Meet the Author

Mary Anne (Mary Ann, Marian) Evans (22 November 1819 – 22 December 1880), better known by her pen name George Eliot, was an English novelist, journalist and translator, and one of the leading writers of the Victorian era. She is the author of seven novels, including The Mill on the Floss (1860), Silas Marner (1861), Middlemarch (1871–72), and Daniel Deronda (1876), most of them set in provincial England and well known for their realism and psychological insight.

She used a male pen name, she said, to ensure her works were taken seriously. Female authors were published under their own names during Eliot's life, but she wanted to escape the stereotype of women only writing lighthearted romances.

From Adam Bede to The Mill on the Floss and Silas Marner, Eliot presented the cases of social outsiders and small-town persecution. Felix Holt, the Radical and The Legend of Jubal were overtly political, and political crisis is at the heart of Middlemarch, in which she presents the stories of a number of denizens of a small English town on the eve of the Reform Bill of 1832; the novel is notable for its deep psychological insight and sophisticated character portraits.

Readers in the Victorian era particularly praised her books for their depictions of rural society, for which she drew on her own early experiences, and she shared with Wordsworth the belief that there was much interest and importance in the mundane details of ordinary country lives. Eliot did not, however, confine herself to her bucolic roots. Romola, an historical novel set in late 15th century Florence and touching on the lives of several real persons such as the priest Girolamo Savonarola, displays her wider reading and interests. In The Spanish Gypsy, Eliot made a foray into verse, creating a work whose initial popularity has not endured.

This is the best collection of George Eliot's I have ever seen on either the Nook or the Kindle stores (I have both devices!). This comes with an interactive table of contents and full color illustrations which works very well on my Nook color. Navigation is very intuitive and there are direct links to every novel and chapter that Eliot ever wrote. I give this 5 stars and wish I could give it even more.

George Eliot is my favorite writer, and Middlemarch is my favorite book. Some of her other novels are hard to find, and I am glad I could get them in one single volume.

At the age of 51, with all my children out of the house, I'm happily reading more. I began "The Complete Novels of George Eliot" by familiarizing myself with her biography (also contained in the Complete Novels). This was helpful in understanding how insightful she was in developing the characters and storylines. I read "Adam Bede" on my Nook. The "look it up" feature for word definitions added richness to the experience. On a side note regarding "Adam Bede". The motivations of individuals, the ripple effect of their actions, the inner conflicts and impulsiveness of the human spirit are timeless.
