"Famous Authors" examines the men and women behind the words that brought them literary kudos.
In "George Eliot," viewers learn how the daughter of a strict Protestant father cut her family ties and became one of Victorian England's most illustrious novelists. Eliot -- originally named Mary Ann Evans -- went on to pen such works as "Silas Marner" and "Middlemarch."
Privately, Eliot participated and remained in an unusual romantic triad: she lived with a married man, George Henry Lewes, who was unable to divorce his legal wife. Friends ultimately considered Eliot and Lewes to be wedded.
