Fiction by George Eliot

George Eliot's novels are reproduced from the 1878 "Cabinet Edition" of George Eliot's Works, published in London and Edinburgh by William Blackwood and Sons. This complete collection, published two years before Eliot's death, represents the final corrected version of her works. Although many subsequent editions have been published, the Cabinet Edition is their foundation and this set remains the scholarly standard for citing Eliot’s words.

When citing these works, the George Eliot Archive recommends using a short version of the novel title, the volume number, and the page number(s). Adam Bede, for example, could be (AB 1: 55) with a Daniel Deronda quotation cited as (DD 3: 144) within the text. In the list of references, remember to add "George Eliot Archive" and our website address, www.georgeeliotarchive.org, after the print publication information.

The digitized Cabinet Edition remains the best option for accurate quotations and has the additional benefit of being searchable, downloadable, and freely available to anyone with internet access.
