Description

One of the masterpieces of English literature, Daniel Deronda tells the intertwined stories of two different characters as they each come to discover of the truth of their natures. Gwendolen Harleth is the high-spirited beauty of an impoverished upper-class family. In order to restore their fortunes, she unwittingly traps herself in an oppressive marriage. She turns for solace and guidance to the high-minded young Daniel Deronda, the adopted son of an aristocratic Englishman, who is searching for his own path in life. But when Deronda rescues a poor Jewish girl from drowning, he discovers a world of Jewish culture previously unknown to him. When he finally uncovers the long-hidden secret of his own parentage, he must confront his true identity and destiny.

Professional reviews

"Don't worry, no one else (outside the English department) has heard of it either. This is a very large human comedy/social commentary reminiscent of Jane Austen, but with more caustic wit. The audiobook format can perform a valuable function by returning obscure but noteworthy works of the past to our attention. But doing so, particularly with a period piece, requires a kind of advocacy on the part of the performer beyond mere transcription. We need to be shown how the writing works. This Nadia May does admirably, making aristocratic nineteenth-century English sound natural and familiar, while projecting a keen awareness of Eliot's humor and irony. DANIEL DERONDA may not catch on or become a BBC mini-series, but anyone who is interested can now hear what it was intended to sound like. J.N. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
