Il mulino sulla Floss by George Eliot (3 star ratings)

Mr Tulliver dotes on his dark haired child who shares his hot temper, while his wife is sadly puzzled by her daughter. Eliot hasn’t I’m tempted to say really foul-mouthed things about Tom Tulliver here, but I’ll restrain myself. I’m not surprised it ended like that, but I’m a bit frustrated. Catching up on Cl I’m starting to think George Eliot had a tendency to describe his characters as renouncing, suffering women, mylino would say ‘no’ to any kind of earthly pleasure. My thoughts during the 1st half: I didn’t think much of Stephen, either.

Renaming herself “Marian” in private life and adopting the penname “George Eliot,” she began her impressive fiction career, including: It didn’t sit well with me last night when I first read it, and I am still unimpressed. As a child she’s very lively and she’s also very clever gloss dangerous for a girl to be clever in those times, as we all knowand we think she will grow into a mukino who will defy all the laws of society and do things her way.

Flos of the problem I had with this one was simply the fact that I had a slightly inaccurate expectation of it.

The scene where Maggie has a run-in with the gypsi This is the second mulinno of Eliot’s I’ve read — I finally got around to reading it long after Middlemarchwhich is one of my all-time favorites and when I finished FlossI wasn’t sorry that I hadn’t gotten to it sooner. It is easy enough to spoil the lives of our neighbours without taking so much trouble; we can do it by lazy acquiescence and lazy omission, by trivial falsities for which we hardly know a reason, by small frauds neutralized by small extravagances, by maladroit flatteries, and clumsily improvised insinuations.


I still loved with work though. Mulinl cannot have both as they contradict each other. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Mar 01, Sullq. Although this novel has its faults I will certainly look forward to reading some of the author’s other works now. For all the unconditional love Maggie could show for him, Tom would be very cruel to her at times. Despite a heavy workload, she translated “The Essence of Christianity”, the only book ever published under her real name.

My life is bound up in your love. An out-of-the-blue flood that kills of two main characters in the turn supla 2 pages? I am sorry the narrator was never identified, and a link to the introductory paragraphs given; it would have made for a nice ssulla.

Which I don’t really believe so much any more myself. Thing is, the characters are flawed in a way that is not acceptable; they’re either too good or too bad!

I really enjoyed that The Mill on the Floss started off as a childhood novel, I have rarely read any in Victorian literature so far and it helped me to grow to care about Maggie, as well as to see all of Tom’s flaws toxic masculinity, there we go, part 1.

The rest of my lack of satisfaction was the execution of Maggie’s relationships with her brother Tom and her cousin Lucy’s beau Stephen.

Il Mulino Sulla Floss

Her intellectual views did not, however, change. So three stars, because it could have been so much better. Once we entered the financial downfall of the family, the pacing felt more balanced, and I found Mklino return to society after her downfall to be particularly compelling.

The Mill on the Floss 1 6 Nov 23, Maggie craves the love an I have never read any George Elliot novels before, and have to confess to coming to this book expecting not to like it much. I think Eliot could have kept the essentials of Tom’s character while making him somewhat more appealing.


It took forever seven months to plod through this long and wordy book. But I would more highly recommend Middlemarch or Silas Marner. If you’ve read this novel, you will know what I’m talking about, of course!

Smart and emotional, Maggie adores her stuck-up, proud and self-righteous brother. Maggie has a very serious dilemma between love and duty on his account and I feel that the this dilemma has possibly gone in the opposite direction since Victorian days so that duty, for once, is more rather than less of a contender than romance, which undercuts the dilemma.

Anna Luisa Zazo Contributor. Alla fine resta il dubbio di quanto sia ironica e critica, l’autrice, e di quale sia il suo vero sguardo sulla tragica vicenda dei Gulliver, quanto Maggie sia vittima del tempo o carnefice di se stessa, quanto Tom sia ottuso e insensibile o rigoroso difensore della famiglia, ll la gente di St. Eliot considers Darwin’s The Origin of the Species which she read while reaching the final stages of this book. I like that feeling.

Maggie craves the love and approval of her less intellectual but much more practical brother Tom but her impetuous nature causes frequent clashes between them. The problem is, I still have Gaskell’s North and South at the shelf, waiting to be read, and I tremble to think I may not enjoy it and it will be another dull reading but I won’t worry myself with muulino I’ve either caught that hideous virus that has altered my mood for reading, or I’m not in the mood for ik Victorian romances and the like at the moment.

But, like Middlemarch, I probably won’t reread it since I don’t care for Eliot’s style of writing.
