About this Item

New York. 1876. Harper & Brothers. Reprinted Hardcover Editions. Some Spotting To Boards, Otherwise Very Good In Hardcover. 36. 411 pages (v.1) and 427 pages (v.2). hardcover. keywords: November 22. inventory # 27672. FROM THE PUBLISHER - This, George Eliotís last novel, breaks through the traditional molds of Victorian fiction into areas that are still of relevance and concern today. Two intensely moving themes are interwoven in the plot. One is the story of Daniel Deronda, raised among the British upper classes, only to rediscover his Jewish ancestry and become torn between the worlds of great English country houses and Londonís East End. The other is the chronicle of Gwendolen Harleth, a young. woman of breeding, beauty and undeveloped potential, whose marriage to a man of vast power and arrogance becomes an imprisonment she desperately longs to escape. Eliotís examination of the polite and not-so-polite ways of anti-Semitism is the background for a vivid depiction of both the richly complex love that evolves between Daniel and Gwendolen and the whole gamut of Victorian follies and delusions. This novel, full of realistic appraisals of people at all levels of society, offers a unique portrait of the subtle agonies of alienation and the costIy struggle for selfhood.
