Deronda, a high-minded young man searching for his path in life, finds himself drawn by a series of dramatic encounters into two contrasting worlds: the English country-house life of Gwendolen Harleth, a high-spirited beauty trapped in an oppressive marriage, and the very different lives of a poor Jewish girl, Mirah, and her family. As Deronda uncovers the long-hidden secret of his own parentage, Eliot's moving and suspenseful narrative opens up a world of Jewish experience previously unknown to the Victorian novel.… (mehr)

    Bildnis einer Dame von Henry James (ncgraham)
    ncgraham: Surprised this recommendation hasn't already been made ... scholars throughout the years have noted Gwendolen Harleth's influence upon James in creating Isabel Archer.

    Die kühle Woge des Glücks von Edith Wharton (davidcla)
    davidcla: Wharton's 1913 novel is excellent, and very interesting to read as a companion to George Eliot's Daniel Deronda. Wharton's Undine casts Eliot's Gwendolen in a new light. And vice versa.

I blame BBC's adaption of Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South for my obsession with this book. You know that gorgeous green striped dress that Margaret wears at the train station? Well I was putting movies away at work and I saw that dress on the back of a cover. It was Romola Garai on the back of BBC's Daniel Deronda. Given the fact that the cover also contained Hugh Dancy (someone I have loved since my Ella Enchanted days), I took it home and was hooked.

Middlemarch had been on my list for a while but this Eliot novel rose in priority. I loved it. I loved Mirah and her fierce devotion to her country, culture and belief system. I loved Daniel and his staunch commitment to behaving in alignment with his beliefs. I felt for Gwendolyn in her naivety and, well, fear. Because isn't it fear that motivates her?

Eliot is a master of creating living, breathing, growing characters. I'm excited to read more of her work. ( )

I appreciated the complex nature and depth of Daniel Deronda, but didn't enjoy it nearly as much as Middlemarch, and found I got rather bogged down for a while in the middle. ( )

This book is good but it is pretty intense. I think part of the problem is that today we don't really understand what it was like to be a Jew 100 years ago.

PS I just watched the Masterpiece Theater 2002 version and the guy who plays Deronda is amazing. The other characters not as good, especially Mirah. ( )

Eliot, George. Daniel Deronda. 1876. Introduction by Earl L. Dachslager. Barnes and Noble Classics, 2005.
There are novelists who, whatever their status as artists, write with their market and their audience always looking over their shoulders. This is true of Dickens, Thackeray, and Trollope, who were all involved in marketing. By the time Eliot wrote Daniel Deronda, her last novel, she must have felt marketing constraints as an easy rein on her work. In Deronda, she concentrates idea and motivation, to the cost of most of the elements of fiction that usually made a Victorian novel sell. Consider action. Most of it is kept discretely offstage. When a major character dies, we are told about it only in second- or third-hand accounts. Her publisher convinced her to rewrite one horse-riding accident, the kind of scene that Trollope would have made a chapter of, to make it a bit more realistic. There is a marriage plot or two, but the treatment is perfunctory. There are two major characters, Daniel and Gwendolyn, who, despite every expectation, are seldom in the same room together. Will their romance blossom or go bust? Their relatives may care, but Eliot does not seem to care. There is some satire aimed at English snobbery, racism, and boorishness, but compared to the satire in Dickens, Thackeray, and Trollope, it is mild indeed. What does interest Eliot, then, is the struggle of her main characters to discover and who they are and what should matter to them. Daniel needs to reconcile his Jewish cultural heritage with his national upbringing. Gwendolyn, who is one of the shallowest, most immature, and self-absorbed heroines ever, must learn what it takes to be an adult with a moral compass. Eliot’s master skill as a novelist is in building scenes that bring these themes together. In short, her characters must make an identity for themselves and find meaning in a world that no longer provides pat answers. That quest is what makes the novel seem almost modern. ( )

To judge wisely I suppose we must know how things appear to the unwise; that kind of appearance making the larger part of the world’s history.
A nonchalance about sales seems to belong universally to the second-hand book-business. In most other trades you find generous men who are anxious to sell you their wares for your own welfare; but even a Jew ... One is led to believe that a secondhand bookseller may belong to that unhappy class of men who have no belief in the good of what they get their living by.
Emotion was at the acute point, where it is not distinguishable fromsensation.
Day followed day with that want of perceived leisure which belongs to lives where there is no work to mark off intervals.
