George Eliot was a pen name for Mary Anne Evans. She was the daughter of a man of strong Evangelical Protestant feeling, and in her early twenties severed herself from her father's religion and became acquainted with a new theology in Germany. There she translated D.F. Strauss' Leben Jew (Life of Jesus, 1846). She lived with George Henry Lewes who could not obtain a divorce from his wife, and entered into an irregular union with him that was recognized among friends as a marriage. Her work, which is considered wholly Victorian in moral and social attitude, includes Silas Marner, Romola, and Middlemarch. This program explores her life and major works.
