Overview

A collection of acclaimed novels and short stories by a major woman author whose every work was a radical study of human personalities and crises:


Middlemarch This realistic novel about an intellectual, idealistic woman has won recognition as one of the 10 Greatest Books of All-Time.
Daniel Deronda George Eliot's last completed novel is also her most ambitious work. Its story about conflicts of loves and spiritual quests made it controversial from almost the first day of its publication.
Silas Marner and Two Short Stories The return to grace of a wrongly convicted, exiled weaver is at the center of Eliot's memorable Silas Marner. In addition to the novel, this handsome contains two shorter works: "The Lifted Veil," a dark Gothic fantasy about a youthful clairvoyant and "Brother Jacob," a deliciously satirical fable about a confectioner's apprentice."
