What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding
First edition. Eliot's last published writing and arguably the most experimental. A series of literary essays by an imaginary minor scholar whose eccentric character is revealed through his work. In a series of eighteen sometimes satirical character studies, Theophrastus Such focuses on various types of people he has observed in society. Written by Mary Ann Evans, known by her pen name of George Eliot, an English novelist, poet, journalist, translator, and one of the leading writers of the Victorian era. W. H.
