Romola Ch. 68–72  [14/14]

[George Eliot]


Novel, Serial


Physiology, Associationism, Psychology

    As with an earlier description of Tito Melema's amoral psychology [see CM1/6/2/1], the narrator employs a physiological metaphor to depict Romola's mind as 'the emotions that were disengaged from the people around her rushed back into the old deep channels of use and affection' (137).
