In part because Romola is also a product of the times in which she lives. She has not been brought up as a Christian but she has been born into a Catholic world. Gwendolen Harleth in Daniel Deronda is also driven by superstition.

When we first see Gwendolen— in media res as Daniel watches her—she is gambling. Daniel Deronda may not walk off with Gwendolen at the end, choosing the Jewish singer Mira Lapidoth as his partner, but the Christian and Jewish narratives are already entwined in the romance of Catherine Arrowpoint and the musician Herr Klesmer. Deronda, the educated Anglican who discovers his Jewish origins, acts for the reader as a reassuring frame for representing both the excessive fears of Gwendolen and the fervent hopes of Mordecai.

She undergoes her personal Copernican revolution when Deronda announces his departure for the Middle East at the end of the novel. Eliot counterbalances this form of framing with the more dynamic and interactive relation between Daniel and Mordecai. But Moredcai is different. The timescale of his influence on Deronda is not one of brief catharsis or dramatic conversion that will be undermined through later ethical failings. Isolated and dying, he wants to pass on a legacy and a life-long vocation to Deronda This leads Deronda to reflect on issues of superstition and enthusiasm.

In contrast to Romola, Deronda decides for himself what he can gain from his relation with Mordecai. I call a man fanatical when his enthusiasm is narrow and hoodwinked, so that he has no sense of proportions, and becomes unjust and unsympathetic to men who are out of his own track.

Social Figures

Mordecai is an enthusiast: I should like to keep that word for the highest order of minds—those who care supremely for grand and general benefits to mankind. Camden Farebrother. Edward Casaubon gives us one of many portraits of a clergyman in the early s before the Whig government has begun its reforms of the Church of England.

Eliot contrasts the Barton to the Rev. Chapter 18 of Middlemarch offers the most sustained reflection on an Anglican clergyman since the Rev. Adolphus Irwine in Adam Bede. Like Farebrother, Irwine is distinguished by his love for his family and sacrifice on their behalf. Camden Farebrother from his clerical duties and replace him with the Rev. Walter Tyke We mostly see Farebrother through the eyes of Lydgate, who notes that he does not drink punch, but does play whist Lydgate goes to visit Farebrother and discovers that he is not only a minister of the church but also an amateur naturalist who supports his mother, aunt and sister on his small income They eventually come to discuss the imminent vote.

i. religion, philosophy and literature

In Chapter 18, the eventual voting over the appointment of the chaplaincy for the hospital ends in a tie and Lydgate casts the deciding vote for Tyke Bulstrode has brought for support the only clergyman present at the vote, the Rev. What is remarkable about this chapter is that it depicts a reforming and ostensibly secular body assessing difficult issues of spiritual integrity and remuneration for pastoral duties.

The hospital board in effect makes a clerical decision. This was itself a very contentious aspect of the s, as various committees and commissions were appointed by Parliament to reform the Church of England. The Reverend Farebrother is the only disinterested man in a swirling sea of interests. Pragmatism and a wider perspective of ethics wins the day over religious enthusiasm and Farebrother gains the living at Lowick.

The good fortunes of the Rev. Camden Farebrother leave us with the viable possibilities of a tempered Anglicanism in an age of reform.
