Product Details:

"Shielded by her pseudonym George Eliot, the shy and ambitious new author Mary Ann Evans made her fictional debut when Scenes of Clerical Life appeared in Blackwood's Magazine in 1857. These stories contain Eliot's earliest studies of what became enduring themes in her great novels: the impact of religious controversy and social change in provincial life, and the power of love to transform the lives of individual men and women. Adam Bede was soon to appear and bring George Eliot fame and fortune. In the meantime the Scenes won acclaim from a discerning readership including Charles Dickens: 'I hope you will excuse my writing to you to express my admiration... The exquisite truth and delicacy, both of the humour and the pathos of those stories, I have never seen the like of.'

About the Author

Mary Ann Evans (1819-80) began her literary career as a translator and later editor of the Westminster Review. In 1857, she published SCENES OF CLERICAL LIFE, the first of eight novels she would publish under the name of 'George Eliot', including THE MILL ON THE FLOSS, MIDDLEMARCH, and DANIEL DERONDA."
