The George Eliot Review

Below you will find a list of our previous reviews.

We are hoping to make all our back numbers of the GE Review available online. This is being done in co-operation with Beverley Rilett and Nebraska University, who are funding the project.

Bev R

Beverley Rilett is shown here exploring the delights of Red Deeps, just half a mile from Griff House, where Mary Ann Evans lived until she was 21. It is now a hotel and restaurant.

Beverley and her team have done a wonderful job digitising the back numbers of the George Eliot Review. It is still in its trial form and will go fully live later. But you can see what it is shaping up to be by going to this link:

The programme of digitising the back numbers will also allow us to show thanks for the initial idea of producing a Review which Kathleen Adams undertook in 1970. Later she was joined by Graham Handley and then by John Rignall and Beryl Gray, and more recently by Michael Davis. We are grateful to them all for their commitment to scholarship and accuracy, and to what they do to further an interest in George Eliot. The present editors are John Rignall and Michael Davis.

Meanwhile, copies of some of them are still available for purchase as hard copies. Go to Store for details. Contents lists of some years are also available on this site.
