In contrast, this study focuses on Fontanes communality in life, thought, and art with an eminent contemporary English novelist, George Eliot, and delineates how his experience of English life and literature enabled him to join, then transcend the European tradition of the realist novel and develop into a forerunner of modernism.

Part I of this investigation emphasizes the impact of Fontanes and Eliots cross-cultural experience in the formation of a strikingly similar humanist Weltansicht evolving primarily through their attempt to come to terms with predominant philosophical currents of their times, Feuerbachian optimism and Schopenhauerian pessimism.

Part II discusses Fontanes and Eliots aesthetic theories where John Ruskins principles are revealed to have contributed the catalyst in this communality of aesthetics as Feuerbachs did to their humanism. The unique constellation of humanism and determinism in both Weltansicht and aesthetics then provides the focal point for Part III, an investigation of the authors artistic practice through analyses of three representative novels, Middlemarch, Vor dem Sturm, and Der Stechlin.
