9780099519065: The Mill on the Floss (Vintage Classics)

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY MARINA LEWYCKA

Maggie and Tom Tulliver are both wilful, passionate children, and their relationship has always been tempestous. As they grow up together on the banks of the River Floss, Tom's self-righteous stubborness and Maggie's emotional intensity increasingly brings them into conflict, particularly when Maggie's beauty sparks some ill-fated attachments. George Eliot's story of a brother and sister bound together by their errors and affections is told with tenderness, energy and a profound understanding of human nature.

Review:

"It was my first really grown-up book, but it is the book that wrings my heart and I feel I bump into elements of it all my life" ( Independent)

"A rich, gripping tragedy...narrative energy and emotional intelligence" ( Mail on Sunday)

"If I had an imaginary friend, Maggie was it. I loved her, I laughed with her, I agonised about her problems, I cried over her . . . and I still do...George Eliot's understanding of human nature is profound...the greatest British novelist of any age" ( Daily Mail)

"Maggie's dilemma is one that pervades much of Eliot's writing: the dilemma of head versus heart, the woman's struggle to be taken seriously as an intellect while coping with the demands of uninvited passion... Eliot dealt in human relationships and she was a mistress of the art" ( The Times)

Book Description:

A powerful and dramatic tragedy about the struggle between head and heart
