YMMV / Daniel Deronda

  • Retroactive Recognition: That's Jamie Bamber as Hans Myrick in the TV adaptation.
  • Vindicated by History: Essentially no other prior British literary work had sympathetic Jewish characters and up until the mid 20th century, the general critical comment was pretty much "decent novel, shame it focused so much on those Jews".
  • Write Who You Know: Eliot partly modeled Mordecai after her friend, Immanuel Deutsch.
