Have just Published:
ROMOLA—A new novel. By the Author of "Adam Bede," &c. Numerous Illustrations.
8vo, Paper, $1.25; Cloth, $1.50.
"Romola is a performance of which no other woman of genius among us would have
been capable than precisely George Eliot.—The Reader (London).
There are noble things to be found in "Romola," which
will make the reader's heart
burn within him. It will be scarcely possible to rise from the perusal without
being penetrated by the "joy of elevated thoughts," without feeling a desire to
cease from a life of self-pleasing, and to embody in action that sense of
obligation, of obedience to duty,
which is, indeed, the crowning distinction that has been conferred on
man, the high gift in which all others
culminate. This is high praise; and a work that can
produce this effect, if only on a single reader, has not been
written in vain.—The Athenaeum (London).
Such an intellectual study, to use an artist's phrase, as "Tito Melema," has not
been placed before the world in this generation; and we know not which to wonder
at most, the accuracy of the anatomical knowledge displayed, or the art with
which that knowledge is infused—there is no other fitting word—into the reader's
mind. Shakespeare might have exulted in Tito.—Spectator
George Eliot has Sir Walter Scott's art for revivifying the past, but not
Scott's dynamical force in making you plunge into it with as headlong an
interest as into the present. For this she compensates by a deeper and wider
intellectual grasp. * * It is marvelous that the wide and calm imaginative power
of the writer should have produced a work which is likely to be permanently
identified with English literature, in which Italy and England may feel a common
pride. * * The great and concentrated interest of the book—at least after the
wonderful development of Tito's character—is the portrait of Savonarola, which
it is almost impossible not to feel as faithful as history as it is great as
romance. * * His portrait evinces almost as great a graphic power, and far
more scrupulous care, than Sir Walter Scott used in those pictures of the
various Stewarts.—Spectator (London).
