Review:

Nancy Henry s new biography of George Eliot is truly a new biography of George Eliot. Henry writes with all thirty–seven of her predecessors in mind as she carefully selects the material that needs repeating, discarding, or modifying. Her massive bibliography results from her thorough research, something difficult to achieve with a figure like George Eliot about whom so much is written, but for which she has gained a reputation as a most conscientious I would say the most conscientious––of George Eliot scholars. Kathleen McCormack, Florida International University

From the Back Cover:

The life of the Victorian novelist George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans) is as dramatic as the plot of a novel: a brilliant but unattractive country girl moves to London, elopes with a married man and is ostracized by society until she begins writing novels under a male pseudonym and goes on to accumulate great wealth and fame.

George Eliot s dedication to realism renders the relationship between her life and her novels especially intriguing. Incorporating the very latest research in the field of George Eliot studies, this biography re–examines the story of her life, cross–referencing its fascinating narrative with analysis of her fiction and poetry. In doing so, the author reveals how Eliot s life provides insight into her art as well as how her art can enhance our understanding of her life. Informed by cutting–edge academic research, and including critical interpretations of her work from multiple theoretical perspectives, this new Life of George Eliot is a critical biography for the twenty–first century.
