George Eliot and me


I'm on this George Eliot binge these days. Finished reading The Mill on the Floss, reading Romola, watched Middlemarch, and watching Daniel Deronda. While doing this study, I realize that not many people know or care to know George or Marianne or Mary Ann Evans. But, after this study, I realize that I like her and her work very much. Her characters have depth and confuse me, but that is what I like I guess. Real women and men.

Hi, I found your blog through Jill.

I just finished Middlemarch--a bit of a marathon to read but breathtaking. Eliot departs from the "show don't tell" rule of writing quite a bit, but is so brilliant in her observation of human behavior and psychology, that I didn't mind at all.

love, love, love her!!! She, indeed, is complex! Love Silas Marner! Would love to hear more of your insights, as well! :)
