Eloquence
This volume looks at George Eliot as inaugurator of a modern fictional world, as a provider of texts which stimulate radical questioning in religion, sociology, politics, economics and history. This volume provides in-depth comment on all her novels, placing her in the context of her period. Allan Bellringer doubts the omniscience of the George Eliot authorial voice, regards her main theme of consentenaity of development as one which problematizes unity and centrality, and examines the six main novels and six shorter tales as loci of cultural controversy which are still at the forefront of critical attention over 100 years after the death of this woman-writer. Hers was a death, which whenever it had occurred, would always have been felt as premature. Allan W. Bellringer is the author of "Henry James", also in the "Macmillan Modern Novelists" series.
