Am y llyfr

Mae’r astudiaeth feirniadol hon yn cymharu’r eiliadau brawychus a melodramatig yn ffuglen George Eliot gyda detholiadau o nofelau Gothig sy’n ysgogi gwefr synhwyrus. Trwy wneud hynny, dadleuir bod stori afaelgar ynghyd â ffigurau a throsiadau Gothic yn arwyddocaol yn uchelgais Eliot ar gyfer y nofel Fictoraidd.

Dyfyniadau

In this highly engaging book, Royce Mahawatte takes on the great icon of Victorian literary realism, George Eliot, and presents a nuanced and compelling argument for reading her work alongside Gothic fiction. By teasing out the complex and contradictory relationship Eliot had with the Gothic novel, Mahawatte not only offers a fresh take on Eliot's work, but also greatly expands our understanding of the part Gothic played in Victorian literary culture. Dr. Catherine Spooner, Senior Lecturer in English Literature, Lancaster University
