Frederick Karl (au). Eliot, the author of Middlemarch, Adam Bede, Silas Marner, Felix Holt, The Mill on the Floss, & Daniel Deronda, was the greatest literary heroine of the 19th cent. This biography draws upon previously unpub. letters, from Eliot herself & from her circle, to create a significantly revised portrait of her -- both as a woman & as an artist. She reveled in contradiction, paradox & irony, & behind the famous public face was her secret self. She played out her fears, & then shadowed them throughout her fiction, transforming herself from a country girl into a figure who made all knowledge her domain. Eliotís fiction reflected the turmoil that lay just beneath the placid surface of the Victorian era. Photos.
