Overview

Famous for her powerful and popular fiction, George Eliot was also a remarkable critic, translator, and editor. This volume presents Eliot's views on science, religion, positivism, feminism, and politics, as well as her literary critical work on a range of authors and forms, including Tennyson, Browning, Goethe, Heine, German historical criticism of the Bible, classical drama, and popular contemporary novels. Most of the pieces in this volume were written before Eliot began to write fiction in 1856. They are a vivid representation of the analogical mind, the wit, and the sympathy which also characterize the narrators of her novels.
