Daniel Deronda by George Eliot (ca. 1900)
DANIEL DERONDA. By George Eliot, M. A. Donohue & Co., Chicago.
Daniel Deronda is a novel by George Eliot, first published in 1876. It was the last novel she completed and the only one set in the contemporary Victorian society of her day. Its mixture of social satire and moral searching, along with a sympathetic rendering of Jewish proto-Zionist and Kaballistic ideas has made it a controversial final statement of one of the greatest of Victorian novelists.
In this work, the life stories of the principal characters Daniel Deronda and Gwendolen Harleth are largely revealed in flashbacks. The novel has been filmed three times, once as a silent feature and twice for television.
