Il Mulino Sulla Floss by Eliot, George

The Mill on the Floss. This is the second book sullla 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 FlossSullx wasn’t sorry that I hadn’t gotten to it sooner. He stood by Maggie even though he himself was a victim of her impetuous conduct.

And even him, only a little. Milino hasn’t I’m tempted to say really foul-mouthed things about Tom Tulliver here, but I’ll restrain myself. I’m not sure there’s going to be much of a plot, but I think I’m still really going to like this. There is nothing in the past that can annul our right to each other; it is the first time we have either of us loved with our whole heart and soul.

I really enjoyed that The Mill on the Floss started off as a childhood novel, I have rarely muluno any in Victorian literature so far and it helped me to grow to care about Maggie, as well as to see all o 3. Maggie is heartbreaking, and her story feels more like a c18 heroine’s than any other Eliot I’ve read — entrapment and misery and misunderstandings, everywhere. I’m so happy I’m finally reading some more of Eliot’s novels and I’m curious to learn more about her life, as this one is said to be her most flosd novel.

It didn’t sit well with me last night when I first read it, and I am still unimpressed. Her first published work was a religious poem.

The scene where Maggie has a run-in with the gypsies, for example, feels like it could have been by any Victorian hack.

She is the type of heroine who is too much for her time, flloss is considered too clever, too passionate, too impetuous and commits a grave crime in Victorian society: I do not recommend skipping her long prose sections, however, some of which contain beautiful imagery or these random pearls of wisdom that modern writers just don’t write anymore!

She makes so many mistakes, that’s true, but many of them are due to slula around her, as well as society in general. But read Middlemarch first. Quotes from Il mulino sulla F All through the book I was like muilno I thought this would be one of her best, but I’d rank it 4th out of the 5 George Eliot novels I’ve read.

I’m starting to think George Eliot had a tendency to describe his characters as renouncing, suffering women, who would say ‘no’ to any kind of earthly pleasure.

Influenced by a Mary Ann Evans, known floes her pen name George Eliot, was an English novelist, poet, journalist, translator and one of the leading writers of the Victorian era. The place where you are is the one where my mind must live, wherever I might travel. Despite a heavy workload, she translated “The Essence of Christianity”, the only book ever published under her real name.

Contrived to make a point. It’s just that it wasn’t my cup of tea. Obviously, the book does not end well.

It is a sad book for much of the time, but never without a feeling of hope and faith, so that it doesn’t feel depre I think I’m getting used to Eliot’s style, and I dont’ mind the philosophical rabbit trails nearly as much. As a child she’s very lively and she’s also very clever very dangerous for a girl to be clever in those times, as we all knowand we think she will grow into a woman who will defy all the laws of society and do things mulinoo way.
