Marianne Evans (1819-1880): major mundane novelist of England, not directly related to Romance, except in that she raised the bar of quality of didactic, social, moral, and detailed characterization novels of closely-observed people clawing their way towards maturity, and thus indirectly strengthened the claim that Romance is not "real literature" because it falls short in exactly these ways. Her brilliant fiction, which she started writing only when she was middle-aged, include: * Leben Jesu ("Life of Jesus") [1846] translation, under her real name, of nonfiction (German) by D. F. Strauss * Scenes of Clerical Life [1857] collects 3 short stories published earlier that year in Blackwood's * Adam Bede [1858] * The Mill on the Floss [1860] * Silas Marner [1860] * Romola [1863] extensively researched historical novel of Renaissance which is a must-read for Fantasists treating the Renaissance * Felix Holt * The Radical * Middlemarch (arguably the greatest of all mainstream novels) * Daniel Deronda Elise: (1) Unlawful Queen of Tyre in "Astrate, Roi de Tyr", tragic drama by Quinault; (2) "L'Avare", comic play by Moliere, in which Elise is the miser's daughter Elissa: see: Dido; The Faerie Queen Eliza: character in "Uncle Tom's Cabin" by Harriet Beecher Stowe, and thus one of the fictional characters who most influenced the "real world" by inspiring anti-slavery sentiment before the American Civil War. Elizabethan: the 45-year era (1558-1603) of the reign of Elizabeth I, a major literary renaissance in England, triggered by the elevation of the English language to acceptability for "serious" literature, the execution of Mary Queen of Scots [1857], the publication by the great Fantasy poet Edmund Spenser of "The Shepheardes Calendar [1579], and including such monumental works as: * Aeneid, first full English translation of Vergil's masterpiece * A Mirror for Magistrates * Dr.Faustus, Fantasy play by Christopher Marlowe (see: Faust) * Tamburlaine, play by Christopher Marlowe * The Jew of Malta, play by Christopher Marlowe * Laws of Ecclesiastical Polity, Richard Hooker * various pamphlets, Robert Greene * various pamphlets, Thomas Nashe * various pamphlets, by the pseudonymous Martin Marprelate * The Essays of Montaigne, translation by John Florio * The Faerie Queen, Edmund Spenser (see: he Faerie Queen) * Astrophel and Stella, Sir Phillip Sydney * The Sonnets, Shakespeare * Amoretti, Edmund Spenser * Delia, Samuel Daniel * Idea, Michael Drayton * The Arraignment of Paris, romance/light Fantasy play by George Peel * Endymion, romance/light Fantasy play by John Lyly * The Spanish Tragedy, play by Thomas Kyd * most of the plays of William Shakespeare By 1600, just before the death of "the Virgin Queen", the literature of the Elizabethan era had peaked, was declining into self-parody, and was soon displaced by a counter-Renaissance known as the Jacobean era. Janice Elliott (1931-1995) British novelist: * The Summer People [1980] vacationers stranded as polar icecaps melt * Magic [1983] out-of-body experiences with the Virgin Mary * Dr. Gruber's Daughter [1986] * The Sadness of Witches [1987] * City of Gates [1992] * the "Sword and the Dream" Young Adult Arthurian series: * The King Awakes [1987] * The Empty Throne [1988] * The Birthday Unicorn [1970] juvenile * The Country of Her Dreams [1982] cold war (according to "The Encyclopedia of Fantasy", John Clute & John Grant, St.Martin's, 1997, p.315) Elves: the plural of Elf {to be done} Elvira: {to be done} Return to Romance Authors E Table of Contents

His madness kept his output small, but his works such as "Venus and the Madonna" and "The Epigony" show the delicately sensitive and pessimistic view of the nature of humanity. As a Romantic poet, he played with fantasy themes including aspects of the legends and philosophies of India. The beauty of his language influenced many later prose and poetry works of Fantasy and Science Fiction. Carol Emshwiller, wife of Ed Emsh, herself an SF short story author: Nothing on the web?
