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
Romola by George Eliot( Book )
568 editions published between 1860 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 5,927 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 Drawings on George Eliot's unpublished journals and notebooks, the introduction gives a comprehensive account of the genesis, composition, and publishing history of the novel: her two visits to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 Since its first appearance, Romola has perplexed many of George Eliot's admirers by the range and density of its historical references.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'

Felix Holt, the radical by George Eliot( Book )
490 editions published between 1800 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 4,026 libraries worldwide
When the young nobleman Harold Transome returns to England from the colonies with a self-made fortune, he scandalizes the town of Treby Magna with his decision to stand for Parliament as a Radical. But, after the idealistic Felix Holt also returns to the town, the difference between Harold's opportunistic values and Holt's profound beliefs becomes apparent. Forthright, brusque and driven by a firm desire to educate the working-class, Felix is at first viewed with suspicion by many, including the elegant but vain Esther Lyon, the daughter of the local clergyman. As she discovers, however, his blunt words conceal both passion and deep integrity. Soon the romantic and over-refined Esther finds herself overwhelmed by a heart-wrenching decision: whether to choose the wealthy Transome as a husband, or the impoverished but honest Felix Holt

Scenes of clerical life by George Eliot( Book )
463 editions published between 1800 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 3,613 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."--Jacket

Middlemarch : a study of provincial life by George Eliot( Book )
308 editions published between 1860 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,789 libraries worldwide
"George Eliot's Middlemarch (1871-72) is one of the classic novels of English literature and was admired by Virginia Woolf as "one of the few English novels written for grown-up people." The complex main plot and many subplots revolve around Dorothea Brooke, an ardent young woman, and her relationship to three men: Casaubon, a clergyman and scholar twice her age; Lydgate, an ambitious young doctor who shares Dorothea's enthusiasm for reform but whose flaws compromise his ambitions; and Will Ladislaw, a young man of mysterious origins, romantic temperament, and artistic inclinations. A female Bildungsroman and a study of character and society in the realistic mode pioneered by Balzac, Middlemarch is also an historical novel that offers a panorama of English society in an era of social reform and political agitation." "This Broadview edition includes a critical introduction and a rich selection of contextual materials, including contemporary reviews of the novel, other writings by George Eliot (essays, reviews, and criticism), and historical documents pertaining to medical reform, religious freedom, and the advent of the railroads."--Jacket

Impressions of Theophrastus Such by George Eliot( Book )
114 editions published between 1800 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,404 libraries worldwide
Impressions of Theophrastus Such, published in 1879, marks the end of George Eliot's career and the end of her life with George Henry Lewes. In many ways this fable is a final testimony to her brilliance, and yet it is puzzling that it has traditionally been judged as inferior to her other works. It remains, on the contrary, a significant reflection of her earlier works and an experiment apart from them. As Nancy Henry points out in her comprehensive introduction, this book goes beyond even Daniel Deronda in positing the role of collective memory in the future of national cultures and the power of literary texts in creating and preserving both. It is a complex and deeply intelligent synthesis of Eliot's previous great works as well as an interesting departure from them. It signals the culmination of her development as a writer of organic form and the beginning of what could be termed an early modernist experimentation through fragmentation of form. In eight dexterous chapters, Theophrastus reflects on the habits of his contemporaries - on their tendency to romanticize past ages, the ruthless nature of scholarly debate, the mocking of traditionally revered works of the absurdity of decadence in art, and the justification for Jewish and other modern nationalisms. As the character of Theophrastus emerges and coheres, the mature and accomplished George Eliot asks what has become of nineteenth-century English culture while speculating on how it might adapt and survive
