Position Eliot in society is quite a curious. On the one hand, it has violated the norms of morality, sharing the bed with a man who was not her husband, and even when his wife live. On the other hand, Elliot credibility as a writer was so undeniable is in matters of morality, that in England it looked as mentor, teacher of life, Sybil. Queen Victoria herself, famous for strict moral principles, was a fervent admirer of Eliot and recommended novels writer his granddaughters. In 1878, Lewis died. It would seem, Eliot, losing such a faithful friend, was to fall into despair, however, a few months after the death of her husband, she, despite his advanced age, she married a second time. Again, her marriage has shaken the public of the British capital. This time it was the chosen one unmarried, free, but thirty years of John Walter Cross.
