DECRIPTION: When Marian Evans began her love affair with a married man, George Henry Lewes, she forfeited her right to return to her native Midlands. Exiled for 23 years she began to recreate in her imagination this ever present past, it became the nucleus of her fiction. This book explores those complex inter-relationships between past and present and the loving and ironic detail with which George Eliot evokes a whole world, not just consisting of people and places, but of politics, religion, education - the whole fabric of society.
