FREE DOWNLOAD ã The Mill on the Floss George Eliot ç 0 FREE DOWNLOAD Misunderstood Maggie Tulliver is torn Her rebellious and passionate nature demands expression while her provincial kin and community expect self denial Based closely on the author's own life Maggie's story explores th. Upon completion of the The Mill on the Floss I realized that I had just finished something monumental a staggeringly amazing literary achievement This novel written by George Eliot Mary Anne or Marian Evans and first published by Blackwood and Sons in 1860 could have just as easily been titled Pride and Prejudice had not that title been put to use already Some twenty four hours after finishing this book I am coming to the conclusion that Eliot may in fact represent the absolute pinnacle of writing in the Victorian Age This is not in any way shape or form a Silly novel by a Lady Novelist see Eliot s essay Silly Novels by Lady Novelists Westminster Review October 1856 This novel is not of the mind and millinery rank and beauty or of the enigmatic species This is a novel in the finest tradition of Realism and I can t help but think that it must have served as some form of inspiration for the later naturalism of Thomas HardyThis book should really be reuired reading for parents and brothers and sisters The story of the young Maggie Tulliver and her relationship with her older brother Tom and her parents is compelling and is one that we can all relate to on so many levels It warns us that actions things said or beliefs instilled upon the young can have profound implications for years to comeI suppose in some respects that The Mill on the Floss can also be considered to be the bildungsroman of Maggie Tulliver as Eliot clearly focuses on the psychological and moral growth of Maggie her main protagonist from when she was a little girl until she has become a young adult It is the ability or inability of Maggie to adapt to changes in her own life and the lives of those she loves around her that provides the main premise of the narrative In the spirit of full disclosure I began to fall in love with Maggie early on in the novel and loved her with each page that I turnedIn my opinion Maggie Tulliver is one of the most engaging and endearing heroines that a reader will encounter in Victorian fiction Eliot s raven haired and dark eyed beautiful creation manages to combine the goodness sensitivity and natural curiosity of Elizabeth Gaskell s Molly Gibson the spirit and independence of Charles Dickens s Bella Wilfur and the wit and humor of Jane Austen s Elizabeth Bennet Maggie Tulliver has a heart the size of the sun nearly as bright and burns just as hotly She wants to please everyone all of the time and it is this propensity to love and be loved that leads to her troubles Mostly though Maggie desires than anything to please her older brother Tom and in return to be unconditionally loved by himWe see an example of Maggie s spiritual and emotional maturation in her heart felt and frank discussion with Stephen Guest a young man who has fallen head over heels in love with her even though he is essentially promised to Maggie s cousin Lucy Deane She was silent for a few moments with her eyes fixed on the ground then she drew a deep breath and said looking up at him with solemn sadness O it is difficult life is very difficult It seems right to me sometimes that we should follow our strongest feeling but then such feelings continually come across the ties that all our former life has made for us the ties that have made others dependent on us and would have cut them in two If life were uite easy and simple as it might have been in paradise and we could always see that one being first towards whom I mean if life did not make duties for us before love comes love would be a sign that two people ought to belong to each other But I see I feel it is not so now there are things we must renounce in life some of us must resign love Many things are difficult and dark to me but I see one thing uite clearly that I must not cannot seek my own happiness by sacrificing others Love is natural but surely pity and faithfulness and memory are natural too And they would live in me still and punish me if I did not obey them I should be haunted by the suffering I had caused Our love would be poisoned Don t urge me help me help me because I love you These are the words of a young woman that has finally found herself and has reconciled the passionate and intellectual sides of her spirit Arguably one of the most elouent and beautiful passages I ve read in some timeFinally like Dickens does with the Thames River in his magnum opus Our Mutual Friend Eliot weaves the theme of The Floss the river that binds together the peoples and the landscape of Maggie s world through the novel with her use of metaphor and allusion and pastoral description The novel starts with The Floss and through the course of the book it is always there relentlessly flowing to the sea In some respects The Floss represents the things we say feelings we have or actions we take that get away from us sometimes flowing past us becoming irretrievable and lost forever Ultimately it is this connection with The Floss that Eliot masterfully uses to bring her readers to the close of this magnificent novel culminating in the great climax that finally defeats pride and prejudice and brings Maggie the redemption she longs for

