From the Publisher Taking a broadly chronological approach, this study reviews Eliot's contact with Dante and Italian literature in the context of a wider Italian culture during the 19th-century national revival, the "Risorgimento". Demonstrates Eliot's deepening engagement with the work of Dante through close readings of several novels, and argues that the "Divine Comedy" underpins the moral world of her novels and provides a sustaining metaphor for their central theme of moral growth through suffering.
