Days before their arrival to Buenos Aires , Argentina, Nijinsky proposed to Romola and they married in port on 10 September , shortly after they arrived. Their marriage had severe effects on Nijinsky's career. Romola became pregnant right away, and Nijinsky missed performances due to his own symptoms of couvade syndrome.

This gave Diaghilev legal grounds to fire him, which he did via a telegram. He generally did not keep any married dancers in the company. With the outbreak of war, the newlywed couple and their infant daughter were classified as enemy aliens because of Nijinsky's Russian nationality; they were put on house arrest at the home of Romola's mother, Emilia Markus Pulszky.

After two years as war prisoners in Hungary, they gained permission to leave for New York with the aid of Diaghilev and international political leaders.

They embarked on a tour of North America, followed by a tour to South America. During Nijinsky's final three-year engagements with the Ballets Russes, he had struggled to help manage the tours, which caused him a great deal of stress. Two months after the armistice at the end of World War I , Nijinsky began to exhibit signs of a severe psychosis.

Romola yacht NOT for charter*

Literary scholars have drawn comparisons between the setting of the novel and George Eliot's contemporary Victorian England : "Philosophically confused, morally uncertain, and culturally uprooted, [Florence] was a prototype of the upheaval of nineteenth-century England". Renaissance Florence was therefore a convenient setting for a historical novel that allowed exotic characters and events to be examined in Victorian fashion. Romola is the female protagonist through whom the surrounding world is evaluated. Contemporary and modern critics have questioned the likelihood of the level of scholarship attributed to women such as Romola in Renaissance Italy, and have pointed to the possible role of the title character as a Victorian critique of the constrained lot of women in that period, as well as in Eliot's contemporary period.

Felicia Bonaparte speculated about the title character as a "thoroughly contemporary figure, the Victorian intellectual struggling to resolve the dilemmas of the modern age". The psychological and religious introspection seen in Eliot's other novels is also seen in Romola.

Richard Hutton , writing in The Spectator , in , observed that "[t]he greatest artistic purpose of the story is to trace out the conflict between liberal culture and the more passionate form of the Christian faith in that strange era, which has so many points of resemblance with the present".

In Romola , the title character has a non-religious and scholarly, yet insular, upbringing. She is gradually exposed to the wider religious world, which impacts her life at fortuitous moments. Yet continued immersion in religious life highlights its incompatibility with her own virtues, and by the end of the story she has adopted a humanist, empathic middle-ground.

Romola is George Eliot's fourth published novel. Set in Renaissance Italy, it is isolated from her other novels, which were set in 19th-century England. Also for the first time, George Eliot published her story in serialised format and with a different publisher. Nevertheless, Hutton described the novel as "one of the greatest works of modern fiction […] probably the author's greatest work". George Eliot herself described her labour in writing the novel as one about which she could "swear by every sentence as having been written with my best blood, such as it is, and with the most ardent care for veracity of which my nature is capable".

The attention to detail exhibited in the novel was a focus of both praise and criticism. Anthony Trollope , having read the first instalment of Romola , expressed wonder at the toil Eliot must have "endured in getting up the work", but also cautioned her against excessive erudition, urging her not to "fire too much over the heads of her readers".
