1361 George Eliot: A Biography, by Gordon S. Haight (read 15 Oct 1975) The author is (or was in 1975, at least) a Yale professor, and this is an excellent biography, which I enjoyed uninterruptedly. It lacks nothing as a biography, and I cannot see how a better one of George Eliot could be written. Marian Evans was born Nov 22, 1819. She took up living with George Henry Lewis in 1854, and lived with him till he died Nov. 30, 1878. On May 6, 1880, she married John Walter Cross. They took off for the Continent and on July 8,1880, he jumped into the Grand Canal in Venice in a fit of mental depression, and they came home. She died 22 Dec 1880. Though there is much in her life I disapprove of, she was an interesting and important person--and this book was a joy to read. ( )
