George Eliot: A Biography - Frederick R. Karl Phew, this tome gets rather bogged down in the minutae of MS Eliot's life. Quite interesting reading, but I might not have the time/courage to finish it completely.

I didn't read every page of this work, and I don't plan to either. I'll rate it a 3, nevertheless. I found it too long-winding and focused on minatue to be really useful for my purposes. It's more useful to those who are really really very interested in every single small detail of Eliot's personal life. I was looking for something a bit more focused on her scholarly influences, and while this is indeed interwoven into the text, I found it quite a job to try and condense what I needed from all the other domestic and social details.

Let's put this on my "skimmed" list. :)
