Edition.
