The Last Victorian
An accessible, illustrated study of the great Victorian novelist details the personal dramas that shaped her work, including her adulterous affair with writer George Henry Lewes, and relates her life to the issues of her day.
A peripatetic scholar of 19th-century English literature and history, Hughes focuses more fully on Eliot's (1819-80) private life than other recent biographers. She details the scandal that cast her into social exile until her literary successes established her at the heart of the London literary elite. She finds her to have been by turns ambitious and insecure, cerebral and earthy, provocative and conservative. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Explores the personal life and literary achievements of the nineteenth-century English writer
