These include Eliot's friendships with Liszt and Wagner, the legacy of Romanticism, the importance of music in scientific theory, and the ambivalent status of women's involvement in music." "The book establishes how intensely Eliot's writing about music was informed by her engagement with the culture of her time and discusses why music mattered to Eliot and her contemporaries - in ways both familiar and unfamiliar to us. A focus on music offers a fresh view of the experimental writing through which Eliot took the realist novel into previously uncharted regions where scientific materialism and the Romantic uncanny meet."--Jacket." ;
