Overview

ROMOLA….. is introduced by a wonderful, stirring and majestic 'Poem' which sees the Angel of the Dawn sweeping across the Earth and loftily states how humanity is the same now as it was when Romola was set. 645 Pages In Print! A Great Read! A Wonderful Classic!

• This volume includes a “Detailed Biography” of our author, George Eliot.

George Eliot spent two years preparing "Romola", and the result is a rich, densely detailed "Tale of the Renaissance". Never a facile writer, here she is concerned with one of the most intellectually challenging not to mention politically complicated periods in history; and she paints the panoply and power struggles as a background for the personal tragedy which is the novel's crux.

While not an "easy read" in the Sir Walter Scott sense, "Romola" presents in sumptous detail the banquets, the festivities, and the famous bonfire of vanities that one associates with late 15th Century Florence. You really feel you are experiencing Florence in the 15th century.

But from a purely literary viewpoint, the most important thing about the book is its delineation of Tito Melema, the young man who in the opening chapters is the story's hero, but slowly, irrevocably becomes its villain. Neither Sir Walter nor Charles Dickens has psychological insight (in the modern sense) as sharp as George Eliot's, and this study of a fictional character's downfall is one of the most stunning depictions of corruption in English literature. That he is the husband of the heroine, a sensitive, finely sensual woman, makes the tragedy all the more poignant.

    Volume

    Be careful this copy is VOLUME 1 and there is no listing that tells you this. I have trouble locating Volume 2! I will need a magnifying glass to read the miniature book covers.
