Editorial Reviews

Margaret Harris University of Sydney
"The Broadview Press Felix Holt, the Radical is a handsomely-produced and reader-friendly edition of George Eliot's powerful novel of social ambition and illicit love. Generous selections of contextual material show how George Eliot's theories of artistic production and understanding of political realities shape the novel, and what her contemporaries made of it. Editors Baker and Womack deploy their expertise in Victorian studies to illuminate this work for the twenty-first century."
Ira Nadel University of British Columbia
"This edition carefully documents the politics of composition and of England at a critical time in the author's and the country's life. Useful appendices establish the context for understanding the novel and its background. The Condition of England Question at last comes alive!"
