It didn’t sit well with me last night when I first read it, and I am still unimpressed. I must admit that I was not drawn into the novel as much as I was for Middlemarch, however Eliot’s writing provides insight into her society in a rather unique way.

It’s the particular way she formulates her big ethical ambitions which makes me feel that her books need to “work out” like a sum to be the artistic achievement they’re supposed to be and they just don’t “work out” for me. Eliot hasn’t I’m tempted to mulibo really foul-mouthed things about Tom Tulliver here, but I’ll restrain myself.

Interestingly, both are romantic tragedies which end up with the heroine drowning, in dramatic fashion, close to her loved one. Her reaction to it, and all that followed from it, are things I’m still pondering two days after finishing the novel, and her aruments with Philip about asceticism are ones I’ve had Without spoilers, all I can say is that I was very irritated with the ending.


Thanks for telling us about the problem. Perfectly fine George Eliot rural stuff makes up much of the novel, with all that quaint idiosyncratic textural detail, but I found the last pages a real drag.

Il Mulino Sulla Floss by Eliot, George

The author is drawing an interesting picture of a rural middle class ish community. A beautiful classic, a harsh study of the condition of women in the 19th century.

Wives and Daughters was a hard pill to swallow and this The Mill on the Floss could have been a little bit better. The story is somewhat a tragedy, but the author expresses her apology for the tragic ending by finally uniting Tom and Maggie and throwing a hint at the concluding paragraphs that Maggie’s yearning for acceptance, approval and love was finally fulfilled.
