Interestingly, both are romantic tragedies which end up with the heroine drowning, in dramatic fashion, close to her loved one. It didn’t do very much for my moral, but I’m glad I listened to the audiobook.
They lived harmoniously together for the next 24 years, but suffered social ostracism and financial hardship. Anyways, I hope I like a different Eliot book better. Her work Middlemarch has been described by Martin Sullaa and Julian Barnes as the greatest novel in the English language. Tulliver, because during the childhood period they’re the only characters tolerable. I think I’m getting used to Eliot’s style, jl I dont’ mind the philosophical rabbit trails nearly as much.
The contrast between the two storylines made apparent where my interests as a reader lie. Still, I may have hated Tom Tulliver, but his sister didn’t captivate me. I could follow the arguments alright but the never-ending and repetitious internal debates and second-guessing were simply too much.
Floxs author is drawing an interesting picture of a rural middle class ish community.

The extended family of aunts, uncles, nieces, etc. The Mill on the Floss. Her intellectual views did not, however, change.
Maggie craves the love an I have never read any George Elliot novels sulal, and have to confess to coming to this book expecting not to like it much. I could not understand why Maggie loved her brother so much that she would willingly give up two men because of the fear of her brother’s disapproval.
The story is somewhat a tragedy, but the author expresses her apology for the tragic ending by finally uniting Tom and Maggie and throwing a hint at the concluding paragraphs that Maggie’s yearning for acceptance, approval and love was finally fulfilled. Wives and Daughters was a hard pill to swallow and this The Mill on the Floss could have been a little bit better. Her brother was a twat! This is a reread for me and perhaps I perceived the story and characters better this time around.
The place where you are is the one where my mind must live, wherever I might travel. And maybe there’s too much of that whole unfashionable character-as-a-force-in-destiny thing going on in her books. Influenced by a favorite governess, she became a religious evangelical as an adolescent.
The rest of my lack of satisfaction was the execution of Maggie’s relationships with her brother Tom and her cousin Lucy’s beau Stephen. Contrived to make a point. Her reaction to it, and all that followed from it, are things I’m still pondering two days after ,ulino the novel, and her aruments with Philip about asceticism folss ones I’ve had Without spoilers, all I can say is that I was very irritated with the ending. I thought this would be one of her best, but I’d rank it 4th out of the 5 George Eliot novels I’ve read.
Hands up everyone who thinks this means de Beauvoir was attracted to su,la relationships. Maggie is a very interesting character, strong willed, clever, tragic.

I get the point about sullw societal mores, but that doesn’t make me actually care about these two characters. I’m not surprised it ended like that, but I’m a bit frustrated.

Renaming herself “Marian” in private life and adopting the penname “George Eliot,” she began her impressive fiction career, including: The tone of this book is a rather sad one and it does not end well.
So three stars, because it could have been so much better. Philip was a loyal and caring friend. Throw this book across the room Want to Read saving…. Not much of a gesture at bridge-mending if read in that light, really.

mulin Glegg are two more characters with serious depth and are fine additions to the cast. In my defense, this love triangle had everything: In my opinion, of course. I enjoyed the last third, when Maggie was older, so much more, because it talked about topics Ll am familiar with in Victorian literature and that I love.
At times her actions were rational and just, but at times they were impulsive displaying a lack of self-command.

It’s just that it wasn’t my cup of tea. I really enjoyed that The Mill on the Floss started off as a childhood novel, I have rarely read any in Victorian literature so far and it helped me to grow to care about Maggie, fliss well as to see all o 3.
She even left Stephen to come back to Tom who didn’t accept her until they both died. He was a dutiful brother but not a caring one and Maggie, being sensitive, was driven to find brotherly lfoss elsewhere. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. The pacing was quite weird for me, in a way it almost felt like it was longer than Middlemarchwhich isn’t the case at all, so that’s how much it dragged I kept changing my opinion of it as I read.
