Free eBook George EliotAuthor Gordon S. Haight –

Good, matter of fact account of Eliot s life and history of producing the novels Not particularly entertaining or readable, but good if you re a serious fan looking to understand some of the context of the novels. This is a fascinating biography, though I would recommend it only if you are familiar with Eliot s work It has made me determined to revisit her novels She was a very unique person and her writing is exquisite. I was longer reading this book than is usual for me, because I didn t read it continuously Although the book well deserves its reputation as the source for all later George Eliot scholars, it s a difficult read It s long 550 pages , and Haight s prose is less than lively Also, as other reviewers have noted, Haight s generous use of lengthy extracted quotes gets tedious Nevertheless, there is no question about Haight s expertise on George Eliot And his respect and regard for Eliot s character and extraordinary uniqueness of nature and spirit, as well as for her literary greatness, make this biography moving and powerful, and a must read for all George Eliot fans Caveat, though familiarity with George Eliot s novels is a prerequisite if you want to get anything of value from the book. A difficult book to get into, but once you do, it is very rewarding Like other reviewers have said, you really need to have read her books, and the constant use of letters gets a bit wearing This is the second biography of one of my favourite authors, Middlemarch being my favourite book of all time, and she really was a giant, not just as a writer, but as a brilliant mind A person who it would have been awe inspiring to know George Eliot Auteur De Middlemarch Babelio George Eliot, De Son Vrai Nom Mary Anne Evans, Est Une Romancire Britannique Elle Passe Son Enfance Dans Une Ferme Du Warwickshire O Son Pre Travaille Comme Rgisseur Elle Reoit Une Ducation Religieuse Et Conformiste Fervente Lectrice De Bunyan, Defoe Et Scott, Elle Apprend Aussi L Allemand Et L Italien Elle Quitte L ColeGeorge Eliot Tous Les Produits Fnac George Eliot, De Son Vrai Nom Mary Ann Evans, Est L Une Des Figures Dominantes De La Littrature Anglaise Du XIXE Sicle Politiquement Radicale, Passionne De Problmes Philosophiques Et Sociaux, Vivant En Union Libre Avec Un Homme Mari, George Lire La SuiteGeorge Eliot Livres, Biographie, CritsSuivez George Eliot Et Explorez Sa Bibliographie Sur Sa Page D Auteur George Eliot SurCitations De George EliotBabeliocitations De George Eliot Il N Est Jamais Trop Tard Pour Devenir Ce Que L On Aurait Pu Tre Toutes Les Citations De George Eliot EvenelefigaroGeorge Eliot British Author Britannica George Eliot, English Victorian Novelist Who Developed The Method Of Psychological Analysis Characteristic Of Modern Fiction Her Major Works Include Adam Bede, The Mill On The Floss, Silas Marner, Middlemarch , And A La Dcouverte De George Eliot Je Savais Pour Ma Part Que George Eliot Tait Une Femme Mais Son Uvre Me Demeurait Inconnue Et Je Dois Mona Ozouf D Avoir Lu Coup Sur Coup Les Deux Volumes De Daniel Deronda Et Middelmarch Et Le Magnifique Essai De Mona Ozouf Je Voudrais Communiquer Cet Blouissement Et Commenons Par Sortir L Auteur Elle Mme De La Trappe O Elle Est Tombe George Eliot WikipediaGeorge Eliot, Radical But Conservative Spectator USA This Article Is In The Spectator S JanuaryUS Edition Subscribe Here It S Easy To Forget, As We Celebrate The Th Anniversary Of Her Birth, How Radical George Eliot Actually Was A solid biography of Eliot while not the most enthralling account, it nevertheless avoids many of the pitfalls of other biographies, such as over narrativization Contains many long excerpts from letters, which are helpful for the enthusiast.
