Brown boards with gilt lettering. 511 pp. Maggie Tulliver's quick imagination is stifled by the claustrophobic contraints of family life in a provincial town. Her parents suppress her natural intelligence and instead focus their hopes and ambitions on her brother Tom. Disapproved of by all her relatives, Maggie yearns to be loved and admired as unconditionally as she loves and admires her morally unbending brother. But when Maggie does find love it compromises her irretrievably, and she has to face the bleak consequences of not conforming (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions, and all types of Academic Literature. )
George Eliot is Mary Ann Evans who assumed her pen name because in Victorian England females were not expected to become authors. It was felt that a book written by a woman would not sell. How much our world has changed. Eliot used herself, family members and others she knew to describe her book characters. The mill on the Floss River in St. Oggs almost becomes a character who influences Maggie Tolliver and her friends. Maggie sees the world like a young child, and is awed by it, while finding it confusing. After she spends a night on a boat with a male friend, her life becomes more of a living nightmare.
