Gillian Beer, according to Wikipedia:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gillian_Beer
"Born Gillian Patricia Kempster Thomas, Beer studied English Literature at St Anne's College, Oxford. She was a fellow of Girton College, Cambridge, for 30 years. She was later King Edward VII Professor of English Literature at Cambridge, and later President of Clare Hall. She served as chair of the judges for the Booker Prize in 1997. She was made a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1998.
"Beer's most innovative and important literary criticism lies in the field of Victorian studies. In particular, Darwin's Plots (1983), related the form of Victorian novels to Darwinist thinking. Its significance as a work was confirmed by the publication of second edition by Cambridge University Press in 2000".
