Product Description

Review

These early stories show her efforts to write about unremarka ble people with an insight that is both accurate and compassionate. (Sunday Times)

It is an excellent edition for a student because, besides being so reasonably priced, it contains a most concise chronology of George Eliot and explanatory notes which have been researched with great thoroughness. (Hilda Gunn, The George Eliot Fellowship Review)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A beautifully written collection of stories which all revolve in some way around clerical life in 19th century England. Janet's Repentance was the most compelling story in my view. The themes include love and Christianity while still at points being critical of ogranised religion. Other themes include alcoholism and domestic abuse, a risky subject for Victorian literature but nevertheless a timelessly important one. Unlike some of Eliot's grander books these stories a lot shorter.

The Oxford paperback version of this is put together with clear font and good quality paper.