FREE DOWNLOAD ã The Mill on the Floss George Eliot ç 0 FREE DOWNLOAD E conflicts of love and loyalty and the friction between desire and moral responsibility Written in 1860 The Mill on the Floss was published to instant popularity An accurate evocative depiction of English rural life. I suspect between this novel and Middlemarch George Eliot is becoming my favorite nineteenth century novelist I wish she were still alive so that I could write her fan lettersThe Mill on the Floss is funny and moving and philosophical Eliot does so many different things well she s witty and detached and then she writes a love scene that makes your knees go wobbly Middlemarch struck me the same way it s incredibly romantic and then it does things with that romance crazy thematic plot things that sometimes make you feel like the author has punched you in the stomachI think George Eliot and Joss Whedon would probably get alongThe novel is also cool because it s sort of a novel about adultery without actually being about adultery It feels very modern and unflinching the so because George Eliot actually spent much of her adult life in a happy but socially isolating relationship out of wedlock so she had perspective on The SystemThe last couple hundred pages are incredibly intense perhaps the so because I read them in one go on a very long train ride most of which was spent on the edge of my not very comfortable seat It s one of those novels whose ending is absolutely unguessable and yet feels vitally important Holy crap I asked myself how is this going to end and will I be able to live a happy and well adjusted life after I finish itI m still working on that happy and well adjusted part The ending well is it ever an ending Words like mythic and apocalyptic do not give it justice I m still not sure how I feel about it in some ways she gave me just the ending I didn t want but she did it in such a way that I had to admire Also it is very very intriguing and makes me want to write essays about it which is usually a good thingGreat characters great plot great themes A very well rounded novel

FREE DOWNLOAD ã The Mill on the Floss George Eliot ç 0 FREE DOWNLOAD This compelling narrative features a vivid and realistic cast headed by one of 19th century literature's most appealing characters Reuired reading for most students it ranks prominently among the great Victorian novel. George Elliot is both impressively encyclopaedic from Captain Swing to pedallersand narrowly individual education shaping young people to be able to do nothing in particular in this other tale of provincial life before the Railway Age One lesson here is thatNature repairs her ravages p490 but people don t The fatal flaw of bearing a grudge is passed down from father Tulliver to son Tom so underlining that The days of chivalry are not gone notwithstanding Burke s grand dirge over them they live still in that far off worship paid by many a youth and man to that woman of whom he never dreams that he shall touch so much as her little finger or the hem of her robe Bob with pack on his back has as respectful adoration for this dark eyed maiden as if he had been a knight in armour calling aloud on her name as he pricked on to the fight p266 so to Tom jealously guards his inherited grudge against the Wakems for whom it has all been just businessIt struck me that Elliot must have been a reader herself and I felt was defining her heroine in relation to a dozen others familiar to mid Victorian readers A Gretna green marriage or life as a teacher not for her girl Neither Villette nor the proper Victorian solution of marriage to the most eligible bachelor that the town has to offer or to the parish priest which itself as we know from Middlemarch is not an ending but only the beginning of a story for a woman of intelligence offer any hope here Elliot is much meaner with her characters Life for her is work without short cuts The plot of the family prosperity eaten up by a court case struck me as a bit Bleak House on the downside the eventual ending is foreshadowed very early on making it clear that is only ever going to be semi autobiographical at most Because the provincial girl we know did grow up to write a secular gospel in her novels as answer to Matthew Arnold s Dover Beach The sea of Faith may withdraw but literature covers the naked shingles of the shore Fittingly for a book in which education is a central theme although the educations provided don t match the needs of those taught in a world in which the central concern is to lend out your money at five percent rather than four whenever possible Maggie imagines a cross between sir Walter Scott an Byron as potentially satisfying but maybe Elliot is offering up her own books as an answer to life s problems we have in the vision of the ruined Rhine castles of the robber barons a sense of the insufficiency of medieval attitudes to the honour of debt and repayment in the modern age Times change Does Eliot teach us how to live better lives in these changed timesOn reflection I don t much like the great flood she uses to close the story just as in the inundation myths it suggests the creator has run out of ideas and can find no way of resolving the narrative having as per above rejected solutions that other authors found acceptable and so has nothing left but for to wash the slate clean Despite proposing herself as the answer to unsatisfactory reading this iss till an apprentice work in which character is stronger than plot for all that she disapproves of Novalis claiming that character is destiny her story seems to me to bear out his suggestion since none of her characters escape the destiny which their characters point towards within this society
