George Eliot s Romola , writes Robert Kiely in his Introduction, embodies the author s 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, Eliot s 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 Savonarola s teachings, then crushed by the religious leader s ultimate failure, Romola finds her salvation in noble self-sacrifice. This Modern Library Paperback Classic is set from the 1878 Cabinet Edition."
