Review:

with each volume having an introduction by an acknowledged expert, and exhaustive notes, the World's Classics are surely the most desirable series and, all-round, the best value for money --Oxford Times

About the Author:

Mary Ann Evans (1819-80) began her literary career as a translator and later editor of the Westminster Review. In 1857 she published Scenes of a Clerical Life, the first of 8 novels she would publish under the name of 'George Eliot', including The Mill on the Floss, Middlemarch and Daniel Deronda.

Book Description Penguin, Harmondsworth, UK. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Neu. Ohne Schutzumschlag. 534 S. (Achtung: Dieser Titel kann nicht mit Kreditkarte bezahlt werden, nur Banküberweisung) This novel, based on George Eliot's own experiences of provincial life, is a masterpiece of ambiguity in which moral choice is subjected to the hypocrisy of the Victorian age. As the headstrong Maggie Tulliver grows into womanhood, the deep love which she has for her brother Tom turns into conflict, because she cannot reconcile his bourgeois standards with her own lively intelligence. Maggie is unable to adapt to her community or break free from it, and the result, on more than one level, is tragedy., Bookseller Inventory # 003716
