Summary

‘This richly enjoyable biography of the great Victorian novelist reminds us how truly revolutionary was George Eliot… [Ashton] provides luminously sane readings of the marvellous novels.’ A.N. Wilson, Evening Standard

‘Excellent… Ashton cites Eliot’s achievement in a literary landscape which moves from Scott and George Sand to Dickens, Tennyson and Browning… a fluent, vivid book… it makes one thrill again to the breadth of Eliot’s genius and the passionate, vulnerable nature that accompanied her wide-ranging mind.’ Jenny Uglow, Independent on Sunday

‘An extremely impressive work… the George Eliot who emerges from Professor Ashton’s book is a remarkable woman of exceptional integrity whose life expresses the spirit of the Victorian age, even as it goes against the very grain of it.’ Susie Boyt, Sunday Express
