Description

As a woman in an illegal marriage, publishing under a male pseudonym, George Eliot was one of the most successful yet controversial writers of the Victorian period. Today she is considered a key figure for women's writing and her novels, including The Mill on the Floss and Middlemarch, are commonly ranked as literary classics. This guide to Eliot's enduringly popular work offers: an accessible introduction to the contexts and many interpretations of Eliot's texts, from publication to the present an introduction to key critical texts and perspectives on Eliot's life and work, situated in a broader critical history cross-references between sections of the guide, in order to suggest links between texts, contexts and criticism suggestions for further reading. Part of the Routledge Guides to Literature series, this volume is essential reading for all those beginning detailed study of George Eliot and seeking not only a guide to her works but also a way through the wealth of contextual and critical material that surrounds them.
