One of the great novelists of the world was named Mary Ann Evans. But when she began to write fiction she signed her work "George Eliot", and that became the name by which she became famous. Mary Ann was born in Warwickshire, England. For the first 21 years of her life she lived on a large estate which her father managed. Here she learned about country people and how they lived. After her mother died, her father moved to the town of Coventry, and here Mary Ann made friends with many literary men and women. She got new ideas and a freedom of thought. George Eliot's first published work was a translation of a Life of Jesus from the German. Then she became assistant editor of a magazine and began to become friends with many of the prominent literary people of the day. She had a good brain and was always interested in new ideas. The first of many novels she wrote was "Adam Bede". Another novel, "The Mill on the Floss", gives a fine picture of English country society of the middle class. The novel "Romola" is an historical novel of 15th century Italy. Probably her best known work, and one that almost everybody has to read in school, is "Silas Marner". It is the story of a man who loses his gofld and finds a little girl. George Eliot's work has a strong moral sense, and it shows a belief in the power of a person's character to control his fate.
