Meet the Author

George Eliot, the pen name of Mary Ann or Marian Evans (1819-1880), was an English novelist of the first rank among Victorian novelists. She was born near Nuneaton, the daughter of a land agent. After her father’s death, she became an assistant editor for the Westminster Review from 1851 to 1854. She wrote her first fiction in 1857 and her first full-length novel, Adam Bede, in 1859. Her novels presented a beautifully observed world of peasants and townsfolk, but her greatest preoccupation was with moral problems, especially the moral development of her characters.
