About this book

George Eliot was passionate about music and her writing is steeped in musical allusion. This book explores musical reference in her work and investigates contexts such as Eliot's friendship with Wagner, the legacy of Romanticism, music's role in scientific theory, and the ambivalent status of female musicality. The book establishes how intensely Eliot's musical allusions are informed by her contemporary culture and offers a fresh view of the experimental writing through which she took literary realism into previously uncharted regions.

Reviews

'...beautifully written.' - The Times Literary Supplement

'In George Eliot, Music and Victorian Culture, da Sousa Correa takes our understanding of Victorian music and literature to new areas of complexity and depth, areas that, it is humbling to recognize, were just one part of Eliot's extraordinary cultural repertoire.' - Women: A Cultural Review
