Are these sentences correct:

1) Fielding was considered a great writer not only by Eliot.
2)Fielding was considered a great writer, not only by Eliot.

I expect the 'not only...' phrase to be followed by 'but also...'. The sentences don't sound correct to me.

#1 is fine, no need for a comma, and no obligation (grammatically speaking) to add a 'but also' phrase.
