    Upon completion of the The Mill on the Floss I realized that I had just finished something monumental—a staggeringly amazing literary achievement This novel written by ‘George Eliot’ Mary Anne or Marian Evans and first published by Blackwood and Sons in 1860 could have just as easily been titled “Pride and Prejudice” had not that title been put to use already Some twenty four hours after finishing this book I am coming to the conclusion that Eliot may in fact represent the absolute pinnacle of writing in the Victorian Age This is not in any way shape or form a “Silly novel by a Lady Novelist” see Eliot’s essay “Silly Novels by Lady Novelists” Westminster Review October 1856 This novel is not of the “mind and millinery” “rank and beauty” or of the “enigmatic” species This is a novel in the finest tradition of Realism and I can’t help but think that it must have served as some form of inspiration for the later naturalism of Thomas HardyThis book should really be required reading for parents and brothers and sisters The story of the young Maggie Tulliver and her relationship with her older brother Tom and her parents is compelling and is one that we can all relate to on so many levels It warns us that actions things said or beliefs instilled upon the young can have profound implications for years to comeI suppose in some respects that The Mill on the Floss can also be considered to be the bildungsroman of Maggie Tulliver as Eliot clearly focuses on the psychological and moral growth of Maggie her main protagonist from when she was a little girl until she has become a young adult It is the ability or inability of Maggie to adapt to changes in her own life and the lives of those she loves around her that provides the main premise of the narrative In the spirit of full disclosure I began to fall in love with Maggie early on in the novel and loved her with each page that I turnedIn my opinion Maggie Tulliver is one of the most engaging and endearing heroines that a reader will encounter in Victorian fiction Eliot’s raven haired and dark eyed beautiful creation manages to combine the goodness sensitivity and natural curiosity of Elizabeth Gaskell’s ‘Molly Gibson’ the spirit and independence of Charles Dickens’s ‘Bella Wilfur’ and the wit and humor of Jane Austen’s ‘Elizabeth Bennet’ Maggie Tulliver has a heart the size of the sun nearly as bright and burns just as hotly She wants to please everyone all of the time and it is this propensity to love and be loved that leads to her troubles Mostly though Maggie desires than anything to please her older brother Tom and in return to be unconditionally loved by himWe see an example of Maggie’s spiritual and emotional maturation in her heart felt and frank discussion with Stephen Guest a young man who has fallen head over heels in love with her even though he is essentially ‘promised’ to Maggie’s cousin Lucy Deane “She was silent for a few moments with her eyes fixed on the ground then she drew a deep breath and said looking up at him with solemn sadness—“O it is difficult—life is very difficult It seems right to me sometimes that we should follow our strongest feeling—but then such feelings continually come across the ties that all our former life has made for us—the ties that have made others dependent on us—and would have cut them in two If life were quite easy and simple as it might have been in paradise and we could always see that one being first towards whom I mean if life did not make duties for us before love comes love would be a sign that two people ought to belong to each other But I see—I feel it is not so now there are things we must renounce in life some of us must resign love Many things are difficult and dark to me but I see one thing quite clearly—that I must not cannot seek my own happiness by sacrificing others Love is natural but surely pity and faithfulness and memory are natural too And they would live in me still and punish me if I did not obey them I should be haunted by the suffering I had caused Our love would be poisoned Don’t urge me help me—help me because I love you” These are the words of a young woman that has finally found herself and has reconciled the passionate and intellectual sides of her spirit Arguably one of the most eloquent and beautiful passages I’ve read in some timeFinally like Dickens does with the Thames River in his magnum opus Our Mutual Friend Eliot weaves the theme of The Floss the river that binds together the peoples and the landscape of Maggie’s world through the novel with her use of metaphor and allusion and pastoral description The novel starts with The Floss and through the course of the book it is always there relentlessly flowing to the sea In some respects The Floss represents the things we say feelings we have or actions we take that get away from us sometimes ‘flowing’ past us becoming irretrievable and lost forever Ultimately it is this connection with The Floss that Eliot masterfully uses to bring her readers to the close of this magnificent novel culminating in the great climax that finally defeats pride and prejudice and brings Maggie the redemption she longs for
