Reviews

'Sprightly, witty and engaging.' The Times Literary Supplement
'... this book attempts to make 'George Eliot' less abstract by attesting to some of the 'wider relations' that establish co-ordinates on her life and work. The list of further reading and the detailed index highlight the judicious balance Harris strikes in terms of scholarship and also the criticism evident in this volume. The book is nicely designed and black-and-white illustrations accompany the text, and there is a fine image on the jacket ... Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty; general readers.' W. Baker, Choice
'The entire work is a valuable review of what is known and has been said about Eliot.' Constance M. Fulmer, Victorian Periodicals Review
'... this volume features helpful entries not only on George Eliot's life, career and critical fortunes, but also on the building blocks of her cultural and social class ...' Adela Pinch, SEL Studies in English Literature 1500-1900
'This determined, clever book offers an edifying reconsideration of Eliot's life and legacy, and Harris deserves plaudits for her wise, kindhearted approach to her monumental subject.' Darren J. N. Middleton, Religious Studies Review
