About Book

Book Description
A brilliant story of George Eliot originally written for the Eminent Women series. This title is cited and recommended by the Cambridge Bibliography of English. A great part of the correspondence in the present volume has not hitherto appeared in print. Originally published in 1883.

"Detailed accounts of George Eliot's life have hitherto been singularly scanty. In the death of published materials a considerable portion of the information contained in this biographical study has, necessarily, been derived from private sources. In visiting the places connected with George Eliot's early life, I enjoyed the privilege of meeting her brother, Mr. Isaac Evans, and was also fortunate in gleaning many a characteristic fact and trait from old people in the neighborhood, contemporaries of her father, Mr. Robert Evans. For valuable help in forming an idea of the growth of George Eliot's mind, my warm thanks are especially due to her oldest friends, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Bray, and Miss Hennell of Coventry. Miss Jenkins, the novelist's schoolfellow, and Mrs. John Cash, also generously afforded me every assistance in their power."
