When Romola arrived at the entrance of San Marco she found one of theFrati waiting there in expectation of her arrival. Monna Brigidaretired into the adjoining church, and Romola was conducted to the doorof the chapter-house in the outer cloister, whither the invalid had beenconveyed; no woman being allowed admission beyond this precinct. Slowly Romola fell on her knees, and in the very act a tremor came overher; in the renunciation of her proud erectness, her mental attitudeseemed changed, and she found herself in a new state of passiveness. Her brother began to speak again

George Eliot draws an interesting portrait of her, creating empathy and sympathy in the reader, yet also alluding in a quietly strategic way that "there is more to learn" about this woman and her circumstances. Enter the long-traveling son, who has made his fortune in the middle east and has the potential to restore the estate to its former grandeur. FELIX HOLT is a return to form, but it's not entirely successful. There's a very good explanation of why this is the case in Leavis' GREAT TRADITION.

George Eliot’s Romola, writes Robert Kiely in his Introduction, embodies the author’s wrestling with her own best .

Set in Florence in 1492, a time of great political and religious turmoil, Eliot’s novel blends vivid fictional characters with historical figures such as Savonarola, Machiavelli, and the Medicis. When Romola, the virtuous daughter of a blind scholar, marries Tito Melema, a charismatic young Greek, she is bound to a man whose escalating betrayals threaten to destroy all that she holds dear.

George Eliot, the pen named used by Mary Anne Evans, wrote popular works that mirrored the settings and ideology of contemporary Victorian England. She was brought up in the Church of England, where she developed strong moral convictions that carried over into her fiction. During a visit to Florence in 1860 it was suggested to Eliot that the historical Fra Girolamo Savonarola would make a good subject for a novel, so Eliot spent her visit, and many months after, exhaustively researching Florentine history and culture. Her effort is undeniably evident within the pages of "Romola", however Eliot has been criticized for using a 15th Century setting to deal with the 19th Century issues of Victorian England. Romola is the female protagonist through which the story is rendered; her intellectual and religious growth, often painful, reflects the religious and cultural transitions of the Italian Renaissance in Florence.
