Selected WorksBook - 1995
George Eliot (1819-1880) was a major English novelist whose classic works of fiction are known for their dedication to realism, depictions of rural society, characterization and psychological insight. Born Mary Anne Evans, George Eliot adopted her pen name because she enjoyed working anonymously and wished to protect her privacy. She is today one of the most popular Victorian novelists, and her work enjoyed extraordinary popularity during her lifetime. This book, the first volume of a two volume set of her selected works, includes 'Adam Bede', 'The Mill on the Floss' and 'Silas Marner', and is an essential edition for collectors, students and general lovers of George Eliot and Victorian literature.
