Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0340857315, Paperback)

"George Eliot: A Beginner's Guide" introduces you to the life and work of one of the greatest nineteenth-century novelists. In this guide Eliot's themes are explored with reference to her major novels. Both contemporary and modern critical approaches to her work are clearly considered and presented. Jenny Weatherburn's wide-ranging text covers: the way in which Eliot's life influenced her writing Victorian attitudes - and the way in which Eliot's life-choices were at variance with the values she appeared to promote what to expect from her novels and how to approach them the style of Eliot's writing.
