Happy Belated Birthday to George Eliot!

November 19th was George Eliot’s Birthday. In honour of this, the British Library has posted a link to their page on Eliot’s brilliant novel Middlemarch (1871-1872). The site includes an audio clip of someone reading from the novel and an image from the Middlemarch Manuscript that they have in their holdings. What a lovely way to start a Thursday. Enjoy!
