[Review of] Still Crazy About George Eliot 200 Years Later

Description

Paul Davies’s brief for the essays comprising Still Crazy About George Eliot 200 Years Later was, in many ways, a challenging one: write an essay celebrating an aspect of George Eliot’s life and work in a ‘conversational tone’, avoiding a ‘dry old academic style’ with ‘footnotes and references’ (11). Is it possible to write about an
author around whom a vast, global body of literary scholarship has accrued in a way that is accessible – enticing, even – to a non-specialist audience?
