Abstract:

In the first of an eight part lecture series, Professor Ruth Wisse introduces George Eliot, the author of Daniel Deronda, and her character Gwendolen Harleth. An expert on Yiddish and Jewish literature and winner of the National Humanities Medal, Wisse explores the opening paragraph of Chapter 1, in which Daniel and Gwendolen are attracted to one another at a casino in Germany. Through the relationship between these characters and their parallel plots, she explores themes of nationalism, liberalism, changes in British society, forbidden love, and the concept of moral virtue eclipsing physical beauty.
