Life on a River

by No1Vandyfan on Apr 2, 2009

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.
