Performers, Cast and Crew:
A glimpse into the life of Marian Evans, whose pen name was "George Eliot," author of such classics as "Silas Marner" and "Middlemarch."
"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.
