George Eliot in Love PDF/EPUB ´ George Eliot PDF or

George Eliot is one of the most celebrated novelists in history Her books including Middlemarch Daniel Deronda and Adam Bede are as appreciated now as they were in the nineteenth century Yet her nonconformist and captivating personal life—a compelling story in itself—is not well known Ridiculed as an ugly duckling Eliot violated strict social codes by living with a married man for most of her adult life Soon after he died she married a much younger man who attempted suicide during their honeymoon The obstacles Eliot overcame in her life informed her work and have made her legacy an enduring one Brenda Maddox brings her lively style to bear on the intersection of Eliot's life and novels She delves into the human side of this larger than life figure revealing the pleasure and pain behind the intellectual's public face The result is a deeply personal biography that sheds new light on a woman who lived life on her own terms and altered the literary landscape in the process

    A full length review is coming since I received this via BookPleasurescom but a few words until then this book is sympathetic well researched and paints a clear picture of the woman who brought us great some would say THE greatest Victorian novels She was so insecure that without being encouraged by the love of her life George Lewes there might have been no Middlemarch arguably one of the greatest novels of that century She was poor in health but rich in love by middle age anyway and book royalties Drum roll please Here is the official BookPleasures reviewIn this sympathetic biography of the celebrated 19th century novelist George Eliot Mary Anne Evans Brenda Maddox clearly presents the author and the creation of her books some of English literature’s most unforgettableBeginning with her childhood – her rejection by her mother and acceptance by her father – Maddox shows how Evans adopted a fervent Evangelicalism as a young only to lose it when befriended by some freethinking some of them rather promiscuous individuals Promiscuity among 19th century atheistic intellectuals was evidently a reaction to the strict social and religious norms of the day but this opportunity for sexual freedom doesn’t seem to have affected the unattractive Evans in any way but to increase her insecurity she was yearning for loveShe finally found it when she took up a permanent live in relationship with George Lewes who was technically married to a woman who was in turn living with another man Lewes provided Evans with emotional security and a profound friendship that became a guiding light for her writing career Lewes suggested that Evans – a talented and successful journalist begin to write fictionLewes as Maddox shows was not only was the creative impetus for the great Victorian novelist but he also served as her emotional support and protector For instance Evans was terrified of reading any reviews of her own work and so Lewes constantly prevented her from seeing any Even after becoming a wild success gaining a measure of social acceptance in Victorian England Evans and Lewes never officially married and gaining reams of adoring fans Evans still had difficulty believing in herself as a writer and couldn’t begin – or finish – a new book without suffering from severe depression With Lewes at her side however she was able to ultimately persevereEspecially riveting for George Eliot fans are the sections of Maddox’s biography which describe the creation of the novels where Evans found the inspiration for each story’s kernel where she lived when she wrote each one and what she – and others had to say about them as they came into being many of them via serializationUtilizing reams of personal letters which bring immediacy to the narrative Maddox paints an unforgettable portrait of a complex woman equal parts talent and insecurity – who because she was so lucky in love was able to write some of the greatest novels in the English language
