The Mill on the Floss, Paperback

The Mill on the Floss Paperback

Part of the Wordsworth Classics series


Introduction and Notes by R.T. Jones, Honorary Fellow of the University of York. This novel, based on George Eliot's own experiences of provincial life, is a masterpiece of ambiguity in which moral choice is subjected to the hypocrisy of the Victorian age.

As the headstrong Maggie Tulliver grows into womanhood, the deep love which she has for her brother Tom turns into conflict, because she cannot reconcile his bourgeois standards with her own lively intelligence.

Maggie is unable to adapt to her community or break free from it, and the result, on more than one level, is tragedy.
