Literature: George Eliot with Dr Mark Crees View details

Her first name was Mary Ann Evans. She was born in Nuneaton, in Warwickshire, on 22 November 1819. She taught herself to translate German and Latin philosophy. Having questioned the authenticity of Christian beliefs, she became an assistant editor to a freethinking magazine in London. From there, at the age of 37, she began her first novella. The rest is history, or rather, it is not history at all. Her work is now a vital part of our unfolding present. Few writers have had such a dynamic and humane influence upon much that is worth reading today. The special emphasis Eliot places upon our need to listen closely to our feelings, and to unravel the complexities inherent within the everyday, has ensured that Eliot will always find her readers among those for whom life matters. This course is for anyone who admires Eliot, or who simply wishes to read her for the very first time. And why on earth not?
