George Eliot Collection Volume 5

Mary Anne Evans (22 November 1819 22 December 1880; alternatively "Mary Ann" or "Marian"), known by her pen name George Eliot, was an English novelist, journalist, translator and one of the leading writers of the Victorian era. She is the author of seven novels, including Adam Bede (1859), The Mill on the Floss (1860), Silas Marner (1861), Middlemarch (187172), and Daniel Deronda (1876), most of them set in provincial England and known for their realism and psychological insight.She used a male pen name, she said, to ensure her works would be 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. An additional factor in her use of a pen name may have been a desire to shield her private life from public scrutiny and to prevent scandals attending her relationship with the married George Henry Lewes, with whom she lived for over 20 years.Her 1872 work Middlemarch has been described by Martin Amis and Julian Barnes as the greatest novel in the English language.This George Eliot Collection Volume 5 consists of:1.Mr Gilfil's Love-Story2.Janet's Repentance3.The Sad Fortunes of the Reverend Amos Barton4.The Natural History of German Life5.Silly Novels by Lady Novelists
