It is one of the curiosities of English literary history that the most remarkable English novel about Jews should have been written by a non-Jew - a Victorian woman, moreover, who is generally regarded as the greatest English novelist of her time. The Jewish Odyssey of George Eliot examines why a woman who was firmly labeled an unbeliever would take up the cause of Judaism and its promise of nationhood and statehood.
