About the book:

George Eliots Romola, writes Robert Kiely in his Introduction, embodies the authors wrestling with her own best theories of history and human nature as a creative experiment of the highest order. Set in Florence in 1492, a time of great political and religious turmoil, Eliots novel blends vivid fictional characters with historical figures such as Savonarola, Machiavelli, and the Medicis. When Romola, the virtuous daughter of a blind scholar, marries Tito Melema, a charismatic young Greek, she is bound to a man whose escalating betrayals threaten to destroy all that she holds dear. Profoundly inspired by Savonarolas teachings, then crushed by the religious leaders ultimate failure, Romola finds her salvation in noble self-sacrifice. This Modern Library Paperback Classic is set from the 1878 Cabinet Edition.
