George Eliot was one of the major figures in the literary world of 19th century. You may know this or not, this George wasn’t actually a ‘He’ but a Rebellious ‘She’. Her acual name was Mary Ann Evans. ‘George Eliot’ was just the pen name which she used to break the stereotype against women writing only light-hearted fiction and also to protect her private life.
Her major works include Adam Bede (1859), The Mill on the Floss (1860), Silas Marner (1861), Middlemarch (1871–72), and Daniel Deronda (1876).
