Description:
Novel by George Eliot, published in three volumes in 1860. It sympathetically portrays the vain efforts of Maggie Tulliver to adapt to her provincial world. The tragedy of her plight is underlined by the actions of her brother Tom, whose sense of family honor leads him to forbid her to associate with the one friend who appreciates her intelligence and imagination. When she is caught in a compromising situation, Tom renounces her altogether, but brother and sister are finally reconciled in the end as they try in vain to survive a climactic flood.

George Eliot's first attempt at fiction, and one that fixed her career. It has qualities of humour and tenderness that have not often been equalled. It has a particular value as a record of an English country life that is rapidly passing away.

Book cover: MiddlemarchMiddlemarch
by - Estes and Lauriat
Intelligent and wonderfully sophisticated book with sharp commentary on many social issues of the time. Wonderfully imperfect characters are caught in the webs of dilemmas. Their behaviours are quite coherent with their subcultures and characters.

A historical novel set in the fifteenth century. Romola is the female protagonist through which the story is rendered; her intellectual growth, often painful, reflects the religious and cultural transitions of the Italian Renaissance in Florence.

Book cover: The Lifted VeilThe Lifted Veil
by - Oxford University Press
A dark fantasy drawing on interest in the physiology of the brain, mesmerism, phrenology, and experiments in revification, it is Eliot's anatomy of her own moral philosophy. The story explores fiction's ability to offer insight into the self.
