Description

This is the "Penguin English Library Edition" of "Daniel Deronda" by George Eliot. 'What can I do?...I must get up in the morning and do what every one else does. It is all like a dance set beforehand. I seem to see all that can be - and I am tired and sick of it. And the world is all confusion to me'. George Eliot's last, most controversial novel opens as the spoiled Gwendolen Harleth, poised at a roulette table about to throw away a small fortune, captivates Daniel Deronda. As their lives become intertwined, they are also transformed by suffering, misfortune, revelations and Daniel's fascination with the Jewish singer Mirah. Daniel Deronda shocked Victorian readers with its portrayal of the Jewish experience in British society, and remains a moving and epic portrayal of human passions. "The Penguin English Library" contains 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.

About George Eliot

Mary Ann Evans (George Eliot) (1819-80) was a philosopher, journalist and translator before she became a novelist, her first stories being published in 1856. She led an unconventional life, co-editing the left-wing journal Westminster Review for three years and living for twenty years with the married man and philosopher George Henry Lewes. Her novels are among the greatest of the nineteenth century. The Mill on the Floss, Silas Marner and Middlemarch are all published in the Penguin English Library.
