Romola by George Eliot ( Book )
532 editions published between 1861 and 2008 in 10 languages and held by 2,976 libraries worldwide
Ramola always occupied a special place in George Eliot's own affections, Looking back at the end of her career she remarked 'I felt some wonder that anyone should think I had written anything better'. The copy text for the Clarendon edition is the serialization in the Cornhill Magazine (July 1862-August 1863), emended to incorporate authorial revisions in the first edition in book form (1863), the Illustrated edition (1865), and the setting copy and proofs of the Cabinet edition (1877-8). A number of manuscript readings are also restored, where it seems likely that the Cornhill compositor misread the handwriting. Changes and deletions in the manuscript are recorded in the apparatus, along with rejected variants from post-Cornhill printings. Drawings on George Eliot's unpublished journals and notebooks, the introduction gives a comprehensive account of the genesis, composition, and publishing history of the novel: her two visits to Florence; her prodigious preparatory research before she began writing; her negotiations with the publisher George Smith, who offered her the astonishing sum of 10,000 pounds for the book; her correspondence with Frederic Leighton, who illustrated the novel for the Cornhill; and the persistent ill-health and depression that afflicted her throughout the period of composition. Since its first appearance, Romola has perplexed many of George Eliot's admirers by the range and density of its historical references. Here, in a series of unusually extensive notes, the sources of these allusion are traced and their significance explained. The result is to re-establish the novel as one of the very greatest of her artistic accomplishments - in Henry James's words, 'on the whole the finest thing she wrote'.
Daniel Deronda by George Eliot ( Book )
508 editions published between 1800 and 2010 in 10 languages and held by 2,975 libraries worldwide
Deronda, a high-minded young man searching for his path in life, finds himself drawn by a series of dramatic encounters into two contrasting worlds: the English country-house life of Gwendolen Harleth, a high-spirited beauty trapped in an oppressive marriage, and the very different lives of a poor Jewish girl, Mirah, and her family. As Deronda uncovers the long-hidden secret of his own parentage, Eliot's moving and suspenseful narrative opens up a world of Jewish experience previously unknown to the Victorian novel.
Felix Holt, the radical by George Eliot ( Book )
331 editions published between 1800 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,501 libraries worldwide
A political radical and a child of the working class, Felix has lost faith in a political system in which candidates never represent the interests of the working class. Harold Transome, the cynical son of wealthy Tory landowners, embraces radical politics for very different reasons. Both Harold and Felix vie for the affections of Esther Lyon, and she must weigh her feelings for them with the social and material goals she has set for herself. Their personal drama unfolds against the broad canvas of social and political upheaval of 1830s England.
Scenes of clerical life by George Eliot ( Book )
311 editions published between 1800 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 1,725 libraries worldwide
"'Many men write well and tell a story well, but few possess the art of giving individuality to their characters so happily and easily as you ... '" "Thus wrote the publisher John Blackwood in February 1857 to a shy and ambitious new author, whom he had not yet met, George Eliot. Shielded by this pseudonym, Mary Ann Evans made her fictional debut when Scenes of Clerical Life appeared in Blackwood's Magazine the same year. These stories contain Eliot's earliest studies of what became enduring themes in her great novels: the impact of religious controversy and social change in provincial life, and the power of love to transform the lives of individual men and women."--BOOK JACKET.
