  • "Maggie Tulliver, passionate and imaginative, comes into conflict with the middle-class narrowness of the town of St. Ogg's and with her beloved brother Tom."@en
  • "Maggie Tulliver, like her father, is affectionate, headstrong, and rebellious. Her brother Tom, like his mother and aunts, is self-righteous and self-satisfied. When she is befriended by Philip Wakem, whose father helped ruin Mr. Tulliver's business, Tom self-rightiously banishes Philip from Maggie's life. Along with Philip goes her interest in art, music, and literature. She turns to religion in an attempt to stupefy her faculties and to banish all wishing from her life, while Tom works off the debts that have resulted from his father's bankruptcy and death. She becomes attached to Stephen Guest, her cousin's fiance, and, accidentally drifts away with him in a boat until it becomes too late for them to return home the same day. Tom, now the model of a successful St. Ogg's businessman, repudiates her as a lost woman. "You shall find no home with me - you have disgraced us all." When the river Floss floods and Tom is trapped at the mill, Maggie rows out to save him. In the boat with his sister, Tom re-evaluates his actions and their lives."@en

  • "One of George Eliot's best-loved works, The Mill on the Floss is a brilliant portrait of the bonds of provincial life as seen through the eyes of the free-spirited Maggie Tulliver, who is torn between a code of moral responsibility and her hunger for self-fulfillment. Rebellious by nature, she causes friction both among the townspeople of St. Ogg's and in her own family, particularly with her brother, Tom. Maggie's passionate nature makes her a beloved heroine, but it is also her undoing. The Mill on the Floss is a luminous exploration of human relationships and of a heroine who critics say closely resembles Eliot herself. - Publisher."
