Overview

*Illustrated
*Includes Table of Contents

George Eliot was one of the best writers of the 19th century, but By George, this was no man. Instead, George Eliot was the pen name of Mary Anne Evans, a skilled female novelist who wanted to make sure her work was taken seriously by using a masculine pen name. The practice was widely used in Europe in the 19th century, including by the Bronte sisters.

Regardless of her name, her work became well known in its time for realism and its psychological insight, including novels like Adam Bede (1859), The Mill on the Floss (1860), Silas Marner (1861), Middlemarch (1871–72), and Daniel Deronda (1876), most of them set in provincial England. Her work also infused religion and politics, and Victorian Era readers were fond of her books’ depictions of society.

This edition of Eliot’s Romola is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with over a dozen pictures of Eliot.

Be careful this copy is VOLUME 1 and there is no listing that tells you this. I have trouble locating Volume 2! I will need a magnifying glass to read the miniature book covers.
