I always find myself admiring the handwriting of 19th century authors (or people in general). And I've actually seen that house, although not on purpose. Hooray for those blue plaques.

I think this is such a great idea for all of us to learn more about the classic authors! I have... I am reading Persuasion. Come learn something about Ms. Austen!

I'm reading George Eliot this month too! I loved seeing her house and handwriting. She's such an interesting person and I love her narrative voice--so wise, maternal, and compassionate, which I think I can see in her face.

I forgot to add a link to my post on Silas Marner.

I'm adoring Middlemarch so far. George Eliot is awesome. Her handwriting looks so neat and orderly...

Shelley said...

George Eliot is my favorite author (I named my nook Eliot after her) but I only know a few things about her life. I love seeing her handwriting!

I have read Silas Marner a few times and am in the middle of The Mill on the Floss. It's luxurious to read George Eliot slowly.

Several months ago we had a cloth maker with a loom at our local library. She told me how important the weaver was to a community because most people did not own looms. So Silas must have been really good at weaving.

I have never read any George Elliot. Something I plan on rectifying soon.
