The Mill on the Floss in half the time.

Maggie Tulliver's quick imagination is stifled by the claustrophobic contraints of family life in a provincial town. Her parents suppress her natural intelligence and instead focus their hopes and ambitions on her brother Tom. Disapproved of by all her relatives, Maggie yearns to be loved and admired as unconditionally as she loves and admires her morally unbending brother.

But when Maggie does find love it compromises her irretrievably, and she has to face the bleak consequences of not conforming...

About the Author

George Eliot was the pen-name of Mary Anne Evans. Born in 1819, she was the author of many titles, including Adam Bede (1859); Silas Marner (1861); Romola (1863); Felix Holt, The Radical (1866); Middlemarch (1872); Daniel Deronda (1876) and many others. She is buried in Highgate Cemetery, London in the area reserved for religious dissenters, next to George Henry Lewes, her first husband.

George Eliot

Mary Ann (Marian) Evans, better known by her pen name George Eliot, was an English novelist. She was one of the leading writers of the Victorian era. Her novels, largely set in provincial England, are well known for their realism and psychological perspicacity.

She used a male pen name, she said, to ensure that her works were taken seriously. Female authors published freely under their own names, but Eliot wanted to ensure that she was not seen as merely a writer of romances. An additional factor may have been a desire to shield her private life from public scrutiny and to prevent scandals attending her relationship with the married George Henry Lewes. They lived together as man and wife, but Lewes was unable to divorce his wife from his failed marriage.
