George Henry Lewes
FameRank: 5

"George Henry Lewes" was an English philosopher and critic of literature and theatre. He became part of the mid-Victorian era/Victorian ferment of ideas which encouraged discussion of Darwinism, positivism, and religious scepticism. However, he is perhaps best known today for having openly lived with George Eliot, as soulmates whose life and writings were enriched by their friendship, despite never marrying.
