Synopses & Reviews
Romola is a historical novel set in late 15th-century Florence and is the story of a high-minded girl who marries a self-indulgent and unscrupulous Greek, Tito Melma.
This work contains both the text of "Daniel Deronda" and a study upon it. The novel uses the hero, Deronda, to examine the English Jews, a society within a society. Gwendolen comes to regard Daniel as her moral and spiritual mentor, but the revelation of his Jewish birth draws him away from her.
