Description

Designed to appeal to the book lover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much-loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure. With enchanting detail and precise plotting, George Eliot's most autobiographical novel tells the story of a brother and sister pulled apart. This edition of The Mill on the Floss features a new introduction by Professor Kathryn Hughes. Maggie Tulliver and her brother Tom enjoy a close friendship and a rural childhood on the banks of the river Floss. But the approach of adulthood brings tension to their relationship; intelligent and fiery Maggie tests the boundaries of nineteenth-century society in her search for love while Tom embraces convention and accepts his father's desire for him to become a businessman. Increasingly self-righteous, Tom disapproves of his sister's suitors and when he discovers that she took a fateful boat trip with Stephen Guest, her cousin's fiance, he turns his back on her. Maggie is ostracized by her beloved brother and her own community, and only through tragic events are the siblings reunited...

Author Biography

George Eliot was born Mary Anne Evans in 1819. Her father was the land agent of Arbury Hall in Warwickshire, in the library of which Eliot embarked upon a brilliant self-education. She moved to London in 1850 and shone in its literary circles. It was, however, her novels of English rural life that brought her fame, starting with Adam Bede, published under her new pen-name in 1859. She went on to publish novels including The Mill on the Floss in 1860 and Middlemarch in 1871 as well as poetry and non-fiction. Queen Victoria was one of her most devoted readers. Eliot died in 1880.
