  • Abstract Most people consider George Eliot a great Victorian novelist but neglect her role as a poetess. In fact, it is essential to read her poetry as well in order to grasp her thoughts. Her poems come mostly from her personal feelings, her observation of society, and her love of nature. This present thesis is a study of her poems and poetics, her poetic creativity, and her achievement in writing poetry. In the thesis, the introductory chapter has an overall look on George Eliot’s poetic career. Chapter One examines her creative progress of composing poetry and her poetics. Chapter Two discusses her poetic experiment on dramatic poems in her times. The final chapter probes into the poetic mottoes applied to her last three novels. Most important of all, this thesis discovers George Eliot’s identification as a poetess because she is conscious of what poetry offers and stimulates. This thesis, therefore, intends to show a new dimension of George Eliot as a poetess.
