Review: The Essays of “George Eliot”

30 Jun


The Essays of “George Eliot” by George Eliot
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Some of the essays are very interesting, I have found topics I did not expect. I really like the essay on the rise of European Women’s writing and the introduction to seventeenth Century salon phenomena in France. I also like Eliot’s criticism of silly novels by lady novelists, her criticism of evangelical writings and her essay on the German writer, Hein. Eliot is clearly widely read in multiple languages and fields, and I believe she sometimes proves herself, with the soundness of her logic, a better critic than the novelist she is.
