George Eliot: A monologue By Lesley Smith
Mary Ann Evans was a woman ahead of her time; highly intelligent and a freethinker, she wrote 8 novels under her pen name, George Eliot, including her most famous, “Middlemarch”. Her private life was considered scandalous, living with a married man for 24 years and being shunned by her family and society as a result.
