George Eliot was an English writer who lived in the period 1819 – 1880. She is best known as a novelist and poet, and her works often depict the Victorian era and the rural society. George Eliot wanted to describe the life of ordinary people. She was fascinated by the simplicity of country life and wanted to represent it realistically. Some of her works were also politically orientated as she wanted to draw attention to the social outsiders and people from small towns. "Adam Bede", "The Mill on the Floss" and "Felix Holt, the Radical" are only a small part of the huge literary legacy she left behind.
