Written by Monika Mueller (teaches American and English literature at the University of Cologne, Germany), George Elliot U.S.: Transatlantic Literary and Cultural Perspectives is an extensive work of literary criticism and analysis that explores the complicated and reciprocal relationship between George Elliot's fiction and the writings of her American contemporaries, including Nathaniel Hawthorne, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Margaret Fuller, and Ralph Waldo Emerson. George Elliot U.S. also scrutinizes Elliot's lasting influence on American fiction to the modern day, and particularly contemplates modern American adaptions of her work. The evolution of a postdoctoral thesis, George Elliot U.S. is a highly scholarly and seminal contribution to literary criticism shelves, and particularly recommended for college libraries and students of Elliot's works.
