ABSTRACT
A literary criticism of the novels "Middlemarch," by George Eliot, and "Jane Eyre," by Charlotte Bronte, is presented. It explores the novels' attempts to depict the transition from from erotic passion, or eros, to committed love within the framework of marriage. It considers critic Denis de Rougemont's theorized conflict between eros and love, as well as critic René Girard's theory of the central role of death for self transcendence.
