In this, her last published novel, Eliot used Jewish concerns thematically, symbolically, and character-wise. With few exceptions, there has been little serious analysis of Eliot's knowledge of Judaism and the use to which she put it in her creative work. This study made use of her letters and notebooks to investigate these questions.
