Critics’ Reviews

“Broadview Press and editor Gregory Maertz have produced a text whose rich but judicious contextual annotation, notably highlighting Eliot’s deep immersion in German culture, makes this a crucial edition of what is arguably the greatest Victorian novel of them all.” — Michael McKeon, Rutgers University

“Gregory Maertz’s fine new edition of Middlemarch allows readers to consider the novel in relation to a range of documents—reviews and other writings by George Eliot, contemporary reviews of the novel, and contextual material. This additional material both enriches our reading of the novel and its concerns and expands our knowledge of the period.” — Mark Turner, King’s College London
