Only in her final novel, in 1876, did George Eliot turn to contemporary English and European life as material for the expression of her own idealism. Daniel Deronda is a psychologically incisive investigation, probing the egoism of a spoiled girl and her increasing awareness of consciencethrough suffering. Gwendolen comes to regard Daniel as her moral and spiritual mentor, but chance, the revelation of his Jewish birth, and his practical and sympathetic identification with his race draw him away from her. The text is that of Graham Handley's Clarendon edition, which is based on the novel's first published form. emergent nationalism and the bitter internal struggle

Ground-breaking classic that tackles anti-Semitism in 19th-century Britain. It's certainly dense reading, but the payoff is huge--fully fleshed out characters that provide great insights into issues of wealth, vanity, pride and power.

A critique on the acceptability of people in Victorian society at a time when certain factions were considered outside society. Daniel Daronda is a lost man - he has no real identity except as a love child of a noble man. However he must find his own way in such a time and place. How he discoveres his own identity and accepts it makes for a wonderful story that is ahead of its time.
