Description

Only in her final novel, in 1876, did George Eliot turn to contemporary English and European life as material for the expression of her own idealism. Daniel Deronda is a psychologically incisive investigation, probing the egoism of a spoiled girl and her increasing awareness of conscience through suffering. Gwendolen comes to regard Daniel as her moral and spiritual mentor, but chance, the revelation of his Jewish birth, and his practical and sympathetic identification with his race draw him away from her. The text is that of Graham Handley's Clarendon edition, which is based on the novel's first published form. emergent nationalism and the bitter internal struggle ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.
