The Mill On The FlossReview:
"As one comes back to [Eliot's] books after years of absence they pour out, even against our expectations, the same store of energy and heat, so that we want more than anything to idle in the warmth."

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
