    George Eliot
    Selected Novels, Volume II
    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.

    Daniel Deronda

    Daniel Deronda
    As Daniel Deronda opens, Gwendolen Harleth is poised at the roulette-table, prepared to throw away her family fortune. She is observed by Daniel Deronda, a young man groomed in the finest tradition of the English upper-classes. And while Gwendolen loses everything and becomes trapped in an oppressive marriage, Deronda's fortunes take a different turn. After a dramatic encounter with the young Jewish woman Mirah, he becomes involved in a search for her lost family and finds himself drawn into ever-deeper sympathies with Jewish aspirations and identity. 'I meant everything in the book to be related to everything else', wrote George Eliot of her last and most ambitious novel, and in weaving her plot strands together she created a bold and richly textured picture of British society and the Jewish experience within it.

    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.
