George Eliot and The Mill on the Floss
Mary Ann Evans, who became George Eliot, adored her brother Isaac, but when she began to live with a man out of wedlock, Isaac cut her off. In Eliot’s novel, Maggie Tulliver is cleverer, stronger and far more attractive than her brother Tom, but he disdains her faithful sisterly love. Let’s examine this rich novel to see how the author’s own experience shaped this portrayal of family life in 19th century England.
