    none..., any more than...

    "But none of these fables is "grand" because it operates by a single logic, any more than Middlemarch does."

    Please help me clarify this sentence!

    Could you check your source - the sentence does not look quite right.

    Ok - I've now read it again (several times) and it has begun to make sense.

    None of these fables is grand [in nature] because it operates by [within] a single logic any more than Middlemarch [is grand because it operates within a single logic]

    I hope this makes sense!
