Course Description
George Eliot’s fourth novel, Romola, superimposes Victorian themes and concerns onto the religious, political, and personal lives of 15th-century Florence. The result is a literary experience like no other; a challenging yet fascinating exploration of language, idealism, vision, and ambition, as the title character wrestles with the multiple power structures she is born into.

This class invites participants to immerse themselves in the world(s) of the novel by reading and discussing it in consecutive parts, as originally published.
Eight sessions. $305/$274.50. Led by Steven J. Venturino
