George Eliot and the Landscape of Time: Narrative Form and Protestant Apocalyptic History

Synopsis

Carpenter discusses apocalytptic narrative schemes in Romola, Adam Bede, Middlemarch, Daniel Deronda, and The Legend of Jubal. In the context of nineteenth-century British interpretation of the prophesies, this study reveals an unsuspected visionary poetics in Eliot's writings and demonstrates that her later works rewrite Protestant apocalyptics in both romantic and satiric styles, suggesting a new approach to Victorian narrative form.
