a genuinely interesting contribution to George Eliot scholarship by one of the leading postwar critics of Victorian fiction. The conception is bold and arresting... it reads excellently but its clarity is also vivid, effective and engaging. It wears its evident deep learning, and informed familiarity with Eliot''s world, lightlyaIt manages to integrate three achievements: to give an animated sense of Eliot''s personality as a woman, an intellectual, and a writer; it evokes successfully the milieu in which she lived and worked; and it offers genuine illumination in relation to the fiction.'' Professor Rick Rylance, Deputy Head of English Department, University of Exeter (and former Chair of Council for College and University English)>
