The George Eliot Review 32 (2001) Published by The George Eliot Fellowship, http://georgeeliot.org/
The welcome purchase by the British Library of George Eliot / Jane Senior letters isn't always reported accurately. In a recent Woman's Hour Kathryn Hughes seemed to imply the correspondence was new to scholars. Haight's Yale Edition contains ten letters from George Eliot to Jane Senior, including three of the series in the news. The unpublished letters extend and stimulate existing knowledge. We shall discuss this and other subjects at a two-day symposium to be held at the University of London Institute of English Studies on 17-18 January 2002.
