About this book

This collection brings together new articles by leading scholars who reappraise George Eliot in her bicentenary year as an interdisciplinary thinker and writer for our times. Here, researchers, students, teachers and the general public gain access to new perspectives on Eliot’s vast interests and knowledge, informed by the nineteenth-century British culture in which she lived.  Examining Eliot’s wide-ranging engagement with Victorian historical research, periodicals, poetry, mythology, natural history, realism, the body, gender relations, and animal studies, these essays construct an exciting new interdisciplinary agenda for future Eliot studies.
