Romola (Penguin Classics)

Romola (Penguin Classics)

George Eliot


certainly one of George Eliot's such a lot formidable and imaginitive novels, Romola is decided in Renaissance Florence throughout the turbulent years following the expulsion of the strong Medici relations in which the zealous non secular reformer Savonarola rose to manage the town. At its middle is Romola, the committed daughter of a blind student, married to the smart yet finally treacherous Tito whose duplicity in either love and politics threatens to wreck every little thing she values, and he or she needs to break free to discover her personal course in existence. defined by means of Eliot as 'written with my top blood', the tale of Romola's highbrow and religious awakening is a compelling portrayal of a Utopian heroine, performed out opposed to a turbulent old backdrop.
