Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rebellious and affectionate, Maggie Tulliver is always in trouble. Recalling her own experiences as a girl, George Eliot describes Maggie's turbulent childhood with a sympathetic engagement that makes the early chapters of The Mill on the Floss among the most immediately attractive she ever wrote. As Maggie approaches adulthood, her spirited temperament brings her into conflict with her family, her community, and her much-loved brother Tom. Still more painfully, she finds her own nature divided between the claims of moral responsibility and her passionate hunger for self-fulfillment. George Eliot's searching exploration of Maggie's complex dilemma has made this one of the most enduringly popular of her works.

Synopsis:

As Maggie Tulliver approaches adulthood, her spirited temperament brings her into conflict with her family, her community, and her much-loved brother Tom. Still more painfully, she finds her own nature divided between the claims of moral responsibility and her passionate hunger for self-fulfillment. This edition of The Mill on the Floss offers the definitive Clarendon text with a new Introduction which deals with Eliot, Darwinism, and the intellecutal life of the period, as well as providing close textual analysis.

Synopsis:

This classic account describes the known exact solutions of problems of heat flow, with detailed discussion of all the most important boundary value problems.

The book is exemplary of its time, being that it is a mannerisms novel, full of gossip, deceit, and lust. While it displays an excellent skill for writing about rural London of the 1800's, my bias towards a more significant character and plot line cause me to rank it at a 4. While Eliot very artfully describes what she is trying to display to her readers, I could only help but wish that the characters in the novel were more significant to their surroundings. I know that the reason for Eliot's novel was not to tell the story of a significant hero in the history of London, but, like I said earlier, I have a bias towards that sort of thing. That being said, I did thoroughly enjoy the description and series of events that give the reader a reason to stay up late into the night reading chapter after chapter. Even with the simple and average characters, Eliot still managed to insert a few surprising twists and turns, especially at the end....
