9780140434354: Felix Holt: The Radical (Penguin Classics)

When the young nobleman Harold Transome returns to England from the colonies with a self-made fortune, he scandalizes the town of Treby Magna with his decision to stand for Parliament as a Radical. But after the idealistic Felix Holt also returns to the town, the difference between Harold's opportunistic values and Holt's profound beliefs becomes apparent. Forthright, brusque and driven by a firm desire to educate the working-class, Felix is at first viewed with suspicion by many, including the elegant but vain Esther Lyon, the daughter of the local clergyman. As she discovers, however, his blunt words conceal both passion and deep integrity. Soon the romantic and over-refined Esther finds herself overwhelmed by a heart-wrenching decision: whether to choose the wealthy Transome as a husband, or the impoverished but honest Felix Holt.

Review:

"The Broadview Press Felix Holt, the Radical is a handsomely-produced and reader-friendly edition of George Eliot's powerful novel of social ambition and illicit love. Generous selections of contextual material show how George Eliot's theories of artistic production and understanding of political realities shape the novel, and what her contemporaries made of it. Editors Baker and Womack deploy their expertise in Victorian studies to illuminate this work for the twenty-first century."--Margaret Harris

"This edition carefully documents the politics of composition and of England at a critical time in the author's and the country's life. Useful appendices establish the context for understanding the novel and its background. The Condition of England Question at last comes alive!"--Ira Nadel
