Women Who Should Be Pretty Pissed Off: George Eliot: A Pissed Paradox. https://www.mcsweeneys.net/articles/george-eliot-a-pissed-par...
"As for Eliot’s personal life, I think she and Lewes had a very healthy relationship and I will leave it at that. And in terms of her looks, people over the years have often commented on her less-than-ideal beauty. Henry James went on and on about it, though you should look up pictures of him and tell me if you think he’s anything to write home about. But I don’t think Eliot would be pissed if people think she’s ugly. I don’t think she’d care at all. I hope not." ‎- JustDuckie
