George Eliot: A Scandalous Life

 

Think George Eliot was a prude? Think again! She lived with her married lover for years. She married a 40-year-old man at the age of 60. She walked away from her Evangelical upbringing. She travelled to the Weimar Republic and studied with scholars when women were not allowed to pursue a public education. This is a fantastic and fun documentary. Enjoy your weekend with a bodice-busting account of George Eliot’s scandalous life!

This links to part one of a 6 part youtube downloand. Not my download so if you own the documentary  – sorry but it’s so much fun to watch.
