Overview

George Eliot's notebooks from the years 1872-77 contain memoranda of her reading while she was preparing for and writing Daniel Deronda, together with the 'Oriental Memoranda' and other notes she recorded in the year following the novel's publication. Above all, the notebooks reveal her acquisition of a wide range of learning about Judaism, and provide insight into the creative process of integrating that learning into Daniel Deronda. One of these notebooks is published here for the first time; others are offered in new transcriptions. They are presented in a form which demonstrates the intellectual coherence underlying the diversity of the memoranda: translations are provided for the notes in German, French, Latin, Greek, and Hebrew; explanatory headnotes are offered, and interpretative links are made to the novel; primary sources are traced and the chronology of George Eliot's reading outlined.

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 The assemblage contains hitherto unpublished pages from the Berg Notebook, together with a reexamination of the Pforzheimer Notebooks.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
