George Eliot

Quotes By:
George Eliot
“Falsehood is easy, truth so difficult.”

This book is a collection of the quotes and aphorisms of George Eliot. It grants her reflections on subjects ranging from love, women and men, art and life. The well researched and edited compilation of phrases provides approaching into the way of thinking of George Eliot.

Mary Anne Evans, known by her pen name George Eliot, was an English novelist, journalist, and translator and one of the leading writers of the Victorian era. She is the author of seven novels, including Adam Bede (1859), The Mill on the Floss (1860), Silas Marner (1861), Middlemarch (1871–72), and Daniel Deronda (1876), most of them set in provincial England and known for their realism and psychological insight. She used a male pen name, she said, to ensure her works would be taken seriously. Female authors were published under their own names during Eliot's life, but she wanted to escape the stereotype of women only writing lighthearted romances. An additional factor in her use of a pen name may have been a desire to shield her private life from public scrutiny and to prevent scandals attending her relationship with the married George Henry Lewes, with whom she lived for over 20 years.
