It's commonplace to excuse traces of antisemitism etc in Dickens and others as simply reflecting the cultural norms of their time. But that isn't universal. Daniel Deronda, for instance, by his slightly younger contemporary George Eliot, is a remarkably sympathetic and prophetic study of early Zionism, as well as being one of the greatest English novels.
Exactly so and DANIEL DERONDA is a fantastic book; so too was the Brit series made from it.
