Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Review of the hardback: 'This is essential reading for anyone interested in the sources of Daniel Deronda, the interpretation of those sources and their contextualised effects. The assemblage contains hitherto unpublished pages from the Berg Notebook, together with a reexamination of the Pforzheimer Notebooks. These notebooks and their commentary mark a major step towards the fuller appreciation of George Eliot's artistic dedication and the nature of her genius.' George Eliot - G. H. Lewes Studies
