Mary Ann Evans was born November 22, 1819, in Warwickhire, England, to Robert Evans, a sales agent, or manager, and Christiana Pearson. She lived in a comfortable home, the youngest of three children. At the age of five, he and his sister were sent to a school in Attleborough, Warwickshire, and at the age of nine were transferred to a boarding school in Nuneaton. It was during these years that Mary discovered a love for reading. At the age of thirteen, Mary went to school in Coventry. Her teaching upheld the law (in its tradition), which was governed by Christian teachings. Mary Ann finished school when she was sixteen. In her twenties she encountered a circle of people whose ideas did not fit with the views of many people and made radical changes to her beliefs. Influenced by the so-called Higher Order - a very German school that studied the Bible and tried to treat sacred texts as human and historical texts - she devoted herself to translating these works from the German language into the English language for the English public. She published his translations of David Strauss's Life of Jesus in 1846 and his Essence of Christian translation of Ludwig Andreas Feuerbach in 1854. In 1851 Evans became the editor of the Westminster Review, a sensible and open-source journal. Here, she met a group known as lawyers. They were followers of the French philosopher (seeker) Auguste Comte (1798-1857), who had a desire to apply scientific knowledge to social problems. One of these individuals was George Henry Lewes (1817-1878), a philosopher, psychologist (psychologist), and literary critic, who forged a lasting relationship with him. When she was separated from her husband but could not get a divorce, their relationship was a mess in those times. Nevertheless, the obvious commitment and length of their union was appreciated.
