...<lol- ogy, is thorough (chapter 8 alone has sixty-seven fi)otnotes), accurate in ii spot chick, and often suggests additional reading. The study is supported by thirty- six black-and-white illustrations, most of which are put to good use in the text; like the footnotes, they are grouped together at the end of’ the \wlume. Strangely, there is not one example of’ landscape painting among the illust ra- tions, although Witemeyer devotes an entire chapter to “Landscape and the Beholder.” And, although Witemeyer does niention photography briefly in the text, the book contains no substantive discussion or examples of‘the early Brit- ish masters of the new discipline, such as Fox ‘I’albot, Hill, Adamson, (:anieron, or Carroll, who shared and reflected many of Eliot’s notions of’the importance of the visual arts. A chapter concerning the influence of photography would have been a welcome addition. Witerneyer’s survey is nevertheless an important contribution to George Eliot studies precisely because it assesses and revalues the relation between literature and the visual arts in her work. His reluctance to draw glib or general parallels between the sister arts and his careful identification of‘exact points of’compari- son and influence provide a solid model for future interdisciplinary studies. But the best justification for the book comes in a statement by Witemeyer of‘ Eliot’s own attitude: “She knew that art can help one see and feel, and indeed she valued art chiefly because it can” (p. 156). George Eliot aiid the Visriul Arts should help us also to “see and feel” both the sensitive complexity of her fiction and the creative reciprocity of the Victorian arts.
