George Eliot Country
Helen Mark visits Nuneaton to follow in the footsteps of Victorian novelist George Eliot as the local community prepare to celebrate the bicentenary of her birth.
‘She was a woman ahead of her time, she pushed every boundary.’ For this week’s Open County, Helen Mark heads to the Warwickshire landscape of Nuneaton where she walks in the footsteps of one of Britain’s greatest authors and through the locals who are celebrating her legacy today, Helen comes face to face with the woman herself – 200 years after her birth.
Mary Anne Evans (22 November 1819 – 22 December 1880) is best known by her pen name George Eliot. An English novelist, poet, journalist, translator, and one of the leading writers of the Victorian era, her novels reflected the landscape and the lives of those she lived amongst. 200 years on from her birth we meet the community that continue to celebrate her life today and the shifting landscape that still holds traces of Mary Anne’s rural beginnings.
Presented by Helen Mark Readings by Eleanor Charman from Sudden Impulse Theatre Produced by Nicola Humphries

Article paru dans le Guardian : “The black Victorians: astonishing portraits unseen for 120 years”
From the African Choir posing like Vogue models to an Abyssinian prince adopted by an explorer, a new exhibition spotlights the first black people ever photographed in Britain.

“This year the Museum of London welcomes an exciting new exhibition, delving into the mind of the world’s most famous fictional detective; Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes.”

If you are interested in global adaptations of Dickens, this is an interesting French adaptation of Dombey and son dated 2004 (dir. Laurent Jaoui, France Télévisions). Note the gallic spelling “Dombais et fils”. A delicious French and even Balzacian touch, and very good understanding of the novel’s plot(s), adapted to a 19th century rural context, beautifully interpreted by the (famous) French cast. I discovered this while working on my thesis “Charles Dickens et la BBC au XIXème siècle: Réinventions, réécritures, nouveaux publics” at Paris Diderot.
At the British Library – Oct 14th 2014 – Sara Thornton :
Working today at the British Library I am amazed at all the Victorian related activity on view. See the site http://www.bl.uk/# with the images of Dickens, a Victorian advert for Fry’s Cocoa and the ‘Terror and Wonder Gothic‘ exhibition and the extraordinary searchable catalogues of texts and objects called ‘Victorian Ephemera‘ in the Evanion Catalogue.
