Author Bio for Evans, Mary Anne
Mary Anne Evans (1819-1880) was an English novelist. Born in Derbyshire she became her father's housekeeper. After he died, she acquired a small annuity which allowed her to live in London. She took up with George Henry Lewes, a married man who could not get a divorce and she lived 'common-law' with him which painfully estranged her from her family who took a dim view of this arrangement. Lewes had a large influence on her and encouraged her to write fiction. "Scenes of Clerical Life" was her first work, published in 1858 which appeared under her penname 'George Eliot'. Her next book, "Adam Bede" tackled the problem of seduction and the sexual double standard which existed in Victorian England. Evans was known for the psychological seriousness of her characters and her study of the complex relationship of people and society. The philosophical foundation of her fiction made her one of the major Victorian novelists. (Oxford Guide to British Women Writers)
