Book Description

This title, first published in 1970, consists of essays on the individual tales and novels of George Eliot, with two general essays that discuss the novels as a whole and cuts across the individual works. The primary concern of these studies is to see what the limits of George Eliot’s greatness are, to consider the purpose and end of the technical brilliance, and to attend to what she has to say to us across a century of change and developing historical and psychological consciousness. This book will be of interest to students of literature.
