[Review of] Thomas Albrecht, The Ethical Vision of George Eliot

Title

[Review of] Thomas Albrecht, The Ethical Vision of George Eliot

Description

‘No man is an island’, according to John Donne. For George Eliot however, writing in the 1854 letter which opens Thomas Albrecht’s study of The Ethical Vision of George Eliot, ‘[w]e are all islands’. The moral question of isolation or isolationism raised here – highly resonant today when the motto ‘Together Apart’ is everywhere – might seem at odds with an author so concerned with the exertion of sympathy.
