Victorian Britain can accept romantic love. It can deal with making ‘a good marriage’, as in marrying for wealth or a title. What Victorian society struggles with is desire, sensuality and wantonness. Thought to be semi-autobiographical, at least in sentiment, The Mill on the Floss follows the heroine, Maggie Tulliver, as she grows from girlhood into a stunningly beautiful, voluptuous woman who knows her own mind and will make her own decisions. The story follows her desire to have an impulsive, sensually fulfilling life, while also seeking to be respectable to society and her family – especially needing the love and acceptance of her brother Tom.
Once again, Eliot succeeds in creating well rounded, interesting characters as well as exploring the political and social climate in which they live. The prevalent themes are the place of women in Victorian Britain, the exploration of money, debt, family cohesion and how easy it is to be perceived as a social outcast through social, physical or moral disadvantages.
A wonderfully penned novel in seven books with a finale that is simply breath-taking.
George Eliot also wrote Adam Bede, Silas Marner, Middlemarch, Daniel Deronda, Romola, Felix Holt the Radical as well as volumes of poetry.
George Eliot has to be one of the greatest English language novelists ever

George Eliot has to be one of the greatest English language novelists ever. This is a relatively early work but I found it deeply original and moving. She does launch into some extended philosophical and analytical passages – which I found fascinating and easy to read. But you can easily skip those if you want to focus on a damned good story with wonderful, vivid and surprising characters. I highly recommend it to anyone with even a passing interest in great literature.

A beautifully told story about attitudes and life in 19th Century England.
