Rate this:
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.

Ground-breaking classic that tackles anti-Semitism in 19th-century Britain. It's certainly dense reading, but the payoff is huge--fully fleshed out characters that provide great insights into issues of wealth, vanity, pride and power.

A critique on the acceptability of people in Victorian society at a time when certain factions were considered outside society. Daniel Daronda is a lost man - he has no real identity except as a love child of a noble man. However he must find his own way in such a time and place. How he discoveres his own identity and accepts it makes for a wonderful story that is ahead of its time.
