George Eliot tales of country life formed the collection Scenes from Clerical Life (1858), which made her one of the most important English writers of her time. However, because of discrimination against women writers, she wrote under the pseudonym “George Eliot”.

Adam Bede (1859), her fist novel, brilliantly displayed her talent for evoking background and atmosphere, and won her an even wider audience. In 1860, she published the auto biographical Mill on the Floss, a revealing analysis of a child’s emotions and reactions. It was followed by Silas Marner (1861), a story of a country miser. In 1861 she visited Italy in search of a theme for a historical novel.
