George Eliot

by Jenny Uglow

George Eliot Synopsis

One of the most brilliant writers of her day, George Eliot (1819-1880) was also one of the most talked about. Intellectual and independent, she had the strength to defy polite society with her highly unorthodox private life, so why did she deny her fictional characters the same opportunities?

George Eliot Press Reviews

'A fascinating study of Eliot's writing and life that should send you scuttling back to re-read her novels' Annabel Edwards, THE TIMES 'Anyone who wants to rind out about the real George Eliot could not do better than to read Jennifer Uglow ... Generous, exacting and illuminating' A.S. BYATT
